The Things They Carried: What to Bring on Your Ride

This is the minimal item you better carry in every ride, either just commuting or wander around the city. What? So many? Yes, better safe than sorry right?



This is the checklist:
  • A tire lever (two or three)
  • Inner tube
  • Patch kit
  • Cash
  • CO2 and inflator (you don't need that if you decide to carry a handpump)
  • ID/debit card 
  • Duct tape (1 foot wrapped around a small piece of cardboard)
  • Complete multitool (at least must have a chain breaker)
  • Presta-to-Schrader valve adapter
  • Hand pump 
  • A master link or replacement pin for chain repair
  • If you ridden bike with old thru axle, don't forget bring 2 spanner too
Saddle bag

You can add the item to suit your need (like handphone, cyclocomputer, etc). So you better decide how to bring that things in every ride. If you don't wanna cramp you jersey pocket to bring that things, you can consider to buy a saddle bag. Saddle bag is a small bag (though they come in slightly larger sizes, too) that tucks under the back end of your saddle. It’s intended to carry your flat repair items, a few small tools, and maybe emergency money or energy gel. It’s limited in space, so it can really just hold the basics that you’ll need for every ride but don’t want to have to pack each time.

In the end, i will repeat again..
