    Cargo Biking Road Kit...

    So, what's in your standard out-and-about kit on a cargo bike? Anything different than when on any other bike? Here's what I've been carrying on my new Dummy... I'd love any suggestions/additions/alterations/etc...

    - Spare Tube
    - Park VP-1 Patch Kit
    - Frame Pump (Zefal HPX-3) - Ended up too long to mount at the seat tube, but it fits fine in the cargo bags.
    - Kryptonite Mini lock (to lock rear wheel to frame)
    - TiGr Bow Lock (to lock front wheel and frame to something)
    - Topeak Hexus-2 Multi Tool

    My typical use is commuting to and from work, playground and grocery runs with the girls, and general about-town riding. Not doing any long touring, camping, or wilderness riding at this point.

    The items I carry on the dummy are:

    - 3 spare tubes (two for me, and one for a friend or stranded rider)
    - patch kit
    - Lezyne Micro Floor Pump
    - Lezyne saber tire levers
    - Gerber Multitool
    - Topeak Mini 18
    - Two U-Locks and a cable
    - 7 tie down straps from harbor freight (part# 67386)
    - 4 bungee cords
    - 5 reusable grocery bags for Costco runs
    - a 100 pack of zip ties
    - 4 grocery store plastic bags*
    - Brooks seat cover (used in conjunction with plastic bags above)
    - Two power links (9spd)
    - three pairs of disposable gloves

    this is what i carry day in and day out for the commute on the dummy (=
