Jersey.

If your going to crash, you're going to crash anyway so man up.

I use a waterproof plastic bag that fits my iPhone, ID credit card €50, a tube, C02 and Lezyne head and 2 loose keys and it takes up less space then having a water bottle in the same jersey pocket.

In my other 2 back pockets are my Speedplay cleat covers and sometimes a rolled up pair of arm warmers and my cycling cap.

I rarely ride with water which is why my aero road bike has no cages so sometimes I have a bottle back there as well, yet nothing feels bulky.

Rule #5 man, rule #5.

get yourself a set of keeponcovers for speedplay. they work always on, even when pedaling.

Interesting, thanks. Do you use them? Know if they are soft rubber like the Speedplay version? I have white floors...

I recently made the cheapest and slickest looking bag in my point of view.
All I needed was some cloth, duct tape , glue and a velcro strip.

Will add a picture after my ride.

Ciao :D

I made this out of 1oz cuben fiber...it's expensive stuff but very durable for it's weight, which came in at 15g as seen:

As designed, it can also "expand" to fit more and attach to the seatpost/rails instead of only rails.

I've made a seperate thread on this previously if you want more info.

Here is my saddlebag. Not exactly slick, but it does do the trick ;):

yes, i use them, they are rubber, but kind of hard. your floor will remain totally white.

In case this helps, hadn't seen this mentioned:

There's some options to get your CO2 cartridges out of your pockets or saddle bags,
this would possibly let you run a smaller saddle bag for "everything else"

Advantage:
puts cartridges lower on frame

Disadvantage:
extra 11g (oooh)
aerodynamics? (pfft)
aesthetics (but if you put black rubber covers on the cartridges or plasti-dip them, they disappear better than shiny ones)

C02hold

or integrated in a bottle cage

Genuine Innovations cartridge cross,
weighs a little more, but can hold up to FOUR cartridges
