Addiction 2021.1

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

It's been in service for about 6 years. Holding up well. Started out on the Allez, then moved over to the Fuji CX which has been my gravel/bad weather/commuter. That wide Velcro strap holds the bag tight against the seat rails, very secure.

I can’t believe that you guys only carry one tube. I only carry one on my bike with tubeless but every other bike gets two. Over the last couple hundred thousand miles, there have been many times that I’ve needed two on a ride because of two flats or found that one I was carrying was defective.

Note that I also carry a peel/stick patch kit. If for some reason I am on a solo ride and get two flats I would use the patch.

Similarly I have one C02 cartridge but have a mini pump as a backup.

Ditto on the patch kit.

On a longer ride I'd be more inclined to get rid of the CO2 and replace it with another tube plus mini-pump in my jersey. I've tried the datlas method of everything in jersey pocket but didn't really like it - I don't notice having a pump on my back though.

Defective tubes are a bit of a concern of mine since I'm not terribly flat-prone and they just live in the saddle bag. I do my best to wrap them in a nitrile glove or something to prevent metal-on-rubber abrasion but I'm not terribly sure how effective that is.

Yeah, even with tubeless, I carry one tube and a patch kit. I'd love to feel the thrill of going without all of the flat gear, but I just know that that would bite me in the ass sooner rather than later.

Best bet is to put tubes in a heavy-duty Ziplock freezer bag or equivalent.

I’ve had more trouble with patch kits than tubes.

BITD, I used to patch tubes all the time, at home and on rides, and they'd last for years, sometimes with 3 or 4 patches. Now, I can't get patches to work at all. Is it me or has something else changed?

Sometimes, the bike I ride to the bike shop does not have a repair kit.
