    Wrong order. Air pressure can change, a lot. Air up before you ride.

    I've gotten in the habit of always throwing my shock pump and a full set of allen wrenches in my gear bag before every ride.

    Which incidentally, I thought they were the original Bondhus Ball drivers that I paid an absurd amount of money for in the '90s. But after @canadmos mentioned something about only being able to find the Chescos, I checked. Been using the Chesco set for decades it seems and apparently can't tell a difference. Of course this set was probably bought in the late 90's or early 2000s. No idea if the new ones will last.
