    Carry on tool kit??

    Are there any recommended tool kit packages to carry on the bike. i.e. allen keys, air pump, extra tubes. I am new to the trails and do not know what is recommended to carry. Thanks in advance.

    It depends on how far away from civilization you are riding. Generally a multi-tool with allen keys and a chain tool, tire levers, pump, tube and patch kit are adequate to save you from walking. For rides going farther afield consider items such as: an extra derailleur hanger, cell phone, first aid kit, flashlight ect.

    I carry:

    Spare tube (or two)
    Patch kit
    Tire levers (2)
    CO2 cartridges (at least 2, usually 3) and micro-inflator head
    Air pump (i'm a belt-and-suspenders kind of guy)
    Park MTB-3 multi-tool
    Small supply of duct tape (for tire boots)
    First aid kit
    Ride a mountain bike... you will not regret it if you live.
