A lockring tool with a center pin keeps it from popping out of the splines under torque.
If I believe that my current tires have enough miles on them to last the trip, I carry no spare. If I don't think they'll make it, I carry one spare and have someone send me an additional tire as soon as I use the first spare.
I pulled out my medic alert tag on its stainless steel chain. The charge nurse turned a ghostly shade of pale. I had been wearing this tag around my neck day and night for over ten years just for this day and it failed.
When I was discharged and got home, I decided at this point in my life it was appropriate to wear my heart on my sleeve. I ordered a bright red Road ID wristband and have worn it every day since both on and off the road.
@DaveB I have always used 12 links and not 24. Is there a reason to do 24 versus 12 links. I can measure 12 links with the chain on the bike where it is under tension.
24 links means I have to remove the chain to measure for wear.
I am of the school where I don't clean my chain. I wipe it down after every ride and lube when it "talks" to me.
