    Accessories?

    Seems like a shame to lighten the bike and then hang all sorts of heavy accessories on it. So I was wondering... What lightweight accessories do people carry?

    I currently carry a very small 8-in-1 multi-tool, a pair of 20g air cylinders with an appropriate adaptor head, a spare tube, and a tiny pair of plastic tire levers. I am idly wondering about switching the tire to a Maxxis Flyweight. I've heard they don't last, but I run tubeless and perhaps it will get me home if I can't re-inflate after a burp?

    I also spotted a Titanium multi-tool on Fleabay. They claim it's 25-27g:

    ELEMENT Titanium 9 in 1 Multi Function Packet Bicycle Tool TM06B001 | eBay

    Any other suggestions?

    I do not carry anything on the bike. In my pocket I carry a Co2 cylinder with Genuine Innovations inflator(as light as they get) and a crank brothers multi tool(multi-5 at 85g).

    Yes, I put my gear in my bladder-pack if I'm wearing one. Or a pocket if I'm wearing a cycling jersey.

    Do you carry a spare tube "just in case?"
