Spare & Repair
A list of all the spare and repair parts I carry with me. It’s very consistent throughout the trip, where ever I find myself: this is what I need. Whether an Ortlieb panniers has yet another hole, the brake screw got fatigued or the mattress a puncture.
I need to say that I don’t take a spare chain and spare tires with me anymore, I used to that while in Africa.
Screws for Magura (brake set).
Rohloff tool to attach to the sprocket in order to loosen it, turn it, or replace it.
Therm-A-Rest repair set.
Magura oil (for the brakes)
Rohloff oil set (for the speedhub)
Magura spare brake cable. Screws for the brakes, Magura require a renewal of screws in the brake-handle now and then too. I always, or almost always, carry enough brake pads.
Patches to repair a flat tire. Many kind of patches. Much glue.
A piece of inner tube (for attaching to the racks so the panniers have more grip).
Rohloff easy set (shifting cable).
Tie rips and a set of Ortlieb repair patches and glue.
A Toppeak Road Morph pump, Slime tubes and normal Schwalbe tubes.
I carry spare spokes with me too, stored under the seat post in the frame.
I try to have Seam Grip Sealer with me at all times, its great glue for repairing the mattress and sealing leaking seams in the tent.
