    I like Too Tall's way, is neat.
    Personally I prefer to fold it "long" so to fit in the jersey pocket, I'm for the "as less as possible on the bike", I barely tolerate the small Continental tool bag (which is barely enough for an inner tube and two levers, although I can fit a lot more )

    An FMB27 will never fit in a Tibi bag. Get a Tufo or a Servizio Corsa 22.

    I've always rolled my tubs like TT.....the only thing is these days is that the glue no longer sta,s tacky on a spare as they've removed some chemical or somethi.g from all glue productions thatsvalso why when mounting a new tub it's gotta be done quicker than in the past so the glues can glue on......duh! In the old days if the glue had dried out to tacky they would both bond well together thanks to the now missing chemical. Stop rabniting Savine....right that's my two bobs worth.

    Other than the two Christian mentioned, any suggestions on inexpensive spare that will fit in the Tubi bag? I rode this afternoon with it in my pocket and that's more bulk than I need back there. I got snacks and pumps and other crap to carry! I tried it around the neck but it requires a lot of concentration to keep it there.... image-1676439034.jpg Toe strap at first blush seems pretentious: " hey look at me, I'm carrying a fancy tire." But I may come around.

    Rolling was a big help to compress it but it wasn't made for that bag, or vice versa

    I always carry the Pastali/Velox glue, is perfect "on the field" as it goes one quicker than the Conti one, which is my fav.

    what he said.

    A conti sprinter 23 (used) is a fine spare. They are tough as nails and it seems like everyone has a pile of them in need of repair.

    Tell me again why you can't strap it under your saddle? In bad weather cover it with a sock.

    Here's a nifty new tubular carry bag I recently purchased, a new copy of the old Cinelli bag. I like it better than just strapping the tire to the saddle because the bag protects the tire better from the elements in inclement weather.

    Whoops, excuse the orientation; not sure how to rotate the pictures!

    I get it, and I'm not Italian. I just don't care for a lot of stuff on my back. I keep the pockets free for stuff I need to get to, like snack, camera, money. Having a whole tire back there is a bit much.

    As for the toe strap, I think it would create a lot of discussion among the club I ride with. For example, "What ya got there Bob, an entire tire?" "We're not gonna wait for you to fool with that thing if you get a flat, ride regular tires like the rest of us." Some of them are opinionated asshats (one guy asks me every weekend why I thought I needed certain brakes on my bike) and, yes, I should probably look for others to ride with. I'd rather be discrete about my tire choice.

    Smaller tire on the way, not so much because of the bag issue, but it does seem silly to keep a nice tire scrunched up as a spare.

    Regarding Arundel Tubi.

    I have the Tubi myself, and find it a bit roomy if you have a small emergency tire. Just bought the Arundel Dual. It is shorter, and a wee bit wider, and will not rub on the seat post.
    Managed to squeeze in a Schwalbe 21mm tubular. Two CO2 cartridges, Lezyne SV10 multitool, tire lever and KMC quick connect link.

    Bob, as The Tall Wise One intuited, I'm one of those folks with a pile of cast-off Conti tubulars, and as a bonus they are in good condition, no need for repair. I can drop off a couple at Signature for you or pop them in the mail.

    I wrote this a while back when I was doing 'that' blog - it's now been re-purposed by a mate for his blog: Fold that tub! | ELEVEN vélo - remarkably similar to TT's first post.

    How can I refuse?! That's very kind of you. I'll probably be up at Signature later in the week, since the Seven is getting some diagnostics done on the Di2.

    I use Velco cable strap instead of tape. It's just easier to fold back the old tubular.

    This thread just opened a world of room in my Arundel bag! By the time the Conti Gatorskin spare relented to my demands, my hands were cramping, but it was worth it. Oh, I used velcro, too. The thought of gummy electrical tape did not seem appealing.
