Only a No4 nedrapier? Hardly worth bothering with...
What tools in your camelback
Chainring bolts (I seem to eat these, anyone else?)
Patches + pump if going out for more than a few hours, not used a tube in years but it could avert disaster.
Mech hanger and gear cable on the odd occasion I use a bike with gears.

What's the point in the little hooky bit?
That hooks onto a spoke so you can lever out a bit of tyre and then have hands free to work on the next bit of tyre.
goldenwonder, I'm not one of those riders who takes loads of tools out "just in case" I guess it might struggle with some jobs, but I find it that the no. 4 does most jobs quite nicely, FOR ME.
Definitely mech hanger. Even went through a period of having a spare rear mech in the pack when I seemed to be smashing them at an alarming rate.
Don't really get to do big all-dayers much anymore so usually ditch the pack and just have a multi-tool, co2, and chain links in the back pocket.
topeak multitool (with built-in chain splitter)
water proof camera
monkey wrench (for bashing stuff)
one of these...
btw, what is this about 20p pieces and HT11 pre-loads?
Don't usually carry a shock pump.
Only one spare tube in case of tubeless failure (but backed up with duck tape wrapped around pump, a patch kit and a tubeless anchovy set)
Always carry a spare hanger - I've seen loads of people snap them
Always carry ID, health card and credit card.
I don't have a 20p piece, so the two times I've had to preload HTII cranks I've used a small rock...
Everything else you can do with a rock.
@HansRey - is that a modded Oyster card? Neat.
on-one cheap multitool with chain tool on it
2 26" presta tubes
puncture repair kit
a few 20cm zip ties
tiny specialized mini pump (might go back to my blackburn one, as the specialized one is hard work for any tyre bigger than about 2")
a metre or so of gaffer tape
spare, part used, brake pads + spring + pin
Think I have it covered.
timb34, a 20p will undo a HT2 preload washer so you can remove the chainset out in the field. Handy if the chain is jammed in the gap below.
