    Thanks for bumping that thread, ChinaV. Excellent.

    I've taobaoed around for the Wolfman or copy/equivalent and not found something quite so compact, but did find this rollup pouch.



    Moose Racing makes a similar pouch, which includes a zippered pocket for sockets, etc, but I haven't found that here either.



    I've found online sources for the Wolfman Roll, but they don't like orders under $75....

    Wait, wait. Here's another. Not nearly as well designed, and no socket pocket.

    Mine tools are inside a rolled woolen bag. Not as neat as those dedicated tool bags but certainly more flexible and you can't beat the price!

    I'm buying this:: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=10189100762
    No, I don't like sharp tools being close to my vitals when I'm riding, so it goes in the boot..



    ChinaV, mind telling us what's #26 ??

    I've got this one about a month ago http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=9862251027 The one Euphonius displays in his post above!

    I think #26 is a holder for the pieces of #18 and #19 for example!

    I bought a SATA toolkit today. Lifetime warranty.

    Where do you get tire levers like #22? Light weight compact aluminum. I looked at the market today, couldn't find anything that compact.

    Naim, what toolkit did you buy, and how will you decide what to carry during rides? Also, did you buy a rollup carrying case or the fanny pack you posted or something else? Really like that Wolfman bag that ChinaV has.

    cheers

    I bought the fanny pack showing in my previous post. Didn't get it yet, at a friends place in north KM.

    This is the toolkit I got. SATA set #09001, got it from a shop near by for 289rmb. a stupid impulse buy. Cheaper on TB and can even get a bigger set. try this http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=9999094462 . The nice thing about getting SATA tools is you can always buy extra sockets or parts, still same warranty. I can always get more parts if needed.

    On the road, I figure I will not need socket sizes other than 8, 10, 12, 13, and 14 .. So I'll only carry those. I'll post more photos of my kit all packed and on the bike. So far still missing tire levers. I did a quick taobao search and couldn't find any tire irons. Maybe I'll just buy the regular bulky ones and tie them somewhere on the bike as they won't fit in the pack. I think ChinaV didn't get his levers in China.
