I gave out tubes this summer; one didn’t so much as solicit a thank you and the other was equally engrumbling but I did have a long conversation with myself about some of the stuff I’ve been carrying for years (to fix other people’s bikes | only ever used to fix other people’s bikes) and how far I’m willing to walk/roll/etc in the event of a rare mechanical and I ditched a pretty significant number of tools.  I guess if I have one of those failures I can revisit my decision while I walk out but at this point if I’m riding close to civilization the only extras I carry beyond basic tools is my emergency blanket and extra clothes.
