    My new bike is coming with a dropper post (this will be my first time using one) I guess it's not good for the dropper post to have a saddle bag wrapped around it so I'm wondering how everyone carries spare tube / tools ect.

    I never ride with a Camelbac unless its a epic ride -

    Thanks

    Apparently people try to pull that off with all manner of straps on the frame.

    Small hydro pack. Get one with Trampoline suspension for airflow.

    some companies are smart enough to include a purpose built spot for this.

    Their stuff works great, I also use the tube tarp to give a little abrasion protection to the tube and whilst my phone is too big to fit in their FONBAG now, I still use it as a riding wallet with some cash, card, ID and simple first aid supplies.
