Mine is a cell phone (and some sealant in my tubulars, probably about 50g worth).

Same for me as pictured above, but I've got a couple things stuffed under the rubber bands: $10 bill, one small Allen wrench and a piece of paper with my health insurance particulars.

Nice! I was wondering if there were lighter options out there.

I'd thought about patches and that topeak mini carbon pump but it seemed like it was a hastle to get any real psi out of it (from the reviews I've read).

Or even ditch the levers as I can change tires by hand...

@hetchins, Prost!

Yeah I put mine in a little tyvek sleeve made from the envelopes from USPS...

It keeps the crud out and is breathable so I don't feel a hot spot if kept in my jersey's pocket.

My kit is nothing special, just a spare tube and a Topeak Pocket Rocket Master Blaster, but I don't need tyre levers on my Ksyrium/GP4000S combination

Pump is 104 grams, conti tube 106 (I don't use lightweight tubes for training).

Im thinking of ditching the levers in place for the park pre glued patch kit as it's more useful...

all this fits in the red bag in the middle back pocket

1 tube (rolled in a paper towel)
3 adhesive tube patches
1 tire patch
Lezyne HP Drive-size medium (I could drop 30 grams by using a smaller pump but I like having the extender hose and it actually pumps to a reasonable psi.)
quick connect chain link
swiss tech utili key
2 ti allen keys (metal parts rolled in a paper towel)
hand wipe
