Sounding like the Capital One commercial, just like to know if riders carry anything unsual in their pack. I was just cleaning mine out and it was all the usual suspects: pump,repair kit, tube, zip ties, two power bars, and some money.

..... couple condoms ......
For those just such occasions when you run into a "trail bunny" and just HAVE to get it on, right?

Or is there some reason like fixing something on your BIKE that these come in handy?

As for mine - allen keys 2.5 - 6 mm, tire pressure gauge, presta/schrader adaptor, Wrench Force multi tool with levers, zip ties, shock pump, first aid kit, some money and eload. Got a spare tube hanging off the back of my Lobo and the tube pump is on the frame. Sometimes my digicam is in there, too. Oh i'm soooooo glad I got this thing!!!!!!!!

Sometimes a sheep might run across the trail or something... But the KY works as good chain lube! :D Nah, Just seeing who's payin' attention.

OK although this is a legit question that helps a lot of newer riders out as do the dozens of other frequently asked questions, doesn't everyone think it;s time for a seperate forum to hold these sort of FAQ's so it's doesn't get asked again and again and is easily referenced.

I'll start with a few I've seen a good many times.......

What Tools do you carry?
What's in your camelback?
How do you clean your camelback / resevoir?
What Med Kit do you carry / What do you carry in your Med Kit?
Is it possible to use a SRAM Powerlink on Shimano chains?
How do you fix a broken chain?
Any advice on installing a Fork?

That's just a couple and they are more, but it gets the ball rolling.

Oh yeh and what do I carry in my CB M.U.L.E? Well I'l list what I take if it's a long ride and then it gets paired down for shorter stuff.
-3 litres of water
-TOPEAK Turbo Morph pump
-Shock Pump
-Cell Phone
-Small fold up rain jacket
-Swizz army knife
-Cable ties, different lengths and sizes
-Med Kit; plasters, elastic bandages, gauze, cooton wool, antihistamine, pain killers, TCP cream, rollaids, fresh nap wipes.
-Food ; bananas, oatmeal cookies, cereal bars, GU,
-TP

What size is that thing if that is all you can fit in your camelback.
I'll leave out comments about the size of your saddle.

I carry 2 panty liners in my first aid kit. My wife who is a nurse suggested them as a good cover for a large wound. I've never used them to cover a wound but had to replace them twice.
A side from the first aid kit I carry , tube, water, Crank Bros mulitool , pump and CO2. cell phone and GPS. I figure if I fell and can't get up it would be handy to tell them where I am.
15' of 1/4" nylon rope and small roll of duct tape. Have used them all

At first I thought, wft, but then I checked your profile. Houston. It all makes sense, in fact that seems like a very rational load for Texas.

Shoot, a feller could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.
