How about if I shave my face and wear $100 bibs? Am I merely a frivolous cyclist?

Not me. I can tell dumb jokes for a full hour while riding.

Left jersey pocket - Phone
Center jersey pocket - Tube and tools pack
Right jersey pocket - Ziplock bag with ID, credit card, a few $, and a face mask. If I'm riding from my car, I pull the remote off the keyring and stick it in this pocket. If I'm carrying energy gels, they go here, too.

Those little seat bags may be too small for cell keys and wallet.
Now, I am thinking of a $7 frame corner bag.

I use a Smartish iPhone wallet. I.D., credit card and medical card go in the wallet and the phone goes in the right back pocket. I have a single house key that goes in my left pocket. Did 1200 miles over 3 weeks in Wisconsin and Michigan with that arrangement.

I have a separate wallet I use as a cycling wallet. It's just a single fold nylon wallet with two clear windows which I used to hold my military ID back 30 years ago. I just carry my driver's license, debit card, some cash, copy of my insurance card and an emergency information card in it. Just the bare necessities so I don't have to carry my bulky regular wallet.

You ride with a phone in your back pocket?
Does it hit the seat? are you sitting on it?

Not with cycling jerseys, they sit high and don't sag below the waistline.
