A no-brainer piece of additional kit that tucks neatly away on the bottom of the bike. When I need access to a tool–be that one of various tyre levers or spanners–I’m too impatient to abide having to unfasten my luggage and start rummaging for that needle in a haystack item. Cue the handiest solution I’ve come across to date.
After over three straight years on the road, with two bikes–my own and my partner’s–to maintain and sometimes repair, this tool tube is worth its weight in gold. Cost effective, well-made and not over-engineered. Because it’s black and bolted discreetly onto the side of the engine bars, it doesn’t draw attention either.
