    frame strap

    Hey guys, thought this would be an easy decision but nope. What frame straps are you guys using. You know the ones that you can strap tube etc to your frame while riding. I'm trying to downsize my pack.

    Thanks

    ^ agreed but only if you're carrying a tube too. It doesn't work so well if you don't carry a tube. As the tube is used strap everything else against.

    I've stopped carrying a conventional tube and now carry the light weight Tubolito tubes slipped inside a piece of old inner tube to protect it and taped it to my frame. For the multitool, tire plug, etc I'm just planning to use a simple strap like the EDC gear strap from One Up.

    Granite rockband carrier strap. Less than $10.00 on amazon and works great for tube, co2, levers. Inner Velcro holds everything in place, outer strap has a ďgrippyĒ back and once itís in place nothing moves.. Bomber design

    Third vote for the Granite Rockband. Not sure exactly how old it is...maybe 2 years. Been through everything, still perfect.

    Will the Granite Rockhand hold just a Crank Brothers M19 multi tool and tire lever in the inner velcro strap? It looks like it relies on a the bulk from a tube to keep everything tight and secure from slipping out.

    That's the issue with the Backcountry strap. Doesn't work without the tube in their.

    Here is how I use my rockband, the pouch has all my misc spare parts and a crank brothers multi tool. My flat tire kit including a tube is in a separate frame bag.

    That looks like a neat setup. What pouch are you using?

    I keep just the tow strap in my dirt bike kit so I had the pouch laying around. Old tent stake pouches work great as well. I like keeping the dirt off my emergency stuff.
