Re: Tools to have with you.
Hmm... 10 and 14 mm combo wrenches, and a variant on each that has a ratchet-box end (so 4 wrenches), an 8mm wrench, Phillips screwdriver, slot screwdriver, chain tool w/spare link and clip(s), tire patches, extra rubber cement, some rubber shim material, cable ties, wire ties, needlenose and basic pliers, set of allen wrenches. My spoke wrench lives on the biner with my keys so it's always handy. An old roll of electrical tape, and probably a few other misc. bits and pieces as well. I leave the sockets and such at home, and go over the motor with a torque wrench about once a week.
Edit: I also have a pair of clear lens safety glasses stowed in the frame bag.. night riding is great, but getting bugs and crap in your eyes is no fun.
Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
