Tool pouch?

Postby JessicaAlba » Tue Sep 10, 2013 8:05 pm

So I have moved away from the traditional under saddle tool bag and onto a tool tube, taking up residence in one of my bidon cages.

Coming into summer, I am probably going to want that bidon cage back...well, for an extra bidon. I want to stay away from the saddle bag, if possible. A recently-visiting friend from across the ditch had a SRAM pouch, which housed a spare, CO2/adaptor and a couple of tools. Not huge in size and perfect to fit in a jersey pocket. Just the ticket.

I have since searched high and low, but so far cannot find anything like it. Anyone know where I might find something similar??

Bontrager make a similar little pouch.

I tried it but I found that I didn't like only having one tube and only one CO2

^ That's the one...except I'm pretty sure ol' mate had a tube tucked in there as well...

I guess it could be made to stretch...?

Was it a red draw-string bag?

Erm...maybe.... If I can manage to squeeze a tube, couple of CO2 canisters, tyre levers and Alan keys into the space some Big Red once stuffed his crown jewels, then yes, I guess that could be ideal.

That looks great!

Wouldn't need the cage though and I might even get hold of a CO2 "cross", for more room in the tool pouch.

Good stuff! :)

Can you buy cage and bag separately??

That'd be cool...

Yes, in the Related Accessories section at the bottom right of the page you can buy any of the items separately.

Wow, these things are everywhere!

Obviously could not see the forest for the trees, could I.

I like that Essentials Case too. Looks to be just the right size for a jersey pocket. And I am sorry, but I first read the other one as "Dumspac", lol.

Looks like it's going to be more about researching than searching for the next few days...thanks guys for all the input, there are some great options here.

EDIT: I see there is a Team Sky version of the Rapha case...looks very cool http://www.rapha.cc/team-sky-essentials-case

I already do the zip bag, for my phone, but now looking for something a little more durable and stylish. I can't imagine even the venerable Glad Bag lasting too long, packed with spare, levers, tools and gas all in one...

Plus, its my birthday soon and I wish to treat myself :)

There is something about having hard & sharp objects in close proximity to my Kidneys that i just dont like. I use the tool canister in the Biddon cage trick and just fill up my water bottle when needed.

Rebilda, I'm of the same opinion. After my freakin' pump jumped out of my pocket TWICE on last Saturday's ride, I'm feeling that something needs to be done, but things near kidneys is a bad idea, always. I actually put my phone on the side pocket because if is smashes I don't want the bits near my spine :shock:

BTW, you're off your tits high as a kite if spending 70 bucks for something many people use a ziplock bag for seems like a good idea. Cheaper to pay your friends to carry your tools for you... I'm SURE that a 70 dollar doodad like that is a violation of The Rules.

Sad, but my first associative though on seeing "Tool pouch" was "Holden Commodore".

I think the cars are getting to me. :(

Happy Birthday :mrgreen:

Make your own bag http://www.momtastic.com/diy/113362-diy ... dwich-bag/ customise a bit with a cloth ribbon to keep it rolled up and compact and spend the extra on a nice big steak, helps you ride faster after digestion :D

I know it says sandwich bag but essentially the same :roll: , and if you have an old wetsuit you could even make a neoprene version :idea: :twisted:
