“Behold” Flat Tire Kit

While very few cyclists can boast having their own SAG vehicle to follow them on a ride, the rest of us have to contend with finding somewhere to stash our cycling essentials. 

Alas, putting them all in our jersey pockets, leads to the dreaded pocket sag, while a saddle pack doesn’t look very stylish, and gets lots of wheel spray. And, riding without said essential is risk not worth taking. 

However, there maybe a solution that satisfies both fashion and function for even the most vein of “roadies” – called the Behold flat tire kit.

The Behold easily mounts to any bottle cage mount, and can carry all of the essentials needed to fix a flat tire and then some – in stylish and compact way. 

To learn more, check out Behold’s latest Kickstarter campaign. 

 

A better way to carry your emergency essentials

Behold is the world’s first flat repair kit cage. It lets you carry a simple flat repair kit (tools, CO2 cartridge and spare 700cc or 29er tube) on your bike’s frame. Unlike a seat bag it’s completely out of your way.

Behold mounts on your frame

Behold attaches to your bike’s water bottle cage mounts (braze-ons). The down tube is the preferred location but some riders like to mount it on their seat tube. Touring bikes may have mounts below the down tube that Behold can use.

Need to carry a water bottle? Just attach any water bottle cage (not included).

What’s wrong with seat bags?

Lots of things, at least to us. Using a seat bag was what prompted Allen Young (Tallac’s founder & chief designer) to design the Behold. Allen hated commuting with a seat bag:

Using a saddle bag to carry a small flat repair kit can drive you nuts. Contents rattle with each bump. Straps sometimes come loose. Worse yet is when seat bags rub on the soft inner thigh panels of your riding shorts they’ll wear out quicker. What cyclist likes replacing an expensive pair of lycra cycling shorts?

Meet the Kargo bag

Kargo is a rugged ballistic nylon bag designed solely to carry a flat repair kit. It’s interchangeable with all of our carrying systems. So you can use the Kargo bag that comes with your Behold in our Kargo Water Bottle Cages.

Bags come in two sizes:

The Kargo Road Bike Tube Bag fits a 700cc road bike tube and tools.
The Kargo Mountain Bike Tube Bag holds a 29-inch (29er) tube and tools.

Here’s what fits (snuggly) in a Kargo bag:

-Small mini tool
-Tire levers
-16g CO2 Cartridge with inflator head
-A spare tube: 700cc tube fits in the 7.5″ Kargo Road Bike Tube Bag
-A 29-inch (29er) tube fits in the 9.5″ Kargo Mountain Bike Tube Bag
-Patch Kit
-Cash or credit card
-Car or house key
