    I finally used the 1.5mm Allen for something other than a pick.
    Replacing the battery on my Fox digital shock pump. Four ridiculous tiny screws holding it together.
    I can sleep better now.

    After coming precariously close to losing this cable & housing deep inside Mrs Jm2e's seat tube last night, this bent spoke was 1000x better than any tool in existence. Pretty sure I would have needed the shop to save my ass if I hadn't hooked it.

    A lot of tools I made do with existing non-bike stuff I had laying around but bike specific park cable cutters made cable replacement way easier

    Not bike related... but, I do love a good impact. This has made working on my vehicles a much more enjoyable experience.

    Same thing a month ago with my Cane Creek (pretty sure it's the same rebranded pump)

    Don't be embarrassed. That is a very nice tool and I like the idea that the tube goes past the valve stem into the tire. That keeps the core from getting all gummed up with sealant.
    Way better than the cheap plastic Stan's unit and at minimally more money

    Yeah you just rotate the head. Like most Park stuff, it's pricy but once you get used to it, you can't imagine using something else.

    Bailing wire. As essential to life as duct tape (and cheaper, easier to bend than spokes).

    Everyone with disc brakes needs one of these (I was too lazy to take a picture of my own)...assuming you have a Park truing stand.

    Park DT-3. Makes precision-truing your rotors easy. Ok, it' still a bit of a a PITA, but you can consistently get them true to less than the thickness of a sheet of typing paper. Which is exactly what I use to decide when I'm done: when the gauge is not rubbing the rotor at all, but it's so close I can't slide a piece of paper in there, anywhere on the rotor.

    Hmm. On a surf trip so I canít go into the garage to see if my park stand has a place to mount one of those but I love the idea. Just donít remember my stand having a bar to clamp that on. How does it attach?

    The bar comes with the DT-3 tool. From the DT-3 page:


    Can this be used with a TS1? How far down the truing stand leg is the mounting hole? And what size is the hole?

    Best Answer: DT-3 can only be used with the newer TS-2. TS-2.2, TS-4 and TS-4.2


    https://www.parktool.com/product/rot...ing-gauge-dt-3


    However, if you're motivated, you could certainly use it with a TS-1 (or other brand of truing stand) - all you'd need is to drill a small-ish hole. The bar is secured by a screw/washer on the other side of the arm (the hole in the arm is not threaded - the machine screw's threads engage threads in the bar). Here's the hole, in a TS-2.2 (which is what I have):

    Here's a pic of the attachment screw/washer (unmounted, obviously):

    Should work with 27.5, since that's standard roadie wheel size. 29's would probably work too, but maybe only with the tires off (fats: same, I'd guess).

    Hmmm. I might be motivated enough to drill. I assume I have a TS-1 but it could be a TS-2.

    Good info skizix. Thanks.

    I attached some extensions to mine so I could fit 29ers with tires on.

    Not with tires on. But you can get extensions for the dropout arms, and longer rim gauges that clear bigger tires. I'll take a pic when I get home.
