XC/DH Camel Bak 3litres of water, Pump, spare tube, patches, electrical tape, multitool (includes chanin breaker), money, phone, sunnies(to stop shit getting in your eyes). Maybe a spare shirt if i know im going to get wet or its cold. Think thats about it.

carrying shite

Josh you have a mechanic aswell !!!!
nice ...

I take Ty along for my rides .. haha

I dont carry shit im very slack .. i dont have a camel bak .. i dont have any tools .. well worthy ones anyway ..

Basically i scam off ty.

But my bike is industructable so nothing brakes that often ... just sometimes i need to change stuff like lever tension or whatever .. multi tool does the trick .. which is either in ty's mule in the shuttle van.

I need to get a camel bak real soon .. and some tools.

camel back, pump, tool kit, patches, mobile, money, ID, map (if im going somewhere new)

i would take my "swiss" army knife, but it would probably break if i opened it (its a cheap imitation version i got for $5!!!)

i take me hydropac, in which gets stuffed a couple of mouthfuls of H2O, the Alien tool (best present ever from the g/friend), mini pump, spare tube, & a few museli bars, cause i'm always hungry.

If i'm feeling realing fit i may take: spare derailures, chain, tyres, chainrings, cranks, BB, spare frame, another set of forks just in case, some lube, another handle bar & a spare helmet. This all fits in2 my backpack............. really it does
