The one negative of pockets is sweaty phones and wallet for me. Too much stuff in jersey pockets can be uncomfortable and the jersey needs to be fairly snug or stuff flops about the jersey hangs down to your ass. I do like the swat bibs though. I tried a race face rip strip but keep blowing the zippers. Not bad for comfort though. Small ass packs are OK too. I have a Dakine that I put phone wallet tool pump and tube in. A little food maybe. Bottle on the frame. Ditch carrying Stan's though. Carry a tube. You have sealant in there now and if that can't seal the hole more sealant probably won't help.
Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.
