What is in your bicycle tool bag?

I was fixing a bike at home and thought somebody out there would be interested in seeing what I carry in my bicycle repair tool bag. At the Flying Pigeon LA shop I have a full assortment of tools but out on the road I have found my own idiosyncratic collection of stuff to carry along just in case of a mechanical breakdown.

Any questions? info@flyingpigeon-la.com

    I carry most of what you do, plus:
    Denim material for tyre booting
    Chain links, both 3/32 and 1/8
    14mm and 15mm socket wrench for crank bolts
    15mm open end for pedals and axles, longer than your pnut butter wrench
    dog bone wrench
    key for slow-release skewer
    screw-on emergency cable barrel end
    new tube
    first aid kit, alcohol wipes, aspirin
    spare AA battery
    spare 18650 battery
    extra headlight
    extra tail light
    bungee cord
    moist towelettes
    rag

    I also carry a Y-socket tool, and instead of a bargain basement 4″ adjustable wrench, I’ve got a channel-lock 6″. It probably weighs about the same amount, since the channel-lock is thinner, being made of sterner stuff, and it’s a lot less frustrating!

    25mm 700c Tube
    Patch Kit
    Topek Pocket Rocket(eh, light and small but takes forever. Need to invest in C02/pump combo0
    Park tool levers
    Kong 6 bit tool(eh, again, need to invest in better multi tool)
    Front/Back spare Chinese rubber strap lights.(incredibly cheap but are terrible)

    Everything except the hand pump is tied together with a women’s hair tie in a ziploc bag. Easy to transition between bags.
