    Did you notice that the wolf tooth also has a tire removal spoon on end?

  2. MrLaurensS on July 21, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Old (& interesting!) video, but I wanted to add: sunscreen! Have had my fair share of sunburned calves…
    And for me personally: chapstick – I get really dry lips on long rides.

  3. M P on July 21, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    If you ride by yourself over long distances:
    -2 pumps
    -multiple tubes, at least one with "no patches"
    -small vice grips
    -decent quality electrical tape (you cab wrap a blowout, for instance; just remember to disconnect the brake to that wheel)

    I ride a long distance but in a city, so I haven’t been carrying much ‘survival’ eqpt. Thinking about adding some this year. The problem with a some of that is it can age poorly and not actually be of use when you need it.

  4. Paul Kronk on July 21, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    You should carry a proper CAT tourniquet, none of those other things you have will even begin to work for stopping significant bleeding.

  5. Luc Bettaieb on July 21, 2022 at 10:49 pm

    You may wish to revise your first aid kit. I’d definitely carry more gauze, tweezers, neosporin, tape, a knife, and maybe some stiptic powder.

  6. Brian Faris on July 21, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    That chain tool also looks like a tire tool.

  7. Hutchy_4 on July 21, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    I always carry water and my cell phone and ID, medical insurance card and a little cash

  8. Sci-Fy guy on July 21, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    Casio watch-Looks like a G Shock on a nato type strap. 👍 Definitely a watch guy. 🔥🚴🏻‍♂️🔥

  9. San Juan on July 21, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    Like your channel! Throw a minibic lighter in the bag and some tinder like wetfire etc. re stopping a real bleeding Cary a TQ a SWAT T would fit your minimal vibe hell you could probably use it for extra tube patches..
    Keep rocking the party pace.

  10. Dinner-fork tongue on July 21, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    There’s a disturbing lack of flashlight on this kit. I hope that’s been fixed in more recent iterations.

  11. Peter Lough on July 21, 2022 at 10:58 pm

    You should consider using quickclot! It won’t replace a tourniquet if you nick and artery or vein but for large cuts that bleed heavily it can be a real help

  12. John Muther Colonel, Ret. on July 21, 2022 at 10:58 pm

    So as a vegan, do I need to carry Kale strips instead of the bacon strips 🤔😬

  13. QuoththeRaven on July 21, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    I carry only my leatherman, sometimes water.

  14. phil hall on July 21, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    I live in New Mexico. I carry my bear spray every day whether I’m in the back country or in town. Ive never had to pull it for a bear, they usually just walk on by. That said I have to pull it about once a week for dogs. Ive been chased, charged, bitten and pulled of my bike.

    When I ride in Northern Idaho, you bet your bippy I ride with Bear Spray. And no, the cheapie pepper spray will only get you eaten. Think of the pepper spray as a condiment for how tasty you are to that hungry momma bear. When I ride in Southern Idaho, you can bet your bippy I ride with Bear Spray. I have seen cougars on the trail and it’s not fun thinking you are basically cat nip for these pretty kitties. As a Clydesdale Rider, my must have is a small shoe polish size can of Chamois Cream. Don’t laugh, it has literally gotten me back to my starting point. I also carry in my seat bag a tiny water purification straw. It’s 3 inches and does the job. I wouldn’t want to use it long term, but for the JIC moments, yeah.

  18. Remco S on July 21, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    Disinfectant, SAM splint (when offroad), insect repellent and sunscreen.

  19. Vic Kanid on July 21, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    I have a whistle in my first aid kit. It’s come in handy if people get separated and I’ve actually used it once when hunting and some of the party got temporarily lost. I also tend to have a light jacket if it rains…

  20. JohnnyGification on July 21, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    I live in the ghetto so I might have to get some of that bear spray.

  21. Pworrell on July 21, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    I pretty much carry the same thing but also carry a emergency beer and zigzags and a lighter

  22. Mike on July 21, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    Way too much and too heavy.
    What I need for my bikes: Spare tube, tube patches, short 3mm, 4mm and 5mm hex keys. When I’m traveling I add 4 spare spokes, spoke key, shifter cable, a few zip ties and a piece of tape wrapped around a piece of credit card. I’ve never had a broken chain.

  23. Jonathan Peters on July 21, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    Tube tires?

  24. piro mittig on July 21, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    I add a small rag for cleaning everything from sealant to greasy stuff, a paper towel instead of TP, park tire boot and tube because stuff just happens.

  25. RollinRat on July 21, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    Now that winter is here, I always carry a light. Then I don’t care how much ‘partying’ and ‘pacing’ slows down the ride!!

  26. Fake Name on July 21, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    flip the extra little bitt of nato strap back underneath it’s self so it doesn’t show, you monster!

  27. Marc Mallary on July 21, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    I carry extra spokes and a Mini Cassette Lockring Driver, in case I brake a spoke inside the cassette. https://www.steintool.com/portfolio-items/mini-cassette-lockring-driver/

  28. Kel Beverley on July 21, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    I’m a Mountain Biker and I love this vid, Bro.

  29. Polish guy with hard to spell name ;-p on July 21, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    You might actually find that tube glue dries out once opened for the first time. So as much as this is better than glueless, I stopped carrying glue, cause it can be single use, or very chancy after first use-you carry it, but don’t relly know it it’s dry or still usable=if you ride or push home despite having "all" the tools 🙂

  30. Enrie Jay Ocate on July 21, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    How many kilo meter do you usually ride??

  31. Tortinwall on July 21, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    I carry a small rectangle cut from an old inner tube. A couple of years back a tyre had a big blow-out but the hole was small enough for me to insert a piece of the blown out inner tube between the new inner and the tyre, although it took some time to cut out a piece without the use of a knife. As long as it will withstand 20 psi it will get you home.

  32. Fart Zilla on July 21, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    I keep my first aid kit in a vacuum sealed sandwich bag. Less likely to be contaminated and saves space.

  33. Oleg Petelevitch on July 21, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    Im in Australia m8 snakes funnel webs no bears ! Ha ha !

  34. John Smith on July 21, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    Oddly enough, I had my first chain break today. Guess I need to add a chain breaker and master link to the go-bag.
    Only walked about 2 blocks before a neighbor picked me up and gave me a ride home. Lucky

  35. southface06 on July 21, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    A good tip with the first aid kit, I realized mine is too limited. I never ride without a spare tube, I’ve had cuts in tires that no amount of sealant could ever fix, zip ties are also useful.

  36. Pete Benson on July 21, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    A trash bag like a kitchen liner for super compact emergency rain gear. Make sure you can fit it over your torso.

  37. Dave Meise on July 21, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    I carry bear spray all the time when I’m in the woods. I’ve been laughed at a lot while cycling but IF it ever happens it is always better to have something one doesn’t need than to need something one doesn’t have.

  38. Thomas F. on July 21, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    Are the Pedro’s tire levers strong enough to remove tubeless tires?

  39. Puro on July 21, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    lära i to learn in swedish fyi

  40. kyle lockhart on July 21, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    Never leave home without a Leatherman and a light weight tarp 🙂

  41. Bill in Houston on July 21, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    Nice set of stuff. Thanks!

  42. Terry Von Zuben on July 21, 2022 at 11:29 pm

    Great list! If I could add: pocket knife (never be without) and an ounce of Baby shampoo.
    The knife is obvious and the baby shampoo is essential for cleaning wounds or sensitive body parts. E.g.: irrigating eyes. Thanks for the video.🐾🇨🇦

  43. AJ Schmidt on July 21, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    It looked like the chain quick link tool was also a tire lever.

  44. Dellagha Ahmady on July 21, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    Perfect accessories! 👍

  45. QuiJa Driss on July 21, 2022 at 11:35 pm

    I carry bear spray just to keep the kids in line on family rides.

  46. Barry Bogart on July 21, 2022 at 11:37 pm

    On day rides I occasionally get lost on back roads on Vancouver Island so also carry a lighter, compass, and SAK or Leatherman and map. Along with mylar blanket, powerbank, garbage bag and whistle and of course coyote/dog spray (bear spray carry is iffy in Canada). This stuff stays with the bike on every ride.

  47. Tara CR on July 21, 2022 at 11:37 pm

    Hi Russ. I saw where you carry gauze to hold on the bandana. There’s a way to tie bandanas so you don’t need that. Any rocker kid from the 80s knows. Turn it diagonally and roll. Then the narrow corner ends give you built in ties for bandaging. I actually had to use this technique for a friend who fell and gashed her leg while we were riding a gravel trail. It’s a very handy technique.

  48. gravityjunkie47 on July 21, 2022 at 11:38 pm

    Like you kit but not the two chain breakers. Also I like to carry zip ties and duct tape. I wrap the duct tape around my tire levers so it is always there if I need to boot a tire or quickly repair a jacket or something else. Good stuff with your first aid kit, it is minimal but covers the bases. Oh, and a pocket knife!

  49. Nik Veldkamp on July 21, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    👌👌👌spot on.

  50. Roshan Bagga on July 21, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    Why do you have only one tire lever
