Levers and Tools

“Got everything?”

Shouting this at a broken down rider when traveling at 25+ mph cusps on useless.

Out of ear shot, no wordy response will be heard. Trust me on this.

Having a bag under the saddle which is short of proper equipment leaves rider stranded, or nearly so.

There I was, friends rushing past, trying desperately to pry off my tire sans levers. Eventually, the task was completed.

Without the proper tools, a task can take forever. Simple and quick turns to painful, complicated, frustrating and slow.

Pride sucks.

When help is needed, be clear and concise.

Yell, “Help!”
