Use your toolkit…

Use the same tools on the road and at home...

Use the same tools on the road and at home…

The only way you can be sure you’ll have the tools you need on the road is to use your bike’s tool kit at home. I know that’s a pain because the travelling tools are all nicely bundled up and you’ve got more tools at home that are easier to get to.

Don’t use ’em!

Break out the on bike tool kit and use it for every repair you would want to be able to handle on the road. If you are missing something or your puny wrench won’t break a bolt loose better to find out at home than 50 miles from nowhere.

    I really couldn’t agree more! Also, make sure you swap out a tire once or twice using your onboard spoons. Since I moved everything into a tool tube, it’s gotten easier sometimes to use the tools on the bike, than what I have in the garage.
