Sorry, guys. We’re going to have to refer to Rule 30 of The Official Euro Cyclist Code of Conduct, which clearly states: “ABSOLUTELY NO FORM of seatbag, frame pump, mud guard or mirror shall come within two (2) metres of one’s bike.”
A team car or a teammate is the only way to carry a spare tube, a multi-tool and an inflator. A frame pump is only acceptable if you’re planning on putting it into someone’s spokes a la “Breaking Away.” And if you have a team car, you better have a spare bike and spare wheels, thus negating the need for amateur tools and extra tubes.
On that note, if you ever see me on the side of the road with a flat, please stop. The team car’s in the shop.
