I need help putting together my fender bag tool kits, etc. What should I carry and where should I carry it? I like long distance trail riding. Got a flat last weekend and figured I at least need a tube and a tire iron. How do you inflate the tire once you've replaced the tube? Anyhow, any expert advice would be appreciated.

Just get some compressed air. I got a kit at the local shop that has everything you need, patches, air, and what not. I bring the kit (with compressed air for two tires) and two tire irons with me just in case.

Check out this site. They specialize in off-road tool kits. I do a lot of exploring and long rides and have one of their Stage III kits. Contains everything needed including tire tools, C02 inflation, tube patches, etc. plus a complete set of tools, a cool flashlight and survival lighter and a great fender bag :thumbsup:
