For longer rides I typically take these items with me:

  1. Multitool. I have a Topeak Alien II which can solve almost any minor mechanical issue that arises. It's probably overkill for most people though.

  2. Spare tube, tire levers, and a mini pump. I use a CO2 inflator, but I also have puncture resistant tires so I'm not constantly using CO2 cartridges.

  3. Lights if you'll be riding at night.

  4. Something to put the tools in. I have a saddle bag, top tube bag, and a frame bag. If I need to see turn by turn directions on my phone, I use my top tube bag (not this exact model), but most of the time I stick with a saddle bag.

    Don't discount how comfortable lycra shorts can be on longer rides. They can be a very good investment.

    To learn about maintenance, Google will honestly be your best bet. Even a general description of the problem (eg, "bike brakes not stopping well") will likely turn up a number of articles and posts on various cycling forums. However, there are some really good Youtube channels out there. These include GCN and GMBN which every Monday show some aspect of bike maintenance. RJ the Bike Guy has a number of very comprehensive videos on relatively obscure bike maintenance topics, but his channel tends to focus on vintage bikes rather than brand new ones.

Funny, I just asked myself the same question today, with a very similar use-case (leaving the bike lights in a locked container on the bike while running).

I was thinking of a small hard-case that would have a metal ring or something so that I could put my U-lock through it. That way it wouldn't need to be locked to the bike when the bike isn't locked.

Haven't looked too hard yet, but lockable hard cases for racks definitely exist. I don't know how they are secured to the rack itself, but you could always take a cable lock to secure the box to the bike.

Some I came across on a quick search:

Hey sorry for the late reply, but the brand of the rack is KlickFix. Here's pretty much what I used, the only difference is the bag itself is an older style, but the rack part is the same. hope that helps

This.

I have a Timbuk2 XT under seat bag and it fits tube, multitool, tire lever, patches and co2 perfectly. It's an all-in-one mobile flat kit that's protected from the elements. I never have to worry about packing tools anymore, I just make sure I have my kit.

There are cheaper generic ones too.

u/sparklekitteh · 1 pointr/bicycling

Other stuff that may be handy:

  • saddle bag or panniers for carrying extra tubes, snacks, etc.
  • basic gloves, they'll help keep your hands comfy on long rides; I have Pearl Izumi "Select" gloves that work great.
  • bike jersey with pockets to hold your keys/water bottle/whatever. You can get cheap ones from China on eBay with whatever design you like, I just ordered a Spongebob one for $20
  • water bottle and cage (if your bike doesn't come with one)
u/ZoraQ · 2 pointsr/bicycling

Topeak makes a great saddle bag as well. http://www.amazon.com/Aero-Wedge-Pack-Fixer-Small/dp/B000FI6X4Y. I like the quick on/off options the model has. Stock with tube, patch kit, tools and a CO2 filler...

u/suddensapling · 1 pointr/bicycling

They're pricey, but something like the Carradice Barley (not sure how big a seat bag you're after) ought to work fine with a VO sprung saddle. See: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_K3LsaGxYIZg/SoGvpIjL70I/AAAAAAAAAzo/HSJgWHZmrLU/s400/carradice_pash2.jpg

If you're after something smaller/more affodable, Banjo Brothers makes a saddle bag that should attach in a similar fashion - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003EIXFHA/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_1?pf_rd_p=1944687642&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B003D4IT8K&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=Z652S8FP67ECAEX9G9VA

u/atechnicnate · 1 pointr/bicycling

I think that's a reasonable figure to use to get started. As was already stated don't forget about the helmet, tubes etc. I'd keep 1 spare tube per bike, a bike pump (or CO2), a helmet each, a multi-tool, tire levers and a bike bag or two. Make sure you know how to change a tire before heading out just in case you need it on the trail (it's not hard). Sometimes Craigslist is a good place to look. Fuji makes reasonably priced entry level bikes if you have a retailer for them nearby. I think Specialized, Trek and Cannondale will all run a bit more unless you can find some closeout deals.

Suggestions: I like this bike bag, This is the multi-tool I carry

u/BigCliff · 2 pointsr/bicycling

Pedros has made this one for years.

I've got one. Its a pretty perfect size for a tube, small tool, and a couple levers.

u/unidentifiedBLKmale · 1 pointr/FixedGearBicycle

Thanks! It’s called a “cool change” saddle bag. It’s a hard shell and water proof. Fits my spare tube. Patch kit/first aid, mini pump, tire levers and Allen keys too.
Had little to no play riding.

Here’s the link if your interested.

u/vaclavhavelsmustache · 1 pointr/bicycling

I have this one that I picked up from REI and it's great. Compact, stays put, and holds a surprising amount of gear. Currently I've got a spare tube, tire levers, a patch kit, a CO2 inflator, a multitool, and a few zip ties in mine. It even has a spot on the back to clip a light on to.

u/felt_rider · 1 pointr/bicycling

:D

Seat Saddle Bag from Amazon and Snack Bag was from my awesome LBS (but available on Amazon as well)

u/Falconinati · 2 pointsr/bicycling

Looks a lot like this: https://www.amazon.com/Defiance-Large-Packing-Saddle-Black/dp/B01733GHGC

I've got one and really like it.

u/nudave · 1 pointr/bicycling

Look for someone else with a bike with something like this hanging off the seat. Odds are there’s a multi-tool in there and they could help you out.

u/Remerez · 2 pointsr/Super73

Perfect spot for a crash kit!

u/Karnaugh359 · 2 pointsr/bikecommuting

in the same vein but 1/3rd the price: https://www.amazon.com/Defiance-Large-Packing-Saddle-Black/dp/B01733GHGC

I've been using that to carry my lunch/clothes/tube/tools for a few months and it's awesome. No extra weight from a rack.

u/lurifaxen94 · 1 pointr/bikecommuting

spare tube, pump and tools to change it ;)
https://www.amazon.com/Rockbros-Waterproof-Cycling-Shell-Saddle/dp/B074RCT4KH

Something like this is great to keep ur tools in if you dont wear a backpack/panniers

u/singlejeff · 2 pointsr/bikepacking

KADA, it's a pack I found on Amazon. Looks like they've gone to a wider webbing since I purchased mine. https://www.amazon.com/Kada-Large-Packing-Saddle-Black/dp/B01733GHGC

u/Jaha13 · 1 pointr/triathlon

Yes. I have a bag similar to this: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B074HZ1B97/

Mine is a little smaller than that one, just enough to fit the basics.

u/Lenin18702204 · 2 pointsr/bicycling

BV Bicycle Strap-On Saddle/Seat Bag, Medium, Black https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00A3W8EG2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_xzhmDb7QHQSTX

I have the medium version of this one. Inside there is a spare inner tube, tube sealing stickers (for when the inner tube is repairable), 2 tyre removing tools, 3 allen keys (for every bolt size present on my bike), a presta to shrader adapter and a pair of vinyl gloves. When I ride I also fit my phone, a small battery pack and a usb c cable.

All of this is in the unextended position of the bag.

u/dcdenizen · 1 pointr/bicycling

Very interesting idea ditching the backpack! Indeed I was planning on getting an Airbnb at my turn around point and hitting up a local brewery in the evening. I don't have actual biking shoes so cruising around town in my sneakers doesn't sound too bad. But I am suspicious of fitting fresh clothes in a jersey. I just have a tri top at the moment with tiny pockets, big enough for fuel but not for clothes. But maybe I'll survey the jerseys at a bike store sometime and see about these supposed pockets.

Saddle bags are on the long list of bike things I don't understand. I got the small size of this one but it looks nothing like the photo on my bike and sticks out a bunch behind the seat and is all awkward looking. I still can't figure out how something bigger than this could possibly go on my bike. Maybe because I'm 5'4" and have the seat almost all the way down? Or my seat is small? Or it's just a small person bike? I dunno.

u/iynque · 2 pointsr/hammockcamping

I have a set of waterproof Ortlieb panniers for most of my gear, but my hammock is kind of large/long when folded up, so it sits on top of my rear-rack in a dry bag (similar to the Ortlieb rack top bag, but cheaper—and none of the pictures in the link show it, but the bag lays across the two panniers).

I don't think I own a backpack large enough, and I wouldn't want to wear a backpack through 50 miles of sweaty cycling anyway. Most bikepackers will use a seat bag (something like this) to keep the load slim and behind them for any narrow or overgrown paths; most bicycle touring (primarily roads instead of wilderness trails) is done with panniers on a rear cargo rack. Almost nobody wears a backpack if they can avoid it.

u/hbalagtas · 1 pointr/bikecommuting

The saddle bag itself has a hook that's made for attaching bike lights https://www.amazon.ca/Zixtro-Wasp-Saddle-Bag-Black/dp/B008M67QEC

u/firewally · 1 pointr/bicycling

I have this BV Saddle Bag. The medium is $10.99 and holds all my shit admirably. I carry 2 levers, tube, bike tool, regular multi-tool, and some bandages, and I have a frame-mounted pump but you could put a CO2 inflator in the bag instead if you don't want anything else on the bike.

u/bigredbicycles · 1 pointr/bicycling

Isn't it a bit of a pain to get stuff out of there? I don't have to empty a saddle bag out to pull stuff out. Standing on the side of the road to fix a flat is enough of a pain.

I saw you noted that you "don't have room" to put a saddle bag on your saddle because of how far forward your saddle is, but there are many options for saddle bags out there that don't require a lot of room. I use one of these and I can put the velco strap through the angled part of the rails.
