I've (finally) gone the other way for most rides. I even ditch my bum bag as long as I'm riding on inserts that run flat well - and right now I'm on Octamousse - which tested great for this purpose - and Flat Tire Defender, which look to be capable in this area but have yet to be certified in the field. Which leaves my EDC lite tool and a Neutron Components Ultralight first aid kit strapped to both bikes. My plan is to use OneUp's pump carrier when they are back in stock (although like Andrew I've had issues carrying other pumps this way) and stash some sort of bacon strip device inside and that will be all I'll carry for most local riders.  So far so good and I love riding without a pack. It gets a little trickier when I have a test bike without the EDC and I'll need to remember to swap the Neutron kit but I can easily carry a multi-tool in a pocket and set up the tester with some appropriate inserts. This is a work in progress, and not what I would do for long rides that are a long way from any support, and I will likely gradually add items to the bike if I decide I want more tools for every ride.  \#everybikeshouldhaveSWAT
