Hi All

Think this is the right place so I'm doing more long ride's and am thinking about what I need in my bag in case of a problem
at the moment , I have listed spare tube, or tube's tyre levers , multi tool , and a pump or C02 bit's , but I have a question about the C02 bit's do you have to have a totally flat tyre , or can you just top up your tyre's if they look a little flat :?: , also is there any thing else you'd put in your bag in case of emergency

thanks and sorry if these are silly question's , Ian

    Tube, puncture kit, pump, multitool, tyre levers, chain tool, couple of spare master links, cable tie, tyre boot and if it's a very long ride maybe a gear cable.

    A small wrap of gaffer tape has got me home after I split a tubeless tyre and had to fit a tube with gaffer tape over the hole.

    I keep a strip of gaffer tape wrapped around a loyalty card (or similar) - provides a neat and tidy way of carrying some tape without it taking up excess space or weight.

    definitely cable ties and gaffer tape ... its amazing what you can strap together after crashing an mtb and ripping a gear/brake shifter off, ripping a rear mech off and having a 10mile trip back home
