Off to Whistler on Saturday. The thing is that I’ve become used to not wearing a pack these days and I don’t really want to start again. However, it’s a long walk down to the village.
Any suggestions how to carry tubes, pump etc?Posted 7 years ago
Fanny pack.Posted 7 years ago
Hmmmm thought about that, but it might not fit with my body armour too well.Posted 7 years ago
Saddlebag?Posted 7 years ago
I have a SDG saddle/seatpost, so no rails.Posted 7 years ago
Saw a few guys at the Mega this year had tubes duct-taped to the downtube. Assume they carry a CO2 thingy in a pocket.Posted 7 years ago
An owner/guide of a company we’ve been away with told me about a guest that they had stopping with them.
He said he couldn’t carry his lunch that they had proved for him as he didn’t want to wear a backpack on account of it might give him a sweaty back.
“no problem” said the guide/owner i’ll sort it for you.
Guide/owner then went into the garage and duck taped the lunch to the guests toptube.
The guest never mentioned it again and used a backpack for the rest of the holiday. 😆Posted 7 years ago
Cool story 😀
I don’t need to carry lunch.Posted 7 years ago
Having just spent 4 days in NZ shuttling/riding with FF and a pack on, it’s not that bad. You can also carry water & food!!
Either that or pay your mates to carry your stuff.Posted 7 years ago
It’s a pack or walk of shame. Roll the dice…Posted 7 years ago
When I used to go to the Park on a regular basis (2007….) I wore TLD shorts that had pretty huge pockets. Big enough to stick a mini pump, tube, leaverz and a set of allen keys without any bother. These days when I get around to going, I just wear a pack. It’s only a mild pain to take off / on when using the lifts. Never notice it riding, and mentioned you’ve got food / drink to hand too. Whistler Mountain if pretty big if you ride from the top of it.Posted 7 years ago
What are leaverz? Particularly gnar levers?Posted 7 years ago
Gaffer tape your pump to your seatpost, and a tube under the top tube somewhere. Problem solved!Posted 7 years ago

There should be a small block that on the saddle that a Topeak Aero Wedge Bag will slide onto. I have one of these and it’s a good secure fit.Posted 7 years ago
Yeah just wear a bag, the walk down is crap! Its a mistake you only make once. That said a few times I just stuffed everything in my pockets but its just comfier and easier to use a bag.Posted 7 years ago
Carry the pack: I was the ‘mule’ in whistler for our group as I don’t like riding without spares: others were happy to use spare gear cables/tubes when needed. It meant we carried on riding. You’re using the lifts, it’s not really an issue. I wore my camelback with pressure suit & leatt neck brace.Posted 7 years ago
Singlespeed – brilliant. And hope all’s well with you two.Posted 7 years ago

Reckon I would do that once, next day no spares? Catch you back for dinner.Posted 7 years ago
I have a Dakine Nomad pack, which is 18L, so maybe a smaller one would be better.
Any recommendations?Posted 7 years ago
