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
