I know this subject has been discussed before in plenty. But those post are getting old and things change. Yes I know the bolt sizes don't change, but tool offerings does and peoples mindset on what they need seems to always evolve. And the most popular tool thread (critique my tool) has some inaccuracies regarding the axle bolt sizes (at last for Gen1).
So with that, what do you pack? Do you consider it a conservative tool kit? Practical? Minimal, or I can fix anything anywhere kit? Do you pack different for short or long trips?
I am more of a minimalist except for where things are extremely handy, like a bead buddy. Tire changes are a pain to me.
I haven't figure out all the tools necessary yet, but I do know these things:
2-3 Tire Irons (Ideally the combo wrenches in axle nut sizes)
Metric sizes seem to be:
24, 22, 19, 17, 14, 12 mm
Cross/Phillips screw driver
Allen wrenches (haven't looked at the sizes yet)
Air pump (this I might have two of, one hand pump for overnight trips to pack light with and one electric pump for day trips)
General fixit supplies:
Duct tape (because if it is moving and it is not supposed to, duct tape it... or if I need to make a boat to forge a river)
Cotter pins for axle nuts
Bailing wire to assist the duct tape
JB weld (saw a video where a guy used it to seal a hole in the crankcase)
Locktite (assuming thumpers like to rattle parts off)
Tire patch kit
Front and rear spare tubes
I am wondering if I can get away with a replaceable tip screw driver for the cross tip and allen wrenches, or is that just too small and easy to lose in the dirt.
Anyways, thanks in advance!
