Exclamation Fav. Tools to work on your bike?

I would like to know what everyones fav. tools are that you use when you work on your bike.

Mine is a cold beer, cuss words, and a flat head screwdriver.

Torque wrench, cause if you crank down on a bolt too much, you'll cause MAJOR damage.....My NEW favorite tool in general, is the Chain wrench by vise grip. Think of it as a pair of vise grips with a bike chain...fully adjustable for gripping large objects. I just did the timing belt/valves on my chevy metro and let me tell you, that chain wrench is PRICELESS! Couldn't have done the job without it.
Check it out at www.irwin.com. ( they bought the vise grip name)

Sledge hammer, but a power nailer takes a REALLY close second.

Isn't that called a cheater?

With the age of my bike, a can of rust loosener is key. I have stock in the company now.

Hammers and zipties.

Look . . . the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances, we guard you while you sleep. Do not fu|< with us.

WARNING
If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler
