    Have a lot of the ones mentioned, the park presses and the 'rocket' thing for press fit BB are cool. One of my favs is a filzer 'mini zee' pump. It's one of the mini floor pump style pumps, hose with gauge and fold out foot handle. Carry it in my pack and whenever it comes out every comments on it, I'll take it out if I see someone starting to pump with an awkward small mini pump because it's way faster.

    I don't have a fancy photo to post, but my most used tool(s) are my Topeak digital tire pressure gauge, and my Topeak Joe Blow pump. I use those before each ride.

    At some point, I want to get a nice set of T-handle wrenches including Torx. Right now I have a set of Ls and 3 different Y wrenches, but the Ys are really annoying for access on certain things (tend to hit spokes when tightening brake mounts, or dropper stanchion when tightening saddle bolts).

    Replaced tool box with roll for traveling. Working great and 1000x easier to pack.
    If you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it tubeless, I will. I got spare time.

    Friend of mine had a roll like that stolen in Mexico. He is super bummed. Nicely equipped.

    It's like a pitcher that's harder to fill but easier to pour?

    Show off your tool

    This is a good spot for Grant's toolbox. Super nice kid, and a great wrench

    This. All the time.

    Also fits the main pivot bolt on my Commencal Clash.

    Favorite is a tie between my Park cable/housing cutters and socket driven Rock Shox topcap/cassette tool.

    All I can think is how many more tools I could have in the pelican case just rattling around if the foam wasn't there. Glass syringes sure, but I don't need to protect cable cutters.

    floor pump, blender, a pair of shoes, my 13lb dog.......man so much more room in there just wasted.

    Do it. I have the older metal version of the Pedro's tool box (newer version below) and I finally just pulled almost all the dividers and organizers out and just dumped everything in there. I can carry more tools plus backup stuff like rotors, cleats, even some tubes. This only thing that isn't awesome about using it this way is that sometimes the t handled allens are a little buried or it takes a second to find the right ratchet wrench. Not a big deal.

    Might as well just store your tools in a hefty bag if you're going to forgo any sort of organization.

    I did this for a bit, its stressful and awful. I drew the line when I reached in for a tool and came out bleeding.

    I threw in hard and went full nerd on mine earlier this summer, hopefully finish it over the winter.

    Without a doubt, it makes working on things quickly a lot less stressful.

    This. I love my dental picks. I somehow always need one. Easily one of my most grabbed tools when working on bikes.

    Not bike related... but, I do love a good impact. This has made working on my vehicles a much more enjoyable experience.

    I just used a tiny eyeglass screwdriver or a broken spoke instead of picks for years, never thought it'd be a lot different. I love those things, use them all the time for stuff. Sadly bent one a bit recently but vice grips seemed to have fixed them for now.
