Origin Story

Hi there, I’m Alissa, and I’m on a mission to help more people adventure by bike.

I’ve solved a lot of problems with my bike and gear during 20,000 miles on six continents. I know which sneaky little items are worth their weight in gold when something weird happens in the middle of nowhere, and I want you to have them in your bag when the time comes.

While building my own emergency kits for bikepacking trips I noticed that most of these small items come in unnecessarily large quantities and cost too much. I created the Bikepacker’s Fix It Kit to help you get the right supplies at lower prices with less waste, and to take some stress out of packing and trip prep.

Common Questions

Is this all I need to carry for bike repair?

No, you should definitely still carry a full repair and spares kit with bike tools and spare parts to fit your particular bike. This kit focuses on the universally useful supplies you may not have thought to pack or can’t easily buy in the right quantities.

Is everything in this kit compatible with my bike?

The supplies in this kit are bike-agnostic, with two exceptions. The Presta-Schrader valve adapter is only useful if you have Presta valves, and the sandpaper and alcohol wipes are intended for disc brakes (though they may have other clever uses too).

Can’t I just buy all this stuff on Amazon?

You can, and maybe you should if you plan to do a lot of bikepacking and need to refill your kit from time to time. But most of these items come in larger quantities, and buying them on Amazon will cost you significantly more than the cost of this kit. So think of this like a “starter pack,” a helpful way to learn what you need and a more affordable way to get it in the right quantities.

What’s your refund and return policy?

I want you to be completely happy with your purchase. If you’re not, please contact me for a full refund.
