Like an idiot, I managed to lose my multi-tool on a ride in Santiago Oaks last week. And then I lost a water bottle in Las Virgenes Canyon on Monday.
Picking a new multitool got me started fidgeting with the contents of my saddle bag. I switched things around a little, and I'll be carrying about ~140g less than before. I'm sure it'll make all the difference in the world on Saturday.
I also swapped out my quick release seat clamp for a regular clamp. It's not like I'm going to be adjusting my seat height mid-race, so why carry the extra 20g? It also gave me time to clean the post & seat tube and apply fresh grease. I'm hoping that'll cut down on the creaking it's been doing lately.
One more spin, then two days of rest, then... GO!
