    What kind of packs does everyone use to carry their gear? I usually use a small saddle pack but I'm finding that it doesn't have enough room. I don't really want to carry a backpack or camelback

    Awesome! Great info for someone like me who is just starting out! I thought of a couple of things, first aid wise and hydration, but never thought about the other necessary tools and equipment in case of a bike malfunction! Good to know!

    Good Info. I consider myself a planner, but would have left out some of the above items.

    Thanks

    Among other things:
    Aspirin, a headache can ruin a great day.

    I wear contacts when I ride, so I bring a pr of spare glasses in case the contacts get messed up/ eyes irritated which leads to eye protection. When you jammin', its a real bummer to get something in your eye.

    I also use a section cut from an old tube to band tools together so they aren't rattling around my pack.

    Good to know. I always bring a salt pack with me when I start getting muscle craps. Chew on it and spit it out. Helps me everytime.

    Somehow I usually end up not carrying anything, as my riding buddy has a backpack that we put all our stuff in

    Just chiming in with what I use/bring:

    Things I bought before actually going on my first ride:
    - A good helmet that fits properly
    - Mountain bike shorts with padded removable inner liner
    - Non-cotton T-shirt
    - Half-finger padded gloves
    - Camelbak M.U.L.E. hydration backpack with extra room for tools and gear

    And the tools/gear I brought along in the pack:
    - Spare tube
    - Patch kit
    - Tire levers
    - Mini pump
    - Topeak Alien II Mini-tool

    After about 4 months of riding my gear has changed quite a bit; now my apparel selection has added:
    - Cycling sunglasses with clear/smoke/amber lenses
    - Full-finger padded gloves
    - Sunscreen
    - Arm sleeves (for when the sun goes down during a ride)
    - Elbow and knee pads
    - Osprey hydration backpack (holds more gear than my Camelbak one)

    And now I carry the following in my pack:
    - Spare tube
    - Patch kit
    - Tire levers
    - CO2 inflator
    - First aid kit
    - Extra CO2 cartridges
    - SRAM Powerlink
    - Zip ties
    - Presta to Schrader adaptor
    - Small sunglass cloth
    - Topeak Mini 20 (smaller than the Alien II)
    - Individually packaged antiseptic hand wipes
    - Individually packaged alcohol wipes
    - A pair of 8" velcro utility straps
    - 400 lumen headlamp (if the ride might go into the evening)

    This along with my cell phone, and instead of my normal wallet I use a small folding ID wallet (only has two slots, like a badge wallet) with my ID on one side and a $20 bill on the other side (just in case)

    It may seem like a lot of stuff, but everything is small and lightweight, and everything takes up only the bottom 1/4 of my hydration pack.

    There is a lot of great input here, though- I'm only riding 2-3 hours max right now (weather/work/school)
    I've learned like a lot of other users are saying -just be best prepared for what your doing.
    With my short rides and terrain I know I only need my patch kit-tube-multi-tools and pump+ camelbak and water bottle.
    I ride in the city so I will never be too far from civilization.
    I will definitely pack extras if I was going on and expedition in a remote area.
    Technically I don't what kind-of riding I do- I just know I ride hard!

    Right now I'm a way beginner and my back country rides are about 3 hours max.

    In my Camelbak Rogue I carry:

    Multi-Tool (I forgot the brand off the top of the my head)
    About 20 feet of paracord
    Mini-pump
    Spare Tubes x2
    Patch Kit
    Cell Phone
    Road-ID
    In the future: Some kind of high carb food (learned the hard way), and extra tire levers.

    The Rogue is designed for bare minimum packing, so that about fills it.

    I would second the comments about carrying emergency contact numbers in your phone. Also, the number one rule of going out into the wilderness is letting others know of your route/plans.

    Can someone educate me on the chainlinks, power links etc ? I just bought a 2012 Trek X-cal, and am not sure what I components I need to get for its chain. No specs are mentioned on their website about what kind of chain it is. So just wondering what I would need to have should the chain break ? I was also wondering if the chain tool in the Topeak Alien 2 would suffice or do I need to buy a separate chain tool ?

    Tons of good info in this thread.
    Im a FF/EMT in Arizona. These smartphones that lots of people are carrying now have a spot in your contacts for your own profile and in case of an emergency whatever it may be that you can put down your emergency contacts,medical info, allergies, meds taking or whatever important notes you want in their. When we arrive on scene and the person cant communicate with us we usually look for a phone and get that info from there.

    Here's my $0.02.

    Things to absolutely buy before riding:
    -- Good, quality helmet (non-negotiable)
    -- Some way to carry water (bottle or camelbak). both. insulated bottle for gatorade, CB for water
    Things that are definitely recommended before riding:
    -- Bike shorts
    -- A CamelBak-type product to carry both water and gear.
    -- Spare tubes
    -- Tire levers (2) Topeak Survival Toolbox 2011
    -- A quality mini-pump (don't skimp with a cheap one, trust me). I do have a $16 lol
    -- Tube patch kit Topeak Survival Toolbox 2011
    -- Good, quality minitool (Topeak Alien II, Crank Bros, or Park Tool offer nice ones) Topeak Survival Toolbox 2011
    -- Gloves. A pair of Mechanix gloves

    Other things that I've learned the hard way to keep in my hydro pack:
    -- Energy gel or some other form of anti-bonk. usually a Clif bar
    -- Handi wipes and/or a little bottle of purell - makes cleaning hands easy for repairs or first aid. Got some wipes
    -- Those small alcohol pads that you get with other stuff - good to clean tubes for patches and are nice for first aid got some
    -- Some form of basic ID w/ pertinent medical info will make one
    -- Cell phone (reception capabilities permitting) sure, drop in the pack
    -- Spare chain links, PowerLinks (2), & a good chain-breaker tool (if not on minitool) need links
    -- A spare rear derailleur hanger need hanger
    -- A comprehensive first aid kit (such as a hiker kit from REI, etc) some basic one from back when. will check expiration now
    -- Zip-ties in assorted sizes got em
    -- A coupla feet of duct tape (just fold it around itself for a nice compact package) wrapped around an old hotel card key
    -- Bug juice see prior gatorade
    -- Shock pump (optional) ??
    -- Small but powerful flashlight (you never know!) guess I'll toss one in
    -- Pliers - I keep a small, cheapie Leatherman knockoff in my pack. It works for the few occassions I need it. got a leatherman of some type
    -- Spoke wrench (if not on minitool) Topeak Survival Toolbox 2011
    -- Some cash in pack
    -- Some form of a sharp blade. got a folding knife

    I'm sure others will have great ideas; I'm undoubtedly forgetting something...

    Cheers, Chris
    great list, thanks. I've built my kit based on this. My notes in red.

    I added sunglasses and camera (sometimes two, regular and gopro) and a handheld HAM radio (just for kicks really). Requires an amateur radio license.

    great thread to start! I have since compiled my pack from this as well with a few of my additions.
    I have my fox pack for mtb and I even use it when riding my road bike...I'm not too worried about saving weight. Just gotta switch out some items for road or mtn depending on my trip.
    I usually carry:
    1 Spare tube, patch kit, 2 Tire levers, Multi-tool (CrankBro19), 3ltr water pack and also an additional water bottle(usually filled with 1/2 water and 1/2 juice or gatorade for a small boost) on my cage, mini-pump(attached to the bike), a small snack, cellphone(Map my ride!), a towel, 5-10$, ID, and my light if not attached to the bike just in case it gets dark!
    Wear: Gloves, Helmet, Sunglasses!!!(A MUST for me) and the rest of your git up...I think I may start packing spare gloves and socks as I seem to always forget my golves and have been getting soggy feet riding through some wet spots lately.

    many ppl in the newb section ask what to carry on rides? While the information
    is extremely helpful (it helped me make out my pack for sure) I'm sure some
    of the people are getting tired of always posting the same information over
    and over again. Like I said just a thought

    I have never used a leather men on the trail. Bike fixes can be done with bike specific multitool. In fact i have never had to use a knife at all. Never had to use a flashlight, if riding at night you should have a light. Your going to have to scrub any wounds with soap and water post ride so no point in first aid kit. Once you dial your shock you wont require a shock pump.

    So my opinion is that one should leave the pocket knives, fist aid kits, shock pumps and flashlights at home.

    Good thread, I will have to take some of these items and create my own day trip list.

    about all I carry right now is a multi bike tool, flat tire repair kit, my "smart"phone, and small handheld air pump. My smartphone triples as cell phone, GPS, and Bike computer.

    I have the Casio Commando from Verizon, got it because of the stand alone GPS feature as well as it meets the mil spec to be rugidized.

    In addition to the standard stuff, a couple of items with very high "value to weight" ratio include:

    - Old expired drivers license (id)
    - Toilet paper in ziplock
    - $10 bill
    - Duct tape (wrapped around shaft of pump or CO2 cartridge)
    - Tie wraps
    - Spare chain link
    - Sticky patch kit

    Nice checklist, worst part is just carrying it all; I'm a bit of a rebel, prefer riding as nekkid as possible.

    other than water and a multi tool, I will have to add a few of these items to my packing list, or at least use the ideas here to start one.

    I like this knife. Credit card thickness and only 1 oz. weight. Fits into the little ID card sleeve in my seat bag with a $20 and some ID in the clip. Also makes a decent beer opener.

    That thing is tiny... I would be afraid I would break it. Good option when you need to save on space and weight.

    I just got into riding and got a 29ner. Does the CO2 cartridge pump work well with such large tubes?
