Advice - Tools & Backpacks
Posted April 27, 2000 - 01:32 PM
Also interested in any recommendations for a decent size top loading backpack that will fit over a chest protector. Some of our Mexico rides are overnight. I'm 6'4", 250lbs - so it's an even more difficult problem statement than just the chest protector.

I had to fix a flat on my front tire once and I used a pair of robo-pliers to get the nut off. Don't think it would work on the rear though.

I use deep sockets for all the sizes I need, a jointed handle (no ratchet), an extension, and a few other odds and ends. I haven't worried about wheel/tire operations yet. If I start carrying spare tubes the tire stuff will probably be carried on the bike with the tubes.
I also carry a spare sparkplug in an Acerbis sparkplug case.
