    Fridge – Wober’s Sandwich Pal, Wasabi Sauce (

    Bench – A multi-tool that came standard with a 1974 100-year anniversary edition Goricke touring bike. Sold the bike, but kept the tool, works on 8 different metric sizes of nuts/bolts and is made from one piece of stamped out steel.

    Budweiser reminds me of fat-bottomed girls & GNAR Lube is the only lube touching my bikes (even the anorexic ones).

    It has been said that beer is a social lubricant and cycling is social and add beer to something already social and things get even more slippery. Now add snow and fat bikes to that slippery occasion and all you can do is slide. No friction, smooth and easy. I think we have everything covered nicely.
    As to personal preferences: Keweenaw Widow Maker Black Ale and T-9
