Just a thought... What are the normal essential tools that one shld bring during a ride??

For me, ID, credit card, cash (enough for taking a cab back), phone.... Laughing


but i reckoned a spare tools, patch, pump and probably a simple all-in-1 tool (but not too sure how to use).

Do anyone bring the "reckoned tools"??

the minimum i bring is a multi tool, such as a Topeak Mini 9. As for spare tubes/tire levers/pump, I only bring it if I know I will absolutely need it, such as overseas or night rides. Otherwise, if you get a puncture, just take a bus/mrt/taxi to get home.

Regards,
Steve

Patch kit - never use before
Multi tool - rarely use as well
Pump - once a while
Handphone, mp3 player and money - cannot do without
Defensive riding attitude - a must so that can no need to use any tools

I always believe in having the tools with me and don't need to use them rather then need them but don't have them. So the tools in my seat pouch are :

1) Spanners for pedals, seat post, head tube and hubs.
2) Odd sizes multi-tool spanners for smaller bolts as in brakes.
3) Allen wrenches for all allen capscrews sizes on my bike.
4) Chain breaker.
5) Spokes wrench.
6) Glueless patch kits (like handyplast).
7) Phillips and flat head screwdriver
Cool Tyre irons
9) Pliers.
10) Spare inner tube
11) Air pump (on bicycle frame)
12) Light weight poncho.
13) Face towels (one for face and one for cleaning up after repairs)
14) Tissue papers (in case pang sai)
15) Seat rain cover.

I think that's about all.

For emergency chain repair get a "MissingLink" or some called it "MagicLink". It is just a removable single piece of chain link. Make sure get the correct size for your chain.

Small light rain jacket you may find it at Daiso.
