I want to get out on my new bike (giant defy advanced). I am curious as a new rider, what should I carry along with me and what should I carry it in.
I have seen all manner of kits for flat repair, bit not sure if I should go tubes, or flat kits , or pumps , or gas inflators...you get the picture.
I have seen bags that go under the seat, bags that go on the handle bars, and bags that go in the frame....many choices
Does anyone have any input on a set up to start with.
I will be doing 2-4 hour rides and trying to work my fitness level enough to do some of the passes here. Most of the passes are in excess of 4k foot climbs.
And what about tools? Should I be carrying some sort of multi tool?
