- Roadie Tools?
On big rides I carry two tubes, Tyre levers, split link and a multi tool. Tbh that’s all that’s needed. Smaller rides I leave the multi tool at home. I make sure the bike is tip top before I leave and that’s it really. There’s not a lot to go wrong on a road bike and they take a lot less of a battering compared to there MTB cousins.Posted 5 years agodruidhMember
The other thing is that if something catastrophic goes wrong, you are going to be more easily “rescued” on a road than in the middle of some mountains.
Having said that, a lot of trail centre riders also seem to manage to pack a whole workshops worth of spares with them.Posted 5 years agoMulletus MaximusMember
As above ^^^
Co2, Tube, tyre lever and small multitool is all you really need. Bike is regularly maintained and have never needed to use multitool and had my first puncture today for over a year and that wad only because there was no call for pot hole in front of me.Posted 5 years agosmartaySubscriber
When i take the mtb out i pack the kitchen sink in the form of tools and spares etc, but when i see roadies out they appear to carry absolutely nothing in the way of spares or tools.
Now owning a road bike as well I am the only one with aback pack!!
