1.75 bikes in one box

Bike parts, tools and my actual singlespeed are all packed. I have enough extra parts to build a second bike (minus a frame and fork, etc..). Kind of need to pack this way seeing as we'll be on the other side of the world and in the middle of no where. Can't just run down to the next tent and get a chain or what have you.

lots and lots of stuff. Its gonna get crammed into this box.

what do we have?

~ extra grips
~ extra set of disc brakes
~ extra set of brake rotors
~ three extra sets of brake pads (new & used)
~ one pair of tires
~ five 29er tubes
~ tube patch kit
~ Quart of Stan's Tire Sealant
~ extra set of quick releases
~ up to 30 zip ties
~ leatherman tool

~ full metric allen wrench set
~ Mavic spoke wrench
~ vice grips
~ torx bit and 1/4" drive ratchet for discs
~ two extra sets of chainring bolts

~ 32T and 34T front chainrings (32 is installed)
~ Brave Soldier chamois cream
~ container of chain lube
~ container of Shimano disc brake mineral oil

I don't know if TSA will let you fly with Stan's. I hear Mango Lassi works in a pinch though.

It's OK, I'm really not that ignorant. If I were Indian and one of my Indian pals were flying to the states to do a race, I'd make the same joke but replace "Mango Lassi" with "Mayonaise".

Have fun man, kick ass.
