Dave CardarellaHi David, I suggest carrying a few extra screws of various sizes. They sometimes come loose, fall out and get lost. Also an extra USB cable, sometimes they just get flaky. Chain lube? Safety pins?

David AlbertTo Dave CardarellaThanks Dave! The addition of screws (especially screws for the racks because they are bearing the load) is a great one. I will also probably carry an extra USB cord. Also I had written chain lube but damn auto correct had changed it to chain link, lol. So, that's been fixed. Thanks again for your insight and taking the time to read my great list. :) - David
