    Oh, and I used to carry my little kit in one of those tubes that fits into a bottle cage. They're really handy as it's simple to swap them from one bike to another. I need to find out what I did with it.

    As often as I can

    Probably not as often as you but then I’m not a TdF winner training for the next Grand Tour ;)
    Don’t you have staff to carry your stuff for you? :biggrin:

    Innertube, Pump, Slime puncture repair patches, Spare Li-on Batteries, Multitool, First Aid Supplies, Spare Lock Key(s) - stored in a 500mL waterbottle.
    Basically all the emergency stuff, if i'm having to dive into my waterbottle for anything the best hope is a derailleur limiter screw issue or a dead torch.

    Alarmed cable-lock, disc lock, in my jersey pocket and whatever food I take.

    Another 500mL waterbottle.

    Garmin & Phone. (attached to a handlebar mount)

    Front Li-on torch
    Rear light
    Helmet camera.

    Judging by the tools some people carry they must ride some pretty unreliable bikes.

    No, we just hate walking that far!
     
  8. Tools and stuff can be carried in a water bottle, or even wrapped in a cloth and slipped inside a seat post.

    Hi Chris

    Are you preparing for a post team car world?

  11. Normally a rack pack. Sometimes in an under seat pack.

    I carry a Tour de France Yorkshire depart souvenir pencil case full of various tools and spares (tyre levers, multi tool with chain tool, pliers, spare split links of various sizes, inner tube patches, tyre boots, odd nuts and bolts, cleat bolts, some duck tape, cable ties, odds and sods) two spare inner tubes, cafe lock, pump. Also spare AAs and AAAs, spare lights if it's going to be dark.

    To be honest I very rarely have to use any of the tools myself but I've often lent them to other people.

    Pump, 2 x inner tube, tyre levers, multitool, a couple of bits of old tyre as tyre boots (for larger cuts), a box of Park instant patches + 2 quicklinks (in the purse), a pair of disc pads, a small bottle of oil, a small roll of insulating tape, and some zip ties (usually - they have a tendency to go walkabout).

    If I'm off touring, both the toolkit and the spares are somewhat more comprehensive (gear cable, brake cable, a tub of assorted nuts & bolts, spare spokes, and associated tools)

    Can't remember the last time I used them, but rather have them than make the call of shame.
