On a tangent to the whole hip-pack/bike storage thing -- as people seem to combine those with various strap solutions, which usually do not cover your stuff -- how can one possibly keep the tools/tubes/sandwich in a good condition over the course of a season or so if it gets covered in gritty muck all the time. Every time I strap a tube to my frame it becomes the forever dirty tube. Maybe it's just me or everyone's smart and stash their slightly more sensitive material somewhere safe ("in" the bike, a hip pack or a closed bag), but I never got this figured out to the point where packless riding would be a possibility for me in my local climate. And have I mentioned velcro is like a magnet for gritty dirt?
