I sometimes carry it in a stretchy lycra waist strap thing that I bought at Big W some years ago, looks like this: Image
My latest Morvelo thermal jersey has a large enough zip pocket for one as well.

Apidura top tube bag for me on the road bike. https://www.apidura.com/product/expedit ... tube-pack/ Don't take it on the MTB, peace and quiet ;-)

I have found the same thing - very handy.

Also, how about a Quadlock mount? (just having it on the bars or top tube, rather than in a bag - comes with a waterproof cover). I used to find this useful as my saddlebag only had enough space for spare tube, levers and tool.

Tough little thing that you will be able to hand over to the next few generations of fergy1987s


Thanks for the recommendation baa baa, I have had a couple of nice Revelate top tube bags but each had some feature (too wide / too small / difficult to open zipper...) that annoyed me when riding so with the GST free window closing I ordered one of these Tinder Boxes (in a lovely Olive) and it arrived today, rushed it down to bike shed to introduce it to the bike. Looks very handsome and seems very functional, my large iphone 7+ fits well into the internal pocket with lots of room for other bits and pieces. The accompanying note from Cactus thanked me (!) for being "awesome" and selecting their product so let me thank you for the awesome recommendation.
