Some call my pack the suitcase, but just occasionally it saves someone's ride if not my own, so it's worth it.

What do I carry on the Trail?

In my Camelback: spare tube(wrapped inside and old sock to protect it), CO2 filler, 2 cartridges, small mountain pump, park Allens, Blackburn chaintool, short length of chain, 2 Sram chain links, Ibuprophin, dollar bills (to use as a tire boot), 2 GU's, spare allenbolts, rear der hanger, Boy Scout bandana,( to use as bandage, ear cover, sweatband, etc), a couple bandaids, 2 plastic tire tools, presta/schraeder adapter.
On long rides/races i add a seatpack with a 2nd tube, money. Works for me! I've helped "bail out" numerous people especially with the chaintool and Sram links.

Why dollar bills as tire boots. Why not just carry some duck tape. It has more uses.
Carry both. Ever try to tear a dollar bill? They're tough. Also, if you need to buy a tube from someone, you'll do better with cash than duct tape.

WOW!

I thought I was the only one to carry all that stuff. I carry most of what Cdale blue has in his list. All of it is my camel back. I've got the camelbak M.U.L.E. My multi tool is a Topeak Alien II 26. I don't carry the small adjustable wrench although I think I may through on in there for my out of town rides. I use CO2 cartridges in lieu of a hand pump. My compass is a Silva (426 guide). A shock pump too is in there for those on the trails suspension adjustments if needed.

What's in your med kit? I've got the essentials-band-aids, gause, latex gloves, tylenol, ibuprofin plus a small squirt bottle of peroxide and Krazy glue.

My riding buddies used to make fun of me for carrying all that stuff until we needed the 1st aid kit or when I've been able to make more on-trail bike repairs than I care to remember. Most of them are broken chains and taco-ed wheels. I'll go ahead and say that riding around my local trails, 90% of my gear is pretty unecessary. The trails around me are in small pockets of green belts so a short walk is only necessary to get back to a road. If i leave town to ride then I feel good I've got extra stuff in the pack plus I'll throw in a topo of our destination riding area.

I see you and I as well as few others carry alot of stuff. I have a few questions.

1: Coffee Filters are for?
2: 550 paracord?
3: 12x16 piece of tin foil? Is the foil for taking slop out of a pivot?

I would like to add to these to the "got it covered list".

The pulley's and allens for the Rear Der. I have them wrapped in Metal Tape along
with the other goodies in a bag.

A tire gauge.

My never used on the trail,but alway's have,Morningstar "Drumstick" made out
of AL. The end of the handle can be used as a tire lever. It can True you're Rotor
for those who dont know. Very Light. I also have a Quick Stick which I rap the handle
in duct tape.

1 roll of that White Sport's wrap Tape

The cool tool,that first aid kit,the whistle,the blanket{it works},ID is a must.
Money is a must,TP and Zips. I pert near have everything. Yes,they make fun of me.:skep: Peace,I'm out.

1. coffee filtres can be used as tp or tinder, Tissue paper, or make coffee or prefiltrer for removing particles in water.
2. para cord is great for tying anything and can be split for thread or more fishing line.3.Tin foil is very useful, considering how compact it is. Can be used to cook fish, boil water.
