    Post your lightweight carry-along tools etc.

    So what does everyone here do for tools etc.? I see lots of folks toting the kitchen sink for 1 hour rides. I have recently aquired some Fix-it-Sticks to replace my loose allens shown in the photo. I actually added a few grams doing this but like the sticks..plus they are going to offer a chain tool that works with the sticks so I can loose the heavy Park Mini Chain Brute so my setup will be lighter overall with that change. I do a single bottle. What do you carry?

    this
    Wiggle | Ritchey CPR-9 Lightweight Multi-tool | Multi Tools

    and this

    Topeak Ratchet Rocket RX Chain Tool | Chain Reaction Cycles

    With a little tuning you are looking at a 50g multi tool/chainbreaker combo.

    And the minitool shape allows you to work on the mayority of hard to reach bolts, unlike "swiss army" foldaway tools like the lezyne and CB

    Just got a set of fixit sticks too. Waiting for the chain tool, but I have a decent aluminum one that's about 20 years old. May go with the top-cap chain tool from the Specialized SWAT line. Got to play with a demo in the LBS a few days ago, it's slick.

    I've recently shed 25lbs, so in my camelback, I don't notice weight of the spare tube, tools, food etc... but 5lbs off of the bike, wow.

    I like the Lezyne V10 (or SV10). Under $30 off Amazon. About 100g but has everything you need. Carbon 10 version is around 80g, but seriously expensive.
