    When I go out most places, I grab my messenger bag. Otherwise, if its just down the street or a quick run, I'll bring a ulock only. I carry enough tools to take care of whatever goes wrong with my bike while out on the road (especially when I commute). The tools consist of a small 15mm open/box ratcheting wrench, 6mm Allen wrench, Soma 100psi mini pump, 3 Soma tire levers, a small patch kit, a swiss army knife, and a Leatherman XTi multi-tool with interchangeable bit drivers (1-6mm Allen wrench, few sizes of Philip's and flat head). The rest of the crap I carry usually consists of a ulock if I need it or not, pair of gloves, sweatshirt, water, mints, deodorant, buff multi functional head wear, a pen and a mechanical pencil, lighter, wallet, meds, and a spare house key.

    Lets see or hear what everyone else usually carries!

    This seems mighty excessive, but you never know. i spend a fair amount of time no where near my house once i leave for the day, so the boy scout in me ALWAYS carries:

    Collapsible baton
    15mm peanut butter wrench
    headset/pedal wrench
    spoke wrench
    Kershaw Leek knife
    2x tubes
    2x CO2's
    Soma steel lever
    Rain jacket
    Platy bag
    basic first aid kit
    asst. powerbars
    pocket constitution
    travel toothbrush
    eye drops
    some aluminum foil
    extra contacts
    bic lighter
    a bouncy ball

    Its really not as heavy as it sounds, and its good training. when i ride sans-bag i feel like a million bucks

    Nothing really ecept always my wallet and cell. I never travel far. If I did take a long trip I would have two tubes, a lock, flashlight, cellphone, carbs, water, aspirin and a rain parka. Maybe a map.

    oh, and an ipod.

    gotta have the jams.

    only in one ear though. safe T first, kidos.
    I'm pretty much with Otto. I wear a backpack with a spare tube, an inflator with two cartridges, a spare hippie jerky snack in case I run out of gas, wallet and phone, multi-tool, hex set, tiny flashlight, camera, little tiny lock, a hat for not having stupid hair when I take my helmet off, a notebook, a toothbrush, travel chopsticks, spare change, a condom, business cards, and assorted bits and bobs.

    All not including whatever the payload is, which usually includes my computer.

    desert eagle and a fleshlight.
    but really, i live (and sometimes work) out of my bag, so over the summer i used a ortlieb backpack, and i ordered a 4300 seagull backpack for the winter.. i only pack the necessities but i also carry a washboard, slingshot, and usually some sort of boxed wine or malt beverage.
    ... washboard?
    yeah you like doin your laundry out in wild? just you, your desert and your washboard...
    ... So you're also carrying your laundry?
    and his desert eagle to protect his laundry
    I dunno, man. When I've been out biking hard, I need to defend myself from my laundry.
