comment What should I carry on day trips for emergencies?
That's about covers my kit, except that I still carry a hand pump (catalog.alamedabicycle.com/product/…). I find it works quite well even with presta valves, and the high volume/high pressure modes actually allow filling a new tube to a reasonable air pressure in no time.

comment Non U-Lock that can be mounted for carrying?
I wouldn't lump the cable locks with the heavy chains. Since the chain doesn't need the metal to be flexible, it can be made from much harder and stronger steel than cables. The weakest part in chain locks is usually the lock itself, and if you get a tiny U-lock, that's pretty secure. Might be as heavy as your bike, but it is much better than a cable.

Cable locks take about 5 seconds to cut with a small tool, I wouldn't lock anything I care about with one of those.

Might also be worth noting that since it folds so small, it might fit in much more places than even the smallest U-locks.

comment Why are battery-powered lights so popular?
I actually have 2 sets of lights for 3 bikes - all the bikes have mounts for the lights installed, so depending on what I'm riding that day, I can just toss the lights on that bike. No need to readjust the mounts.
