- Want to ditch the pack for good, recommend me a back-pocket "organiser".
It can hold:
* small pump
* tube, levers
* trail tool, select spares (brake pads, chain links)
* gel or 2
* lightweight jacket such as a Paclite or roadie shell
I run hot on a bike so prefer back unencumbered if poss. I’ll move up to a pack if I need to carry spare layers. The bag goes straight in the pack so no repacking needed.Posted 4 years ago
Thanks all for the wealth of suggestions – there are several “goers” amongst them. I actually spotted the thread about “Beerbabe” last night and sent her a message. The tool wallet thing looks really good although a trifle large for a jersey pocket. I sent her a message and it seems as though she is working on something! I’ll keep you all updated as am interested to see what she comes up with.Posted 4 years agoBeerbabeMember
Following email from Moki & comments from Vortexreacing, I’ve made this & added it to the website:Posted 4 years ago
Another vote for the rapha essentials case. That holds:
Co2 inflator and cartridges
Spare brake pads
In the opposite pocket I have a mini pump and a tube and maybe a bar or gel etc, middle pocket has arms warmers and or gillet depending on conditions. Works well for me!Posted 4 years ago
This is the kind of thing I want! That was certainly quick.Posted 4 years agorikleggeSubscriber
Just for reference- sports pursuit website have the lezyne organiser thing for £18: http://www.sportpursuit.com/sales/lezyne-collection/smart-wallet-loaded-blackPosted 4 years agoswanny853Member
Just to chuck another suggestion on, late or not. Alpkit mission packs work for me- http://www.alpkit.com/shop/cart.php?target=product&product_id=16555&category_id=250
Smallest one makes a good pouch for puncture related junk, emergency co2 spare bits of chain, etc. Stick it in the next size up with a mini pump, tool, anything else you fancy, fits a jersey pocket nicely.Posted 4 years agofatharrywhiteMember
I have both of these and they are both quite handy. The bontrager might be better suited to road bike thoughPosted 4 years agogarage-dwellerSubscriber
Seat pack. I have a cube one that’s ok in the filth and I wrap the more sensitive innards. I also had one of those topeak ones but found the shape a little awkward/narrow for mtb tubes. Fine for the road bike though.
Couldn’t care less about the pack getting filthy and wet on a ride. It only gets opened every half dozen rides. I get more worried about cow poo getting splattered on my water bottle!!!Posted 4 years agothebrowndogMember
What about a fuel tank that attaches to the stem/top tube. This is large Topeak jobbie for around £30 but there are heaps of styles. Ive got one for bikepacking but it’s now a permanent fixture as its a lot more convenient than a saddle pack and doesn’t get covered in mud. Its big enough for a big volume tube, multitool, 2x CO2 canisters, phone, keys and a few other bits.

Little resealable poly bags. Compress tube/tubes pop in, squeeze out air and seal.
Money and phone in the same.
Pump and jacket/gilet in centre pocket.
29er tubes are big, so I use one of those funky velcro straps to attach a tube and levers permanently to the seat post. Leaves plenty of pocket space.Posted 4 years ago
