Timbuk2 has a website called What’s In Your Bag, where you post a picture of what you carry in your Timbuk2 bag every day. I thought it might be fun if we post what’s in OUR bags (or what’s on our person) when we go out on unicycle rides. It might be a good opportunity to learn about the various supplies that are carried on one wheel.
So post what you like to bring with you, describe the type of riding you do with this stuff, and don’t forget pictures!
I’ll start. Normally I like to keep it simple and just bring my phone and GoPro. But on days where I know I’ll be out in the woods for more than a couple of hours, this is what’s in my bag:
I’ve thought about making a thread like this for a while, but I make enough as it is! This is great. It would be good to list what your stuff is too, I can’t tell what some of your things are bri. Also, why were you up at 2am taking pictures of your uni gear?
I ride muni and this is what I bring.
Tire patch kit
Steel core tire levers
Pedal wrench (need a lighter weight one)
Allen tool for crank bolts
Toilet paper (just in case…)
cocai… baby powder… for tire changes
Spare car key with info dog tag.
various granola or energy bars
Depending on the ride I might have a compact windbreaker in there too.
Things I SHOULD have in it:
spare tube (for long rides)
Better ID, with blood type, etc.
I wish I could ride with a simple pack like harper
Brilliant!!! I’m going to start bringing some. And I work nights so I usually don’t get to sleep until 3am or later.
As far as my stuff goes, I bring bike tools, tire levers, spare tube, pump, snacks, sunblock, lots of first aid supplies, my go pro and mounts, my wallet, my phone, my GPS watch in case my phone craps out, my wireless head phones, and a knife.
Thanks to this thread I finally updated my pack. I still don’t have a few things I’d like. But I reorganized it, and placed all my low use items into small ziplocks together. I was always worried I would lose my spoke wrenches or other small items and not notice.
Also worth mentioning that I take a large bottle or jug of water in my car with me, and drink from it before and after the ride. Going to also start packing sandwiches to eat on return from longer rides.
Basic quick muni kit as I need a socket to keep those pesky crank nuts tight, those square taper cranks don’t like to stay seated. A spanner to keep those pesky pedal nuts tight. Allen key for seat height, and the all essential android phone for GPS tracking.
