    I now find myself a little disappointed each time I go for a long ride and don't see rcannon by the trail.

    And it happened again.

    "Why are you asking?"

    "Because you are sitting beside you bike."

    "What about sitting next to my bike makes you think I need help.?"

    "Look I am just trying to be polite. "

    Nooooope.

    Yes. You're being a crank.

    You're being incredibly rude. We should be thankful that people are showing a small touch of altruism and making sure a stranger is ok. I know a rider's whose life was saved by a bystander when he started feeling weak, sat next to his bike, and had an MI that progressed into cardiac arrest. But for the bystander kind enough to check on him and initiate CPR, he'd be dead. So, show a little bit of gratitude and stop being a jerk.

    (I don't have many posts here, but I've been reading this forum for years)

    This is a problem. I carry lots of bike tools with me on rides, but crank tools aren't among them. He'll have to go to the LBS for that.

    I've been working on my curmudgeonly skills for a couple of years now that I'm in my 50s and can justify it, but I'm nowhere near this level yet. Something to aspire to I suppose, but you're setting the bar awful high.

    The only tool needed to fix this sort of problem is the tool atop the saddle.

    I noticed that no one has posted to this thread in a few hours. Is everything OK?
