As far back as I can remember, every bike I've ever owned has had a saddle bag on it, with just a few basic things, such as spare tube, tire levers, etc. Where do you store these items while cruising? Especially as you get to areas where theft is more common?
I just had my entire bike stripped in Miami
Beach. Took my pump, and saddle bag with tools, tube, etc. As annoyed as I am, I know it's partially my own fault for locking it up at the same spot, too long, and too often, even though I thought it was a safer area, due to it being on a dead end, in a residential area.
The alternative, I guess is to just throw all that stuff in my back pack, but I'm so absent minded, that I fear being miles from home,with a flat, and the spare tube and tools sitting back on the boat.
Any ideas or suggestions?
I guess for one, even thought it's overpriced, I could get the Dahon seat post pump.
