Ah but Sod's law states that the probability of your tyre shredding is inversely proportional to the quantity of tyre boots carried.Steve H said:This morning, I learnt the lesson that its important to take a spare tube / puncture repair kit with me on rides.
Amazing how well a 4 mile walk home in cycling shoes can help to focus the mind!
Anyone else learnt this lesson?
I may have been told i carry to much stuff for emergencies but at least i have never had to walk home yet.alci4 said:carry one spare and a puncture repair kit
took the advice on the forum before i found myself in the walking home situation lol
When I've been on rides with pupils I do carry a lot more stuff then I really need but have usually had to use most of it on kids crappy bikes. I've occaissionaly had to strip derailleurs and chain splitter is esential. Spare chain links, various nuts and bolts, duct tape, string, bits of wire etc. Only had to phone back to school to have 1 pupil collected in school mini-bus so far.cyberknight said:I may have been told i carry to much stuff for emergencies but at least i have never had to walk home yet.
Inner tube,fairy kit,multi tool with chain splitter,mini spanner,pump,instant inflate +seal spray is what i have as standard.
looking at getting a pair of small pliers as well . .
