hi everyone -
so, company is moving further away which is a good thing cause 2.5 mile commute isn't as much fun as an 8 mile one. however LA streets sucks and have plenty of crappy pot holes. with that said, the first ride i took to the new office, i end up blowing out my rear tire on a pot hole (for those of you who do live on the west side of LA, the one pot hole in question is between culver and braddock on centinela - so um. . be warned). think it was a pinch flat or something. what sucks about the whole thing is that i wasn't prepared for this so instead of just being able to replace the tube and be on my way, i had to wait for someone to get me to take me to a bike store to get it done. so question is. . what are the essentials that you would carry with you on a daily commute?
so what i have now is a spare tube, co2 tank (and an inflator). i have a small hand pump that i will be tossing into my bag from here on out. but more or less i'm looking for what you folks carry for a daily commute so i can complete my shopping list so i don't end up in this stupid situation again.
