    • I think taking stuff on a ride is all about karma, if you have the tools to fix it then it's much less likely to break

        • I usually take a propper bag when I go on rides that aren't just short few mile along the road ones.

          In said bag I take:
          Smaller pump (Not quite a mini one)
          Allen key set
          Spare tube
          Glueless patches
          Tyre lever
          Lock (Just in case I stop anywhere)
          Snack(s) of some kind (If not intending to stop of at any shops and or just snack mid-way depening on ride length)
          Wallet (If I intend to stop of at a shop/cafe/whatever for lunch or a just a snack)
          Drink of some kind (I fill my decent size SIS bottle up but do like to have an extra drink for when I stop)
          "They're gonna find out
          I don't know who they are or what they're gonna find out
          But they're gonna find out
          And it's gonna be over real quick"

              • Might as well share a pic of said items (Minus tyre lever)


                And said items go into this bag which is only clean because it's new
