Title: Not in the kit
Post by: Tim Kingham on March 19, 2020, 01:09:08 pm
I always take a large adjustable and not in the kit I bolt it to the bike (the spanner for that bolt is in the kit!)
I also bolt a handlebar lever to the bike and a can of tire filler that all keeps the kit package smaller
after a lot of trials I have found the best place for the rear trials number is on the side of a plastic rectangular oil can I cut this off so that it comprises that side (trimmed down to number size) the base and a small amount of supporting side walls this I then mount on the seat or rear of the bike well out of the way of mud etc. if I fall off backwards the can side deforms as I plunge by and then springs back.
