Whatever you carry, just make sure you bring it in with you when you park

Had my emergency wedge pack stolen off my bike when it was locked up outside my apartment (and I live in the suburbs!)

Current kit has:
* 1 spare tire
* Tire repair kit
* Tire levers
* Park multitool (w/ chain breaker)
* Rubber gloves
* CO2 inflator + 2 cartridges

I used to have a couple of extra chain links in my emergency kit too, but I haven't replenished that after my old pack was stolen. I'll just wait until I get a new chain again. I figure at least with the chain tool I can pull out a link and ride in the lowest gear to limp it home.

The rubber gloves were a recent addition after I discovered there is no grease-free way to recover from a front derailment and I have white gloves

On longer rides and my commute I bring my Timbuk2 trunk with me where I have a couple of bucks stowed away (enough for a bus ride home) and I always bring my wallet + cell phone with me in case I need to be rescued (I have at least a couple of people I could guilt into picking me up ).

Haven't had to use any of it yet, but I only have 300 miles on my bike Multitool does come in handy when wrenching on the bike at home though
