Wink Re: Alternative Spoke Wrench

In a pinch i'll just use my teeth.........I got tough teeth....grrrrrrrr! As we know, spoke nipples come in various sizes, so when on the fly I'll atleast carry a tiny 3-4" Cresent (adj. open-end) wrench too tighten or loosen spokes if needed. The castle nut is a great idea and if you strip the rim of tire, tube and rimstrip you can usually just use a flatblade screwdriver.

I wouldn't use my teeth on anything but food.....they're not that tough.....

A sense of humor costs nothing, why don't people use them more often?
