Outside: A sliding back-and-forth between rain and snow.

Inside: Time to clean out the box of parts + tools that live at home. Time to clean out the tool box that goes on the road.

Here's what's in my tool box this spring. What's in yours?

Nah. That was productive, man. It is so hard to find time to do the "unnecessaries".
Nice tool set by the way! Spokes and the whole nine yards.

Thanks!

I do most of my own repairs short of shock rebuilds and caliper mount refacings.

The tool box is my security blanket for road trips.

I've used it at the trail head more often to fix bikes for friends or new acquaintances than on my own bike. That's a good thing.

anything special you recommend for fork maintenance?

I just bought a boatload of parts to get my bike ready for when all this damn rain/snow goes away.

depends on the fork. i would get good snap ring pliers. a good hook/pick set is handy too for fox forks with the smally rings and cir clips. also grind down the chamfer of sockets for use on the top nuts

Ahh, you found a weak point.

There's a 19mm socket that fits my old Marzocchi fork, but I'm not sure it works on the Fox on my new/used Blur.

No spare seals for the Talas yet. I assumed I could use some transmission fluid from the car and avoid carrying shock oil, but that may be a bad assumption.

I haven't fished out all the spokes for the old bike yet, but I did get some for the rear wheel on the new bike. Have not yet needed to do a field replacement.
