Picture of Stashing Your Bike Tools

I like to use my bike for transportation, to and from work and visiting local stores. The biggest downside is when I want to make one or more stops in the trip. I live in a neighborhood with a lot of bums and they will steal anything they see and think they can sell that isn't secured, including bike accessories. This means I can't simply have a tool pouch and pump that I ignore until I have to make a roadside repair. They have to be removed and taken with me at every store I might visit. Until now.

I bought a Post Pump for the pump issue and the patch kit is in the seat post tube.

This left the allen wrenches and screwdriver. I was carrying a multi-tool in my pocket but wasn't satisfied with that and was trying to think of a way to stash it somewhere on the bike, to no avail. Until I saw the Kickstarter for Fix It Sticks. I now have everything I might need for a roadside emergency stashed, except for the crescent wrench.

Things you'll need.

A paper clip.

Fire.

Scissors.

Some strong string.

Some thin padding.

Step 1: Throw away the Pouch.

They come in this recycled inner tube pouch. Throw it away. It's a clever idea but the stitching was unraveling as soon as I opened the package they came it. You're not going to need it anyway.

 

This is a very clever idea. I used to be a bike messenger, and would never be caught dead leaving stuff on my bike. This, however, is a good trick.
