    I carry a Hyrdation Pack (2 liters of water)
    With a multi tool (Leatherman) and a Bike specific multi tool with all the hex wrenches and stuff I need. My wallet/cell phone and sometimes camera. I also carry a patch kit and a pump now.. (Pumps a bit big, I need to invest in a smaller one.) And When I have them, an extra tube.

    the remnants of about 20 years of living the wrong way...

    although 30lbs of it has majically disappeared in the last month...

    strictly due to me peddling crack... my crack that is..

    Allen wrenches (4,5,6,8mm combo wrench) and a 8,10,12mm combo wrench (multi-tool is heavy) , a short 15mm wrench for my SS axle nuts, Camelbak, a little food, iPhone (camera and music in one), extra tube, c02, patch kit, tire levers.

    I really like to carry the LEAST amount of stuff possible - just enough to survive on. I think it's funny that we pay so much attention to bike weight and then add 10lbs. of crap in our hydration packs!

    Ed, that's because you have a Jamis. It reminds me of the old joke about why IH pickups had oversized beds (to carry all the spare parts of course ).

    Maybe you could really use one of these:

    So, everybody on the trail comments about how prepared I am. Except for the trail patrol. And I'm all about spreading the love, so I've helped other people out just as often as I've helped myself out.

    I was a boyscout... and I'm a lifeguard.

    I must say my friend, you got me beat by far.

    I forgot to add that sometimes I have a mini first aid kit, includes stuff for stings and bites, and closure kits and etc.

    Too bad I have a desert Eagle and a Ruger 44. =P My ego is so large on the streets that I don't wear a vest, as no bullets can mortally harm me, and even if one does. I got brotha's dawg!

    I used my pack yesterday b/c I actually drove to the trails. I thought it felt heavy...so I weighed it. 7lbs 15oz. I must be getting old and weak or something.

    Medium sized Swiss Army knife, generic bike specific multi tool with 4,5,6,8mm hex wrenches, a mini cresent wrench, and a chain breaker that I picked up at Interbike years ago, a patch kit with some additional small parts (or spare tube), a compact pump, a cell phone, my Road ID, three darts for warding off curious widelife, and a couple bags of Roks, all stuffed into a 70oz Camelbak. It may seem like overkill, but over the years I've added tools/parts after I've found myself needing them when I didn't have them.
    Just your average 'high-functioning' lunatic, capable of passing as 'normal' for short periods of time.....

    Today: petit.jpg Saranac Black and Tan.JPG

    Oh, and this stuff. 70oz bladder in my EMS house brand pack. Leyzine multi tool, Micro Mini Leatherman, spare tube, glueless patches, two co2 carts and inflater, ancient but kick ass Blackburn pump, Rock Shox shock pump. Little baggy with a spare hanger for each of my bikes, a couple m5 and m6 bolts, a dozen 8" zip ties, a couple feet of duct tape, a spare set of brake pads, a couple rotor and chainring bolts. P&S camera, with mini Gorilla-pod tripod. Phone, keys, wallet.

    This is my average load, unless I'm going longer. If shorter, it's usually just a bottle on the bike or in the jersey, with a co2, multi tool, phone and keys.
    They were very tasty, BTW.
    I believe the clouds in my coffee more than the weatherman on t.v.

    Have you really needed to replace a rotor/CR bolt on the trail?

    Camelback MULE with tools, CO2 inflator, 2 tubes, some kind of gorp, more water than i need. i usually carry more of everything than I need in case i come across someone broken down...
    i got stuck once out in the middle of nowhere with a really long walk back- it might be lighter to travel without, but it's not worth it when you need it...

    Not that I mountain bike anymore or anything, but...

    -(1) Camelback minus the bladder (overtaken by mold & mildew from owner neglect)
    -(1) 20oz bottle of blue Powerade
    -(1) 20oz bottle of water
    -(2) Small packs of cashews
    -(1) bike specific multi-tool
    -(1) Leatherman mini multi-tool
    -(2) Tire pry bars
    -(1) Pump
    -(1) Spare tube
    -(1) Tube patch kit
    -(1) Cell phone

    I don't bother with a wallet because I know I'm not buying anything on the trail & I have all the important information in my wallet memorized (ID number, credit card & debit card numbers, & my insurance information). If I'm feeling especially bold, I'll sacrifice the Powerade for a small roll of gauze & gauge tape.
    just a n00b with an ego
