    Don't forget cable ties and some rags to wipe your hands.

    oylavabeer,

    To your kit I'd add:

    spare spark plug
    roll of tape
    about $3 - $4 in quarters for phone calls & vending machines
    cheap, thin poncho from the dollar-store
    (to sit out the rain in or cover your bike while you're in McDonald's)
    Band-Aids
    small note pad and pencil
    bandana
    small (legal) pocket knife
    matches or lighter
    any required medicine

    All of the above won't take up much room ... pretty much just a hand full ...
    or will roll up in the bandana.

    Happy trails.....
    .trk.

    I do have pliers, but I have never needed them to change or remove the master link. I just use my fingers and a screwdriver.

    Some do not like to use a master link, I do. If something ever happens to my motor I want to be able to remove my chain so that it will be easier to pedal. You could always remove the chain from the sprockets but the it will be stuck there and always a chance of it getting wedged somewhere and causing more problems.

    They say it is a weak link, EXACTLY! If the chain is going to fail thats where it will fail and is a simple fix on the road. I actually carry a few master links, just do not have it in the pic.

    In mine:

    Guerilla tape
    Zip ties
    Adjustable wrench
    whole kaboodle of allen wrenches
    pliers
    flathead/phillips head combo screwdriver

    i figure if i need anything else, i have a heck of a lot more to worry about than the state of my bike

    The most important tool that, I believe, was neglected is a Cell Phone!

    Haha, yeah I had to use my cell phone today when my chain got derailed. I had to remove the 'quick link' and i did not have any tools but my cell phone has an aluminium case which had a pointy edge.
