Most of it goes in the black bag which then goes in a real backpack or a pannier along with a jacket and Clif bars. I could fit the tubes, lights, and locks in the bag too but I keep the lights out to charge and bring with when I don't bring my full kit, and I keep the tubes out because I bring different tubes depending on what bike I ride, and I keep the locks out because I don't always bring the cable lock and I occasionally bring the folding lock but not the rest of the kit if I'm using a saddle bag with less stuff.

There is something seriously wrong with your camera. Either a setting, filter, or physical grime. If you can't fix it then I suggest you get a real camera. Any $50 dollar dedicated camera will outperform a $1000 smartphone camera.

>>1186894
Nah. I'll be right. I see any gear that needs to be carried with you as an impediment to enjoying the fun of cycling. I have one drink bottle holder for a 500ml bottle and one underseat bag for my phone and wallet. That's all I need. I used to carry my bottle in a backpack, along with my other stuff and maybe some food. The back sweat was insane. It was like my spine was a waterslide. That was what prompted me to switch to my current set up of only having things on the bike itself. I even switched from wearing padded bike shorts to having a gel saddle cover. Riding around town is a lot more fun now.

I don't plan on getting a flat tire. I also ride "around town" not away from it. Home is never more than an hour away. I use a hybrid with 700c tires, not those road bikes with thin tires and high seats that raise your butt into the air like some kind of porno apparatus.

You must have very clean streets to not be worried at all
>>
>>1186911
You are confusing me. I've never had a puncture, even though I often ride like a paperboy and do a lot of sidewalk riding on the more busy streets.That involves lots of riding around people by going on the dirt and lots of riding off kerbs (I somehow magically always need to overtake someone just as they are about to cross a road). Never had a problem. I'm not riding through Detroit or anything if that's what you mean. It's what I assume you must be riding through. I just bomb the suburbs to get around and visit friends or go to the store.

Not really. Why would there be broken glass or nails on the road? No one is going to just start throwing their beer bottles on the road when their recycling bin is closer. There's no construction site losing nails everywhere, either. The street sweeper cleans up the gutters once or twice a month, too.

you sure about that? witness my level of everyday carry autism

Clif bars are awesome, I used to carry a few as emergency food but I kept eating them as non-emegency snacks and I haven't restocked yet... so it's currently 3musketeers until I manage to finish the box I was given as a gift.

Also forgot to picture my 2 water bottles but whatever. During the winter I carry a balaclava, thicker set of gloves, thermal socks, and sweater.

I know there's better knives but ultimately, this is the knife I'm most familiar with since I've got it 6 years ago. It's been through hell and back and I'm surprised it's held up, even if it doesn't see as much use as it used to.

Yeah, yours is pretty autistic too. I pictured most of my stuff, but not the stuff I wear obviously (helmet, sunglasses, gloves, and regular clothes).

I also have a survival bag with water filter, headlamp, paracord, leatherman, folding knife, sharpening stone, fire starter, signal mirror, etc, but I usually only bring that stuff when I go innawoods, not when cycling. But I have sometimes brought some of that stuff.

Regular rides (pretty much everything is in the pictures above) is:
>folding lock
>optionally also cable lock
>small lock to lock my panniers to my rack
>water bottles
>Clif bars
>optionally also Clif Shot gels
>sanitizer
>occasionally phone
>sometimes camera (I like photographing my bikes during my rides)
>tubes (amount varies, but I often bring 3 on short rides, 4 on long rides)
>2 front lights with handlebar mount and helmet mount
>3 rear lights
>Cateye computer
>pump
>a bunch of bungee cords in two sizes
>empty baggies and garbage bags
>baggies to hold stuff
>a few paper towels (that I will never have a need for)
>pair of gloves
>set screws for my fenders in case the ones on my fenders fall out
>6 tire levers (in case some break)
>adjustable wrench
>multitool with chain breaker
>rim strips
>bead jack (>inb4 weak hands, it's convenient and eliminates risk of pinchflat)
>patch kit (which I will never use because I just replace tubes)
>like 6 boots
>spare rim strips
>bunch of spare masterlinks for various speed chains
>zip ties
>compass
>maps
>pen
>notecards
>AAA phone number and account number
>thin collapsible small black backpack (I use it to store my tools/parts, not as a backpack; I put it in a real backpack or pannier)
>shell jacket (almost always even if it's summer, just in case)
>other warm clothes if it's cold; even during summer on long rides if I might be going into the night
>bivy if I'm going on a really long ride (emergency shelter, basically a sleeping bag made out of the same material as tents)

It might be the setting/filter, or just the fact that I took pictures with bad lighting. My phone pictures tend to turn out really sharp/clear when I take them outside on a sunny day, but really blurry when I take pictures with bad lighting. I had a real camera but the lens got permanently damaged when it got wet and sandy when I had it with during a ride on singletrack/doubletrack along the river bottoms, now there is always a blurry spot in the middle of the pictures. My mom has a camera she doesn't use anymore that she's going to give me next time I see her.
>>

>massive
They're regular cycling bottles. I might go through 4 in 100k, depends how hot it is and how much climbing I am doing. I didn't mean that 4 would necessarily be needed for 100k though, I meant 4 would be needed for going substantially farther than that. On some of my rides I'll go through 3-4 bottles, fill them up at a water pump, and run out again but that's only when I'm doing like 200k. I also go through a lot when I'm riding the canyon roads because then it's over a thousand meters elevation gain, or 2500+ if I do two canyons.

On every ride:
1. In saddlebag: tube, patch kit, pump, Park MT-1, wallet, housekeys, my tiny flip phone
2. Pump
3. Water bottles

As appropriate:
4. Small cable lock
5. Lights
6. Food

That's all I carry on 99% of my rides, not counting clothing and appropriate weather gear and cargo specific to a particular trip.

I have been riding for 12 years now and had 1 legit puncture. I consider myself exceptionally lucky. I keep a spare tube with levers and a pump on the road bike. I got a few bucks on a bus card for the commuter.

>>1187495
Kids it is not badass to exert yourself without proper hydration. Dehydration affects your performance and in severe cases will kill you. Don't be the miserable guy who people pass because you drank too little and water-bonk. Always take more water than you need and know where you can fill up on your ride.

This is insane. How much does all that stuff weigh? Jesus.

phone

On frame:
two water bottles on cages
lights


In bags (seat bag; handlebar if needed):
multitool
levers
two spare tubes
patch
boot
CO2
Clif bar
lock

Forgot to mention I also have a 4L camelbak which I occasionally will carry in a pannier or on a backpack if I foresee a dangerous interval between water stops.

3.95kg for locks, parts, and tools. A little over 1kg of that is the folding lock.

Not included in the 3.95kg are lights/mounts and Cateye computer (all very light) and non-bike stuff (which varies a bit from ride to ride; stuff like jacket, clif bars, water bottles, keys). 4 full water bottles is I think a little over 3kg and I think my backpack is a bit under 1kg so in total I carry 8-9kg, with about 35% of it being on my frame (mostly water) and the rest on my back.
>>
>>1187590
Actually, since the bike I ride most has only 3 bottle cages, I'm probably usually carrying around 8kg with a bit less than 30% on my frame and a bit over 70% on my back.

lel we have surprisingly similar gear list, truly this is next level bike pack autism

>>1187571
my kit minus water weight is about 15-16lbs

>>1187580
>I plan to get a lifestraw
if you can, I advise the sawyer mini filter over the lifestraw. They both have similar filtering capabilities, priced the same, but the sawyer has a rated life of 100000 gallons if used properly unlike the lifestraw's 264 gallons life rating and the sawyer comes with a system to filter into another bottle for storage. Still, whichever you can get, it's worth the weight/space. Clean water is the most important thing.

Seconding the Sawyer Mini. I don't keep one in my kit, it will be damaged if it's exposed to sub-freezing, and I don't have much need for one when I'm riding in the cities where there's water pumps along the trails, but I sometimes bring it if I'm riding in the mountains and know it will stay above freezing.

Supposedly the MSR Guardian is freeze-proof, but it's heavier (4 pounds, whereas the Sawyer Mini is at most a few ounces) and is only rated for 10,000 liters. Would be good for cold weather bikepacking/touring though.

They're shorts with shoulder straps. Feels good. Mainly because they keep the entire shorts in the same position and the padding doesn't move around.

any recommendation for shoe covers for ~10 min commutes in the rain to Uni? I've nae cycling shoes (clip ins) but everything I find seems to be designed for those.

Two main options. One is to get a pair of waterproof cycling overtrousers with inbuilt shoe covers. They'll keep your legs dry too.
Second is to get some generic overshoes from aliexpress.

I would usually recommend switching to clipless but for 10 minute commute, nah.
