Fellow Seattlite and Etsy seller Erica Hanson has put together a great little tool bag for discerning bikers: the Mopha. It’s waxed canvas and consists of ten of little pockets for you to put your patch kits, hex wrenches, spare tube, and all that jazz. Then roll it up and strap it to your frame. Hell of a good-looking thing, and the simple, rugged construction seems like it should last quite a few years. I’d hide snacks in it too, I think.
At $38 (plus $6 for shipping), I’d say it’s a pretty good deal. Update: Oops, someone bought it. Try this one if you still want one.
