    Idea! What's in your wallet? (OT)

    Anything special you take riding to keep you moving. The pink pills are benadryl for wasp attacks and the bolt is for my suspension seat post in case it ever breaks again.

    Something like what you have, but also a first-aid kit, and sometimes an emergency blanket depending on the ride.

    It's replace the Alien as my multitool. It does basically everything that the Alien has, plus a Torx wrench for brake rotor bolts. I've been riding with it for about a year, and I highly recommend it. It's not bulky, it functions very well without being cumbersome and it's 1/2 the price of the Alien.

    if I want to feel special, I sometimes take a picture of a naked chick in my saddle bag. otherwise, on even days, I carry my little plushie Grimace and a mallet. On odd days, like today, I carry the right tools.

    Hbd?

    I usually carry my CA drivers license for ID purposes, especially on the road/fixie in case I'm creamed by a car. Sad but true (sing that like James Hetfield).

    PS - according to the Calendar, *somebody* recently had a birthday, oui? Happy!

    HW <----convinced that the more he posts the easier this'll get.

    My tool is a Specialized; a gift from my wife last Christmas. It works very well and also has a Torx wrench.

    Here's my Camelbak and current contents - just got back from a ride so it's still cold....

    • Brave Solider Crash Pack
    • Brave Solider Antiseptic
    • A homemade first aid kit in Green Zipper (bandaids, advil, etc)
    • Silca pocket pump
    • Spare tube
    • 8mm Allen wrench
    • cloths pin (helps remove tough valves on shocks)
    • Crank Bros tool
    • Hammer Gel
    • Maxit Neck Gator
    • Cash
    • small roll of duct tape
    • Park 3 way spoke tool
    • 2 KMC Missing links 8 speed
    • innovations presta to schrader adapter
    • sample tube of Finish line chain lube
    • Thomson seat post bolt
    • eyeglass repair kit
    • 2 KMC Missing LInks 9 Speed
    • small hose clamp (not sure why that's there - but you never know)
    • 2 - 16gram air carts
    • 2 Pedros tire levers
    • Black Sharpie
    • 6 long zip ties

    • Cycle Wipes (clean up towelette)
    • Park Glueless patches
    • Rema regular patch kit
    • Innovations inflation head
    • Marzocchi air fork adapter
    And the funny part is that is the cleaned out version... I used to be know as the guy who had what you need if you broke - I got tired of standing around and not riding - so I cut back on what I carry.

    This is my normal pack - and I don't run a seat bag. When I race I have a older Sun/Ringle water pack that has a multi tool, inflation device, and tube....

    Hope you all get a good laugh out of my shop in a bag!

    bring a little LED light

    I bring a little keychain LED light. lightweight, and saved my butt on a few night rides. I recommend that and a space blanket in the winter. Otherwise the usual crap that everyone else has.

    I usually don't wear a Camelbak - I toss these into my jersey pockets.

    My ziplock baggie kit:

    - set of Bondhus hex keys - I hate folding ones
    - chainlinks
    - SRAM Powerlink's
    - old WTB chaintool
    - three unthreaded CO2 cartridges
    - push-button CO2 inflator
    - real patch kit
    - quickie patch kit
    - zip ties
    - contact lenses
    - tire levers - one with duct tape but it's toast
    - tire boot - from plastic milk container
    - hair thingies

    In a second ziplock:

    - cellphone
    - cash
    - id
    - car keys

    No baggie:

    - tube
    - energy bars
    - Hammergel
    - Endurolytes in a patch kit box
    - digicam

    Need to add:

    - first aid stuff
    - superglue for sidewall cuts
    - winning lottery ticket
    - keys to a Ferrari

    Ok, that's three things I guess.

    LOL you carry the sharpie for sighning all those autographs! I am going to slim down a little.I seem to be the only one to carry any stuff and have yet to use any of it. I have gone through about a dozen tubes and a bunch of other small stuff that I can not remember. Which none of it yet has been used on my bikes.

    usual stuff, with an old spoke folded in three......

    I use it as a 'third hand' to hold the ends of a broken chain together while I use the chain breaker. Open the spoke into a U shape and insert ends into a link near the ends of the chain. Makes using the chain breaker on a multi tool alot less frustrating.

    Also have the Crank Bros multi tool. Best tool i have owned or used.
