The Stove Tube: Waterproof, Smell Proof and Out Of Your Panniers

Stove TubeIf you carry a multi-fuel stove on tour then you’ll know that it can sometimes be quite dirty and smell of fuel.

For that reason, a lot of cyclists aren’t crazy about keeping a stove in their panniers.

World bike tourists Dave & Bethany think they’ve found a solution to this dilemma: a stove tube. Watch the video to find out more.

    Great stuff, now where can I get a tube?

    Great idea! Looks like your basic 3″ or 4″ PVC pipe from a hardware store just cut down to size with a couple of caps put on. I’m sure the “welded on” part just meant some heavy duty rubber cement or something similar.

    One of the things I love about world bikers is the ingenuity that seems to sprout of necessity. WonderfuL!

    The idea is not bad but it also more weight. I’ve got my fuel bottle in a bottle cage between the front wheel and the down tube. When I’ve ordered the bike I said that I’d like to have two holes for a bottle cage on the lower side, too. There is the neck from a plastic bottle on the top of my fuel bottle for protection. It works since more than two years nicely. The stove itself I store in my pots in a front pannier with some other food and utilities. The smell is not too bad for me.

    The Bike Bddy is fantastic for carrying a fuel bottle on the bike frame. It just slots on without the need for a bottle cage. Also great for securing a flask or over sized stainless steel water bottle.

    Sweet idea. I just felt so bad when he dropped the fuel bottle roughly in there, with the fuel line sticking around in there. Outchie.

    And the best thing, you can use the left over petrol fumes and the PVC pipe to use as a spud-gun 😉

    This is an interesting idea, but really I don’t see the need for it. For over a decade I’ve been hiking, backpacking, cycling, backcountry skiing etc, with a multi-fuel stove (the MSR International), always keeping it in my backpack or panniers, and have never suffered from any leaks or smelly food or clothes. I usually keep my stove in the pot which keeps it separate from the rest of the gear, that might help. I keep the pump with the stove, in the stuff sack, and not in the bottle, since I figure it is less likely to break that way (a friend once borrowed my stove and broke the shaft of the pump). After use, I always make sure to shake the stove out, and clean it off lightly with a bandana that I keep with it for that use only.
