Special needs bags - Other than the obvious spare inner tube and CO2 cartridge, I am wondering what everyone puts in there? I'm thinking at some point on the bike I am going to need a boost or a treat of some kind to keep me going, that is not a gel, banana, energy bar. I am thinking a ham sandwich (as I always crave one at the end of a long ride) and some flat coke!
Which energy/ food bags do people have? I currently use the Deuter Energy Bag but it is a little small for my supplies and wondered if anyone can recommend a slightly bigger one. Looking at the Topeak Tri-Bag. Just having a bit of a panic shop on Wiggle. Was going to get some CO2 cartridges as well but never used them before!! Not had a puncture in a couple of years so Sod's Law dictates I am due one in Tenby
Ooh is this a pirate kit scrounging thread??? I am doing IM Wales in 3 weeks and am in need of as much support as I can get as I will be as close to the cut off times as possible (hopefully just on the right side of them). Would love to borrow a monaco or cycling top, or anything that will bring me a loud encouraging cheer on the bike, if there are any willing lenders, or if any kit was left over from the last order?? I think I would need a small or medium (usually a size 10-12).
