The first question was what he would want in his tool roll.
The intended purpose of the kit is urban riding so suggestions included:
- spare tube
- tire irons
- adjustable wrench
- phillips screw driver
- allen wrench multi-size thingie
- patch kit
- latex gloves for grimy repairs
- pepper spray
- small first aid kit (alcohol pad and a little jar of liquid skin)
- a clifbar (never know when you will get hungry or get a hole in your tire and need some foil)
- zip ties
Because of the shape of the bag we decided to make it a flat envelope, rather than a roll. It secures, as you can see, with black velcro. The red tabs help lift it.
Next was the divider. It is merely a piece of plastic foamboard cut to fit and enveloped in fabric which had pockets pre-applied. By adding velcro on the sides of the divider and inside the bag we are able to position it wherever he needs. Now he has a slim tool section and the rest of his bag free to bring me home more wine!
