Afternoon one and all

 

I am entered for the Subaru Kalahari Challenge in July, and while I have a vague Idea of what to bring, I was wondering if there is anything I could be leaving out which maybe some kind people could assist me with.

 

As it stands I have thought of the following - bike related for now, but feel free to post anything else you may think I will find usefull

 

Spare chain

Chain links

Quick links

Spare rear derailer

Shock pump and tyre pump

Lube

Brushes and clean green

Hanger

Spare tyre

Spare tubes (3?)

Cable ties

Duct tape

Pocket knife

Multi tool

Tyre levers

bombs and hand pump

Puncture repair kit

Gators

 

All I can think of for now. Any advice or comment would be welcome and appreciated.

Perhaps upgrade to full outer cables (if you haven't already) and take a spare set along.

I assume your multi tool has a chain breaker?

Possibly add a pair or two of brake pads.

A UST valve (?)

A few spokes (especially if they are unusual)

Yes the multitool has a chainbreaker
