Crip Tip: Use a Tool Wrap

City streets can be hell on your chair. I’ve had screws rattle loose, foot plates drop, and tires pop. The last thing you want to do is be caught unprepared when something on your chair fails.

To avoid being caught off guard, I keep a small tool wrap¬†under my chair containing spare tubes, a C02 inflator, allen wrenches, and some tire levers. Chrome Industries makes some great tool wraps that fit perfectly under your chair (especially if you have a fixed‐frame chair with a nice crossbar underneath it). It’s secure enough that you can leave it under your chair and it won’t get in the way. It even stays put when my chair gets thrown in the back of a cab.
