    The Perfect TWool Kit

    So now I have this empty TWool TWube. I'd like to see a list of tools YOU would carry as a necessity. Being the undiminishable farmkid, my toolbox is usually very full, but weight and space are limited here, so what's in the tool kit on your TW? Thanks, and do something great today!

    Space blanket, cell phone, maps and tennis shoes. Hard to cram those tennis shoes into the tube though. Smiley face

    I don't use the tool tube for tools... they are too heavy. The tool tube will hold a couple of inner-tubes, a patch kit, wire, lighter, tinder, some minor first aide supplies, and those annoying but useful foil emergency blankets.

    For actual tools, I use a weld metal container for everything needed to fix the bike. It's about 6 pounds, so I wouldn't try to suspend it anywhere. But it's great to throw in a saddlebag or hard case.

    If I could pare things down, I'd pick some selective sockets (6 mm, 8 mm, 10 mm, 12 mm, 14 mm, 16 mm, 17 mm,19 mm & 22 mm), and keep everything else. The sockets are just easy to keep track of on the holder - easy to spot when one is missing.

    I basically use the stock kit with a multi tool in the stock location.

    In my back pack, I add a co2 inflation kit, patches, plugs (I know they arent good with tubes, but I have had them get me home slowly) safety wire, zip ties and tire irons. Anything more than that and I get the truck! If I added the tool tube, I would move my first aid kit and my tow rope from my pack with some of those supplemental items. I would also add some duct tape and electrical connector/fuse kit.

    Great answers. From beverages to band aids, TW specific tools to tennis shoes! Thanks for your help, this is a fun thread. LuvNot's welding rod bin looks heavy duty.
