Not to be that guy, but I think you're both right. I stopped carrying a first aid kit because most of the stuff in there is for treating superficial sh*t that I'm just going to ride home with. I currently carry some painkillers and have tape wrapped around my pump.  On the other hand, my brother, Crash Test, had a spill a while back that required stitches to his elbow and included his handlebar entering his full face and doing some damage. Steristrips would have definitely helped us manage our exit. (the worst part, exit wise, was a crank arm to the thigh would result in a massive charley horse. He just had to suck that up and ride down with one leg straight but heck - that's mountain biking).  I'm definitely thinking of packing some supplies in my handlebar where they'll keep dry and out of mind. Hopefully will never use them, but they could come in handy.
