- Why don’t we install ALL top caps like this??
I love the idea and if all forks came with a thread as standard I would definitely buy into it….
As they don’t, it’s just too much hassle for me personally. I always wear a pack on longer rides or just throw a multitool into a pocket for the short ones.
Each to their own though, there is no “right” to this argument. Choice is a good thing over all.👍Posted 8 months agotrail_ratMember
The bit i like about all this get rid of the pack that my mates have adopted with the one up tool and all that jazz is there is always a call at the start of a long ride …. Can someone with a bag take my jacket and this food, whos got a map , whos got a first aid kit.
Now while we may only take a comunial oh shit kit between us – clearly theres no intention of spreading the load when they show up hahaPosted 8 months agocultsdaveMember
Really struggling to see the hate in this. If you want to ride with a pack crack on no one is stopping you.
If you prefer to not ride with a pack here is a solution to carrying a multi tool.
I have the one up EDC there is a tube strapped to my bike and the pump lives there all the time. Means that all I have to grab is the water bottle and away I go. I used to take a pack and still do on longer rides where you need more food jackets etc, but as the majority of my rides are sub 2 hours there is no need.
At the end of the day I prefer riding without a pack bouncing around all over the place, it just feels better. Others disagree hence why they are happy with their bags, end of.Posted 8 months agobigyinnMember
To be honest, most trailcentres don’t require you carry much other than water and a pump, and possibly a multitool because you’re never that far away from your car or the cenrte.
However 99% of the riding I do is not in a trailcentre, so pretty much everything I might need goes in the camelbak. I’d like to see how you carry 3l of water without a camelbak or similar.
Anyways, I like my Camelbak and others like festooning their bikes with overpriced tools shoved into tight orifices. Its a free country.Posted 8 months ago
