Not to long after my S24O backpacking trip I found an article on the equipment Eric of Epic Designs uses on his bikepacking trips. I found this to be one of the best equipment list that I have found on this subject. I think what made it good was how things where grouped together and package.
I had most of the same equipment and for the most part all the stuff can be used for bikepacking and backpacking.So just like my Made In America Series I will have Building the Kit Series. First up to bat will be Tool Kit #1. This is the tool kit that I take on every ride. It works for both road and mountain biking. It will fit in a saddle bag but I like putting it in my jersey pocket.
Disclaimer: That carpet is in my office. It looks better in real time than in the picture!
The Ultimate Direction bag holds all the items other than the co2 inflator.
Inside the bag we have the following:
1. Cool Tool multi-tool
2. Park Tool Tire Lever
3. Spare CO2 Cartridge
4. Tire patch box with the following: (2)Park Tool super patch, (1)Valve stem adapter,(1)Chain pin,(2) Sram quick link (1)Spare Chain link
The only thing I would think about changing is the Cool Tool. They make lighter and better multi-tools. The patch box takes up some room but keeps all the small parts in one place.
