ABOUT THE EPISODE

A great person out there in listener land sent in a suggestion to talk with people about removing stripped bolts. He said he is a pro at removing stripped stuff as he has an extensive background in cars and the usual cussing that goes along with them. Tune in to hear some tips for removal plus some guidance on the “final step” if you have deemed the entire project to be a complete loss.

THIS EPISODE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY EPIC RIDES
ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Matt took a question from Just Riding Along and converted it into an entire episode of The Trailhead. Matt ropes Ben into helping him get everything packed into this episode about going out of town. Listen in and take notes if you have ever gone on a trip with "that one guy" who didn't have what he needed to make sure your trip wasn't a waste.

------------

A LIST OF THINGS TO PACK

-Toolbox
-Shock pump
-Tire pump - floor style
-Tire pump for on bike use (CO2 can get spendy.)
-Spare tubes - a lot. Paying retail on the road when you have them in a box at home is annoying.
-Lube
-Rags
-Water bottles
-Tire sealant
-Spare tire that works tubeless
-Derailleur hanger - one for every bike in the group. Attached to your hanger should be the appropiate speed quick link for trailside repair if need. You probably will need these at the same time. Attach them together with a bread tie.
-Chain - one for every speed in the group
-Spare chainring
-Cooking supplies/food ready to eat.
-Pour over coffee setup
-Trailmap
