old tube tool


I finally got around to tightening the headset on "Totally 80's." It's been loosening on its own as I ride and I've been hand tightening on the fly. I don't have the perfect size wrench for it - I think maybe it's 1-1/8 or 1-1/4. So I use the adjustable wrench which can mark the nut. I used to use a rag to protect the nut. This time I used a piece of old inner tube and it worked much better.

Great idea with the old tube. We learn something every day.

Thanks, Midnight. It's amazing how many uses old tubes have! I hope I'll find as many uses for myself when I become an old tube…
