    In another thread you were saying, to paraphrase, you eat a lot of carbs because they are fuel now you're saying this.
    So are you just full of it or do you have a reason for eating a lot of 'fuel' except for when it would actually do any good?

    I grabbed one of my kids soft pencil cases ($1.50 or so)

    Fits everything I need, tube, co2, patches, money, tire lever, etc.

    It fits perfectly in my jersey pocket. No more saddle bags for me.

    Big spender Sandwich bags wrapped in an elastic work well too. But they don't last forever. $1.50 should pay off in the long run.

    I used the pencil case as a test to see how much it would hold, how it would fit in my pocket, etc.

    It's worked very well and after a few months it has shown no major wear so I've kept using it.

    I was replying to the OP'er. He only has one WB position, so I assume he has his WB there.

    I have 2 WB positions, 1 has my tools in a bottle. Unless it is a really long ride or extremely hot, then I put the tools in my jersey. But I hate having a bunch of heavy stuff in the jersey, so .... unless it is necessary, it ain't guna happen.

    I know guys that always sponge of the peleton, I just ride right by when they have a flat and they have the funniest face when they see no one is going to stop! I'll borrow what I need when i forget, but that is not my everyday plan!

    Yes, I eat a ton of carbs. The lion's share of my diet easily.

    How do you think I have fuel to ride in a fasted state?

    I don't think you understand how this works.

    Arkel has an awesome (to me) lightweight under seat pack. I have a multi tool, 2 Pete's levers, tube, CO2 cartridge x2, and a spare chain link. Nice and tight and out of the way.

    My saddle bag is heavier that a 25oz water bottle......

    To the OP - just stick a tube, and tire levers plus CO2 in a jersey pocket if you're going for shorter rides locally, and throw another water bottle and saddle bag on if you are going long.

    The point is that I don't use a second bottle but maybe once or twice a year.

    Carrying a second bottle full of water that I never use on 99% of rides is not something I'm going to do. A full bottle is very heavy vs. having no bottle at all.

    The smallest, lightest bottle on the market, the Elite Fly, is 611 grams full of water (only 550ml).

    My tool bottle is only 359 grams totally stocked. That puts my tool bottle at half the weight of a typical bottle of water.
