    Don’t need to use tape to attach the tube to the frame. Feels very unnatural.

    Why not just use an old toe strap and tie the tube to the back of your saddle rail?

    For the CO2 cartridge, cut an old inner tube, insert into seat post, and wedge the co2 cartridge in between the tube and the seat post. Hold it in place nicely.

    Next zip tie the cartridge release value to the toe strap/spare tube combo. Now when you want to ride, just grab the bike and go. No dorky saddle bag.

    Tubes and tools strapped to the back of the saddle rails causes clearance problems when bottoming the bike out with the dropper down. The tire will hit your items.
