      I’m looking for a place to buy a Tube Weenie, but I haven’t been able to find anything. I haven’t checked at my LBS because I just heard about them a day ago, and I haven’t had a chance, but I didn’t know if there was a place to check online? Thanks!

      Wow, I didn’t realize that not many people knew about them. A TW is a pouch that mounts on the hub of your front/back wheels that lies within the spokes. In it, it holds a spare tube. It is really nice because they don’t take up any space, don’t weigh much, and it is always nice to have a spare tube when your riding. I will try and find a picture and post one if I can. Apparently nobody knows. Is there any way that one of the Site Moderators would know about a TW?

      I actually think I have seen one of those on the trail, but wrapped around a seatpost.

      Just put it in a seat bag like everyone else. Easier to get to, holds more stuff, ect.

      I put mine in my hydration pack, and put another in a seat bag for longer rides.

      I like to ride fairly aggressive on some of the trails that I ride and the seat bags that I’ve used haven’t always been ideal. I like the TW because it is out of the way. Its also nice because I don’t always have to remember to pack a spare tube because it will always be on the hub. I could also put it on the seat post, I just have to figure it if I like it there or on the hub instead. Thanks a ton for that link! I really appreciate it.

      +1 for the hydration pack.

      Its also nice because I don’t always have to remember to pack a spare tube because it will always be on the hub.

      I personally just keep all of my gear in my hydration pack–it never leaves. That way, I don’t have to risk forgetting anything.

      I rarely ride with a pack anymore, and when do I have three to choose from, so I use a saddle bag.

      The TubeWeenie just seems like it would be a big pain to get to when you need it.

      I always carry a tire tube, pressure gauge, and tire patch kit in my large seat bag. I am not crazy about wrapping a tube around a hub like that. It must be a real pain to remove it when you need it.

      Its simply a matter of preference. Its really not that difficult to get in there and get the TW out. Thanks for letting me know where I can get one!
