    Tool Kits for H20 Cage

    I've heard that there are tool kits on the market that fit into one's water bottle cage. That appeals to me. Any idea where I might be able to buy one?

    This is the only one I could find: http://cgi.ebay.com/Bicycle-Tool-Kit...QQcmdZViewItem

    My only problem with this idea is that it takes away valuable space for water...which may not be an issue if your just commuting to work and need a place to carry tools.

    There use to one for your cell phone too.

    I have a pump on muy frame and I only carry a small multi-tool (smaller than the palm of my hand), a set of nested plastic tire spoons, a couple tubes and a cell phone. These bits ride in one of my panniers. I'm lugging panniers loaded with laptop, work clothes, lunch etc anyway so my tools are about 5% of what I haul.

    If you really need no luggage, just get one of those little seatpost bags that the roadies use. That will easily carry everything you need.

    When the repair is beyond what you can do with a multi-tool, you break out the cell phone. Never happened to me so far.

    Indeed. Good thing my wife isn't car free.

    Don't spend money for something like this! Just use a plastic peanut butter jar (18 oz or so). It fits in the cage and keeps everything dry.

    See this page for pics (a few pics down):

    I keep my multi-tool, spare tubes and CO2 in an under-seat bag. On my MTB and hybrid, I have a hand pump for flats. Been considering a road-morph for the road bike, but don't really need it right now, as I have 20-some inflater cartridges laying around so I just carry several at a time.
