Not having the right tool on hand is a real drag, but you don’t want to weigh down your pack or bike by bringing half your workshop along for rides. The folks at JET Roll are continually trying to help you find the best solution with their compact rolls that carry Just Enough Tools (yep, that’s what JET stands for) for any type of ride.

Their latest is the Spectre roll, the company’s offering for all-road or gravel riders which features a new matte metallic fabric. For mountain bikers, the new Wild Weasel 2.0 Joker Black Ace and an updated Thunderbolt ‘Warthog’ model provide options for conveniently carrying ride essentials.

Spectre

Jet Roll 2018, Spectre with stuff

The Spectre is JET Roll’s new road/gravel model for 2018. With its three pockets, this compact roll can carry one tube up to 700x43c, a CO2 pump head and air cartridges, tire levers, and a multi-tool. The Spectre bears a different look than previous JET Rolls as it’s made from a new material that’s durable yet lightweight, has a bit of stretch, and boasts a unique matte metallic appearance.

A single button fastens the roll shut, and to keep things looking flashy the button is cut like a crystal and colored jet black. The attachment strap is made from premium nylon with a stainless steel buckle. The Spectre comes in two color options- Matte Gunmetal Black or Matte Steel Blue Metallic. It is available online for $65 USD.

Wild Weasel 2.0 Joker Black Ace

Was digging the wild weasel till I saw it mounted under the seat. I don’t like the idea of exposed tools. Nothing like using tools packed with mud, water, or other trail debris…

This is stupid; a Silca seat roll premio is $48 has a BOA to secure it to the saddle rails and swap bikes easily and is far more attractive. I’ve always preferred my Silca Eolo wallet which is filled with a 16 oz; everything needed to change 2 flats on the road and a tool (its easier than a seat pack since I use different bikes frequently). I just duct tape my spare MTB tube and a big 20oz to the saddle rails and throw the wallet in my back pocket. Everything that can get messed up with dirt/debris is sealed up in my back pocket and the tube and co2 is held in place for free.

I bought one. Why? I don’t know. In a moment of sheer profligacy I was like a pregnant woman amongst bars of chocolate. Totally irrational and acting against my better judgement, I just had to have it, and quickly. The cost of these things is just insane and I regret my decision. It doesn’t protect the tools at all and is a pain to use on the mountain bike when compared to the likes of the Ortlieb Micro, for example.

I think it’s partly the jazzy names, the good looking fabrics and the great product photography that drew me to these but basically they’re totally impractical and I haven’t used mine once. I can be a mug sometimes.

After having splurged so much money on mine I was close to hating myself but I have since been on a number of therapy sessions to resolve matters. So this isn’t entirely a tale of woe.

Since my recovery I’ve been on many bike rides and have been as happy as a clam.
