    every lift assisted park should have one of those midway and at the bottom.

    for the most part I try to just carry those general sorts of things on me. I don't usually have chain lube, but I do try to keep two tubes, my tire iron, and my metric allen wrenches on me, as well as the emergency pump I keep on my bike. Sure, it takes up a little space in my pack, but it's so worth the just-in-case situations. Once I got a pinch flat on the trail and I had a new tube on it and pumped up to pressure in like 15 minutes and I was off again.


    I do like the idea of having these at lift parks. I've never been to a lift park yet, but the idea makes sense.

    I'm guessing lift parks don't have bike pro shops at them?

    Pah! Amateur!....When I ride street, I don't wear a pack... I put 2 tubes, a 15mm wrench, an adjustable wrench, one tire lever (don't need it, but a friend might), a minipump, an allen key set, and a chain tool (and my cell phone and wallet) in my pockets. That right there is an argument against tight jeans on street riders.

    And in addition to the tubes and tires, it should have derailleurs, hangars, shfiters...
