I know we don't like to think about road rash and other things that can happen. But it makes a lot of sense to be prepare. Most First Aid Kits are just too big to carry on a bike and not really made for what happens when you fall or if you are like me when you make roadside repairs.
The Adventure Medical Cycling/ Road Rash kit comes in a small waterproof bag that will slip into a bike bag and not steal all of the space. It certainly isn't complete but has what you need most often and is something you should keep with that multi-tool, patch kit and tire bars you carry.
They are on sale now at Cambria Bike for $5.95, just go to Road Rask Kit.
Have you been to Cambria Bike's Bargain Basement yet? They have a great deal on Avid Mechanical Disc Brakes and Levers. Yes they are '05 version but they are $69.95 instead of $119.95, 41% off ($139.95 at Nashbar).
How about a CATEYE HL-EL500 POWER OPTICUBE LIGHT for $32.95 instead of $42.95?($39.95 on Sale at Nashbar).
This looks like a good place to check before you buy bike parts and accessories.
You can find the Cambria Bike Bargain Basement at Cambria Bike then select Bargin Basement from Catagory Drop Down (note this is a new link as of 5/21/2006 old link no longer works).
