Something like a nail through the hole could be used to hold it against the spoke.  :think:

Anyone here used the LM bit kit holders as tyre levers?

Not for my tires... I use pretty heavy duty Park Tool levers for mine...

I sold those two bikes,  $180 for the Giant and $360 for the Specialized. So, a tidy little profit on each and well needed funds for the trip.

There are a couple gloves behind the yellow rag. Leaves just enough room for a phone and a few gels.

Still need a small container for oil.
And maybe a mini sharpie to mark the punctures with.
A shorter stem, wider bars and a more comfy seat are also on the future wants list.

Thought I had put some in with some old school patches but maybe with the tube as backup I decided not to bother.

A comfy seat (but not a grandma one) and a pump are on my list too.
I would bike more if I didn't get a sore arse after 10 minutes.

What?!? No B133 Self-vulcanising fluid?  :o
I just checked my current stuff - it's just called "Rubber Solution". I guess for when one has a rubber problem....  :think:

Brought home a folding bike yesterday.

On my way home from work, I was only 1km away from home when I spotted it for sale at the side of the road.
Took it for a test drive and noticed that the clutching system is set completely wrong.
Took the bike back and offered €20 less after showing the issue.



I wanted one for a long time but never spared the cash.
Perfect for getting groceries and bread when on a campsite!

Going to clean it up in a few and see if I can set the clutching system right.
If not, my dad said he could do it. :D

With it came a lock and shopping basket too. There's still a warning sticker on the pedals and some protective foil on the front mudguard.

Nice! I also use folding bike to commute every day. Going to the train station, no need to pay for the bike, and going to work from there. Brilliant!

One benefit, my old pants fit again  :D

My 2 cents but it´s over 50 years of bicycle experience:
 
Choose a quality brand with a good dealer network and spare parts available.
Good bikes don´t come cheap.
Not so good bikes are nothing but trouble.
