Front forks here as well for lack of more thought/laziness of putting more thought into it. Although I have been thinking of the kidney style toolbox.

Tool bag? What tool bag? Does a Leatherman count as a tool?

On the forks I guess. Is two worm clamps, a bungee cord, and a tire gauge considered a tool bag?
