|Where do you keep your stuff (spare tube/tyre, levers, etc etc) when you ride?
In a saddle bag, one of your jersey pockets, a converted drink bottle (top cut off and stuff stuffed in!) or somewhere else that I can't mention as this is a moderated board!

|I noticed recently that I'm getting some rub on my shorts and that just won't do...so I'm on the hunt for a sleeker saddle bag. Here's what goes in though |
2 tire irons
couple of patches and glue
wallet (I carry a very thin wallet)
couple of allen keys
In the jersey pockets go cell phone and fig newtons.

|In my saddle bag I also keep 2 16g co2 cartridges and a co2 chuck.|

|1 tube, 1 co2 cart. tire levers and spare Connex link in my jersey pocket. Used to carry alot of junk but in 20+ years of cycling I've honestly never needed it. Also, a cell phone with the ringer turned off.|

|I've got my crap down to a manageable level -
- tool, tube, tire levers, money in center pocket
- CO2 inflator and 3 cartridges, picture ID, and house keys in right pocket
- food (Poptarts) in the left. Arm warmers and cleat covers go there too...

|I carry tools, a few spare parts and a tube in my saddle bag. Sometimes I carry a CO2 inflater with 3 cartridges, other times a frame-fit pump. In my pockets I carry ID, money, cleat covers, gel and energy bars.|

|Ultra-minimalist: tube repair, 1 tire iron, 3 hex keys and a minipump wrapped together and tied under the seat.
For races I untie the pack and put in the waterbottle with a spare tube.
For extreme distances I put the alian in my pocket.

|recently i've been carrying a very small seatpack and a few other items in jersey pockets, on rides <60 miles.
1 tire tool
3 co2 cartridges
meds, id, etc.
garage opener or car key
of course without the huge camelbak and cavernous carradice bag, this feels really liberating.

|On my commute rides, I use a seatpost rack and a rack trunk to carry all my stuff - not only spare tubes, tire lever, cell phone, etc., but clean shorts and un-d-shirt for the ride home (or the dirties from that morning), "breakfast", a few papers for work, wallet, car keys, garage door opener, locker key, etc.
On training rides, I just use an under seat bag for tubes, lever, multi-tool, spare lenses, and cell phone.
Frame pump is mounted at all times.

|Hard things like CO2 carts and inflator, minitool, cell phone, etc. in a small seatbag. I don't like the thought of wiping out with that stuff jabbing me in the back (especially the minitool, ouch!). I also think the cell phone (turned OFF) is better protected in the seat bag. Soft stuff like tube, patch kit, map, food, in my jersey pocket. Pump on the frame.|| |
