Need some help here with ideas.
I want to be able to store some tools, just the very basic items a tube and some patches etc on the bike.
I used to ride from where I lived in East Vancouver to UBC there and back every day, that is a 32 Km round trip, I had a basic bag of stuff I took with me in my backpack. I could leave nothing on the bike, as it would be stolen for sure.
Here in Tokyo, this is not such a big problem. I don't carry a backpack everywhere I go, so I am worried that one day I'll have a flat and not have the means to fix it. The other day I went to my chiropractor and then to a close (ish) Super Viva Home, the trip was about 18 miles total, and I was thinking that if I did get a flat, I'd be in dutch. I want to store the tools etc on the bike, but not in the typical soft under the seat pouch, I want a hard plastic locking box, not too big either. I figure I'll attach it to the side of my rear rack, as I don't plan on using Panniers any time soon
Something that I could even put a small padlock through would work.
Should be watertight, not 100% but it will be exposed to rain on occasion, so the drier stuff stays the better.
I've looked at small toolboxes, but could not really find something I liked. I did find one that is about the right size and is sealed but has no means of locking it. I'm thinking of putting on the bike, and then locking it with big zipties, the ones you have to cut off. The tools inside will not be worth a lot of money, and I know I cannot make it absolutely tamper proof, but making it a lot of work for some cheap tools, well that should be good enough, here in Tokyo.
Small, about 5" long, by 3" wide and maybe 1 1/2" deep
