  5. reighn replied to the thread Do you always carry a spare inner tube with you? and a pump?.

    Yeah you're right. that's gonna be the best thing to do, if you going to travel alone. You need to be prepared enough and expect the unexpected things to happen. If your bag is big enough, you should bring all the things that you will need for a...
