    But would like recommendations on putting something together myself.

    What seat bag, multi-tool, pump, patch set, etc. would you put in your bag for ~$50

    Leyzne L-Caddy - $20
    Park Tool IB-3C multi - $15
    Pair of Pedro irons - $2
    Tube or two if you can fit them - $3 each
    Patch kit - $2
    Some Tyvec squares - FREE
    Blackburn Mammoth 2Stage Pump - $25
    Total - $62

    More than $50 but is a good kit.

    What do you think about the Topeak Alien II vs the Park Tool IB-3C you recommended?

    Yeah...it seems decent and gets alright reviews (better than the Park). I just listed the Park because that is the one I have and I like it well enough. But really any multi-tool that has the tools required to make a trailside fix should work just fine. Topeak is a good brand, at least anything that I have ever had made by them has been good stuff.

    Some from the net, some from what I paid at my LBS.

    Pump, irons, patch kit, and tubes are internet prices. Multi and the Caddy are LBS prices. You can find the L-Caddy online for about $23 and the Park IB-3 for around $18.

    Oh...and sorry I totally missed that you asked me about the prices earlier.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I'll probably go for the same stuff, but I'm going to get a Crank Brothers CB-17 or CB-19 muli-tool. Seems to get positive reviews, and has a lifetime warranty like the Blackburn stuff.

    Yeah...pretty much most of the multi-tools get the job done. Just make sure they have the tools on them that you need. For some reason and I did not realize until I needed it, my Park tool does not have a flat screwdriver which I thought was really stupid. My buddy's bike went down and all we needed to get it fixed was a flat screw driver and nope, it wasn't there.
