I'm currently on this:
Giant Defy
For off road work I've got a Specialized Hardrock 29er.

For years 11-16 I rode my dad's old 1950's Raleigh Superbe Tourist. He'd had it from new.  It had an amazing front Sturmey-Archer Dynohub so as you rode it generated electricity to power the lights, and a rear Sturmey-Archer 3-Speed.  Brakes were linked rods, none of your fancy cables here. Sadly an idiot cousin clearing the house took it to the tip - they're going for about $200-300 US.

So many sweet bikes! Love that cinelli! I have a few too although my favorite is no longer with me. It was a Japanese made randonneur with curly handle bars, plenty of rake in the forks and carried big loads. I could ride it all day and it took me many places, up through the jungles and hills of laos and then to the massive passes of yunnan to Tibet.

In no particular order

First Aid kit
Chain breaker
Some spare chain, around 10 links
Spare tube
Glueless patches
Bike multi tool
A couple of $5 notes, great to buy a snack if needed, also have been known to fix a side wall tear to keep the tube in place
Pump
A few assorted nuts an bolts
Plastic bag to keep the phone in

kinda like the question "what kind of spares and tools should I take in my 4wd and camper?"

the answer for this is also... "it will depend on how remote you're going" and what your personal level of bicycle mechanical expertise is.

For an all dayer in the Blue Mountains, or a day out in Glenrock (up Newcastle way) at a bare minimum I'd carry:

a) 1 x spare tube + patch kit (yes, even if you're running tubeless)
b) 2 x tyre levers (to get the tyre off)
c) mini pump or C02 canisters (I usually have both)
d) multi tool with most of the sizes for your own bike on it.  So all allen keys and torx if required. Plus, make sure it has, and you know how to use, a chain breaker.
e) Chain joining superlink (talk to your local shop)
f) ductape and zipties
g) basic first aid kit

I'm also partial to:

h) lightweight rain jacket windproof shell (I've spent the night in Glenrock once with a stuffed knee)
i) Leatherman
j) snack/energy bar
j) my phone/camera

I also had my wife make up a (larger than you actually need) bag in a bright blue fabric with velcro top and a velcro strap to wrap around it. This is handy as it gives you a place to lay tools out on the side of the trail when you're working on your bike. The bright colour makes it less likely that you'll lose something. You wouldn't believe how many tools, phones, pumps and more I've found on the side of the trail over the years from people fixing a problem and forgetting things...


For my tour up Cape York and along the Gibb, I also carried...

a hyper cracker (let's you remove your rear cassette to replace broken spokes on the drive side)
spare spokes and nipples
spare bolts, nuts and washers
spare gear cable
spare folding tyre
chain lube and grease
FibreFix kevlar spoke

ummmm... I'm sure there is more that I can't think of now...

3 bikes for me:

1999 Cannondale F700SL - pretty much stock apart from XT crankset and brake levers, LX shifters and a Hope/Mavic wheel I built 14 years ago that is still round and true... oh and pannier rack for going to and from uni with

2000 Kona Kiluea (in the UK) - was originally a 1995 Kona Fire Mountain until I snapped that in 2000 and got "the only frame we have in your size is a Kiluea or (something in alloy)" as the warranty response. Built up with whatever bits were floating around at the local bike shop from swap overs, so it has SRAM ESP7, hand me downs from the Cannondale and whatever else was lying around.

Unkown Specialized Roubaix - picked up from the local buy swap and sell page, awesomely fast road bike, but best of all big enough for me (I'm 6'4" so finding a road bike is a bit of a challenge, very few places have them in stock in the big sizes)

Wife has 3 bikes as well:
2006 Scott hardtail: Her first proper mountain bike; probably got a frame size too small, but does make it a good chuck around bike.

2011 Giant Trance: She throws that around...

Unknown age Avanti Road bike - again from the local buy swap and sell page, this time good because it was a small enough frame.

She also cheats, and has a Yamaha XT600... big bike for someone who is only 5' tall...

Photos to be found later...
