You can do some pretty cool things with some chopped up MTB tubes and a tube of shoe goo. Carry spare batteries for one...

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.


There was time when I would spend $70 just to get off my tits and high as a kite...but the euphoria was temporary and the come down was never very pleasant.

Now I choose to spend MY money on things of my own choosing, which bring me a different kind of euphoria...even if it is a small leather cycle tool pouch. But thanks anyway for your financial advice.

Having said that, I must mention I had not considered the possible danger to various vital organs with wearing tools so close...

We are a special breed , the cashed up road rider. Kit is pricey but that is just crazy lol if you wanted to buy the Rapha bag I reckon you could get a custom made bag.... But I think smartphones with data are too exxy too (avowed tightwad).

I like the MTb tube idea. Found a few online. Pretty schmick. Sounds like a plan. A cheap plan.

Having seen the result of landing on a fairly small multitool in a jersey pocket (MTB stack, handspan size black and blue patch dead centre on the spine) I carry nothing harder than a tube in my pockets.

Debatable. No one was impressed by my scar tissue from one stack at all. Only recent comment was by Steve Hogg of all people. I am not sure I want to impress someone who has been dealing with riders for 20 years with my scars. Makes me wonder if it was a bigger deal than I thought? :roll:
