For pads genuine are much better than other brands in many people's opinion. Also the genuine pads are handed so make sure you install them correctly.

I noticed that. I installed genuine in the front and Mintex (which I had laying around) in the rear.

If any of you posers had actually camped, you'd appreciate the importance of wet wipes.

funny these are in my truck 24x7 - also a pack of cleaning wipes (which work great for getting off oil etc, then follow up with the wet wipe.

Tube and Patch Kit Recommendations

I've always run tubeless so I don't know much about tubes. I want to get a spare tube and a patch kit for my Baja trip. Do the tubes come in sizes? Any brand to recommend that is higher quality? Any patch kit to recommend? I have an ARB patch kit for the tires but nothing for the tubes.

No.

If you've never changed tires by hand don't plan on learning how to do it on the side of a Mexican byway. You can come up and change the Michelin Deserts with Mousses on my bike by hand if you want a lesson in frustration.

Carry a tubeless tire repair kit and an air source along with a second spare if you are expecting problems.

You would need tire levers long enough to get the tire to drop into the center of the rim so you can work the tube in, some baby powder, and a way to secure the tire while you are jumping up and down on the lever. Then if you get another puncture in the tube, you have to get the bead off again, drop the sidewall into the recess in the center of the rim, fish out the tube, patch the inner tube with any old patch kit from a reputable supplier that is dated (not ancient and dried out) and remount.

Or you can do what everybody who lives in Baja does and carry a spare tire (or two) and stop at any one of the thousand tire repair shops in every small town (some even have a taco stand attached) and spend $5 to have your tire repaired and filled with air.

Point taken and I'd rather not be trying to swap out tubes myself. I figured it wouldn't hurt to have it with me even if someone else does it. Perhaps the shops down there don't have tubes for my tire size or perhaps they have some low grade tubes? Who knows. I have an ARB tubeless repair kit.
