Suggestions on where to stow your crap?
Wedge bag under the saddle? Bum bag? (fanny pack to the non-Brits I think)

If I'm on a long non-commute ride, **** goes in my jersey or bag, if carrying one. Else, all in the pockets for my regular commute/utility runs.

..And I keep my krypto key on a wrist coil (either actually on my wrist or around my elbow if the key's buggin me). Super fast to lock and unlock. It's always only a couple inches away from your palm. Can't get much easier than that!

Ha, ha, ha. I was just thinking the same thing. I saw this thread start the other day and today I saw it had hit three pages. Amazing.

I have been thinking (only thinking) about starting a thread in the road cycling forum about removing tight fitting jerseys. I'll continue to rely on what I learned about shirt removal as a three year old.

Do you need a pen to get back in your house?

I need to carry a magnetic card, garage remote, and apartment key. If I'm on a fitness ride, I'm wearing my lycra shorts, no pockets, and a wicking tee, no pockets. I don't have any jerseys or bike bags, so there.

That said, my keychain has a clip that lets me attach my keys to my saddle rails with the greatest of ease, so I just do that.

apartment keys clipped onto belt loop inside back pocket. lock keys on my arm. easier access to lock my bike up and i dont have to sit on an excessively large pile of keys, or have to worry about my lock keys if i dont have my bike.

You don't wanna know...

Actually, I have a nice bike path in my backyard which lets me ride all day without worrying straying out of walking distance, so I just do my usual bike check before leaving, and I just don't worry about it too much after that. If I flat, I flat. I can walk for hours without complaint. I know I should get a little saddle bag or something, but I haven't.

If I'm out in the city, keys in my pocket, tools/spares in my backpack.

When taking a bite of a big fat hot dog, do you concentrate on chewing on the left or right side of your mouth?

Seriously? This thread has 3 pages? It's just as bad as the sock thread from the road forum or the pant roll thread.

getting a waist pack tonight! hopefully it's big enough for a mini but it will definitely hold minitool, wallet, cell, crappy disposable mp3 player, and so on.

I've worn a waist pack while riding a few times, but I feel pretty silly about it. When I get to wherever I'm going and lock the bike up, the pack comes off and I carry it in my hand or under my arm (like you would with a newspaper on your way in from the front lawn - not slung over my shoulder like a purse).
