Getting practical (just a little)

Folding 2-piece tool with 15 functions

If a day before yesterday I had a relaxed morning then yesterday I became a little practical. I did shopping for my bike! Now I have my first bike computer (need to read instruction and comprehend how to install it on my bike and how to use it). I also bought a bike tool kit (31-piece set). I’m a real novice at all these technical things. So all I can do is to list all the small things I have in my tool bag: folding 2-piece tool with 15 functions (6 socket wrenches, 1 hex socket, 1 slot screwdriver, 1 cross head screwdriver and 5 box spanners (with spoke spanners)), a tube patch kit (a piece of sandpaper, several repair patches, rubber cement and repair instruction, of course), 3 plastic tyre levers2 light bulbs (wondering what to do with them), and a cleaning cloth.

I’m really glad I had an opportunity to learn from my older brothers how to use a screwdriver and box spanner. And hope I will manage to use them in case of need. There are a lot of other things I need to get for my bike (like the head/tail lights and a cable lock), but this time I want to quote Scarlett O’Hara: “I can’t think about that right now. If I do, I’ll go crazy. I’ll think about that tomorrow.”

    Hmm, I need to get a spanner for pedal lock! My tool kit doesn’t include it. 😀
