How about a multitool, or even trail tool(ie including pumps, canisters etc) section?

I'd expect most people to carry these things either on their person or the bike so be interesting to know what's lightest.

i posted something similiar to this and got laughed off the board. The Park MT-1 is light and has a lot of the tools you'd typically need. No chain tool though. oh and its pretty cheap, i drilled a couple holes in mine to further lighten it several grams.

At 58grams, I carry the Topeak mini 6:

It's small, cheap, and has most of what you will need - with a pair of Park tire levers.

I don't know why there wouldn't be a listing for these... Seems it's an essential piece of equipment that can vary widely in weight... On bikes we spend big money to save weight?? Maybe everyone on this board already knows what to carry?? :?
