    Two things I carry that I don’t see listed yet.
    1. Space blanket
    2. Fire starter - waxed cotton balls with magnesium shavings and a wind proof lighter

    These went into the pack after buddy’s broken arm meant we weren’t going to get to help saefely before dark. That was one miserable night. Have been to one unplanned bivouac since - happy we had them.

    Didn’t know people were using road tubes.
    Don’t know how much a road tube weighs.
    The Tubolito is 78g.
    Not sure I’d trust a road tube stretched that thin, but maybe.
    Road tube would make a great tourniquet

    If you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it tubeless, I will. I got spare time.

    Not sure on weight. Sub 100 I’m pretty sure. I already had some for the gravel bike, and liked how small and easy to carry they are. I’ve had to use one twice, and was able to ride out no problem. I was more careful than I normally would be, but definitely didn’t pussy foot, and they did fine.
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    Good to know.

    Main “advantage” to me was: already ordering some things from Eurozone and felt like it’d be fun to check them out. Tax refund, low self esteem, etc.
