    TKC80 are the very softest sidewall tire obtainable.
    The 17 inch rears will nearly fall onto the rim. ( USE LUBE )
    The 21 inch fronts mount and dismount almost as easily as a bicycle tire.

    any idea where I can pick up a storm tool tube? Can't seem to find any retailers in the Uk but I'd gladly order from abroad and pay the shipping

    as per loutre's suggestion, mine were from thetooltube.com

    just a word of warning though. If you place them like I did and have heavy tools in them like I did/do then over rough terrain there is a good chance that the attachment points of the tooltube will break over time, if you attach them vertically i.e. attached to the back of a pannier then you shouldn't have this issue.

    here's a pic (sorry for me being in it :-) ) where you can see that I am supporting the weight of the tool tube using duct tape and this works just fine but doesn't look quite as pretty :D

    Ha! I just picked this up last week because I needed the ETorx socket to get my front brake calipers off to replace my front tube. I've been putting each tool I use from this kit into a separate tool pack/bag to build up a kit specific to the bike. Any tool I use on the bike now just goes into the zipper pack & will eventually go under the seat.

    Yeah, about that zipper pack. Anyone have a recommendation for something to stash tools in for underseat goodness? I cut out the tabs for the first aid kit holder, as outlined earlier on, and actually have a collection of various "tactical" pouches but none of them seem to fit. Would love a tool roll that could live here, but every one I can find is at least a foot long, and the area here is only about 7" or so.

    Well im looking at the size for a pouch cause I was thinking of getting something like this to put my tool in and store it under the seat where the alarm system goes. I know I could stop being lazy a figure it out myself but the bike is in storage!!!

    I can't remember the details now, but a couple years back at Home Depot they were selling a "set" of three zippered pouches ...cheap... I bought them on a whim.
    The smaller two stack neatly on top of each other in the alarm pocket area.
