RL’s Riding Tip

If you ride a fixie, make sure you bring a small adjustable wrench in your bag. This wrench will come in handy when you need to remove your wheels to fix a flat or to throw at a passing car. JK! Don’t throw anything at anyone…

    An even lighter alternative is one of those Surly “Jethro Tules” (which doubles as a bottle opener) or the classic “peanut butter wrench” made by Sugino or Campagnolo.

    There’s nothing worse than getting a flat and only having allen wrenches to remove a bolted-on wheel (don’t ask me how I know that)!
