I was looking at the bikes in the fashion post and noticed an array of setups. One bike had a pair of panniers. The next was stripped, not even a water bottle. A few in between.
What do you carry on your bike for a typical local ride? how do you carry it?
So far I set up a tail bag with a park bike tool, spare tube, and patch kit. Two water bottles, and a small air pump (which I doubt I could get enough air into a tube with to continue riding, or at least my workout would be done for the day!). I have a handlebar bag for my keys, etc. and a cheap cable lock.
