I also write--again, not always well. I share what I've published with my students, but I also share what I've written at all steps of my own writing process, asking for their input. To be perfectly blunt, it's my willingness to make sure I have a teacher model of so many writing assignments that makes me a stand-out teacher in realm known as Language Arts.
On the road, live by the Golden Rule, and leave a place of stay a little better than found. They have tools, air, oil, grease, and water. Tire shops can be difficult to find outside of the US. In Europe they are not allowed to advertise or have a large entrance sign. See more details at the following link, Tires, Tools, Lubes, and other help In the field, any lubricant is better than no lubricant Engine Oil, Transmission Fluid, Grease, and as a last resort: Sun Screen works as an oil substitute in an emergency.
The most convenient time for chain and drive-train maintenance is in the morning before biking or in the evening after bikinghowever, Wax, Grease, and Heavy Oil usage often requires application when it is warmer outside typically in mid-day.
WD [Water Displacement - Formula 40 composed of mineral oil, mineral spirits, and gasoline according to their website - invented to prevent rust and corrosion on Atlas Rockets] is a Penatrantwater displacer, and a light duty lubricant. The problem with Penatrants is that they dry out in a very short period of time and this is good.
Avoid using WD to lubricate chains except when there is no alternative or one is trying to work out some rust. If used, wait an hour or two, the penatrant will evaporate and then use appropriate oil or grease lubricant.
Mineral Oil is also a Penatrant. Sewing machine Oil and light weight oils will not last very long on a bicycle hours. It still works but one may not want or need the cleaning component which is probably a Penatrant or Penatrant like compound.
Penatrants take about 24 hours to evaporate without external acceleration and the presence of a penatrant can keep higher viscosity oil s from adhering to tight friction components where lubrication is most needed.
For plastic Oil Bottles with plastic straw tube s: Cut the plastic tube into 1. These plastic straws seem to be easily lost on tours. For long range touring, drop some solder into the cable about the area of the pinch bolt contact; Have a mechanic perform this task or do it yourself.
It helps to prevent strand breaks and insures that the cable will last longer. Another solution is to grasp the wire just before the end cap in order to perform any cable pulling for a derailer adjustment.
If possible, as soon as one picks up a tuned bike from a shop or you just tuned it perfectly OR as soon as it is opportunemark the juncture of the derailer and frame sometimes at two different places, using permanent marker [black or silver] such that the stroke of the mark touches both the derailer and frame at the same time.
Such an indicator is invaluable for re-aligning a derailer in case of damage, repair, removal, or replacement on the trail or at a foreign bike shop. See next Marking Bullet.
One should mark the juncture of the seat post stem and the seat post tube such that the stroke of the mark touches both the stem and tube at the same time. Do NOT use a Scribe to mark anything on a bike unless it is a mark for cutting or trimming a component.
Scribes are metal pointed markers used for to mark material for cutting. If one is shipping and reassembling bikes also see Bike Shipping for more shipping detailsbe sure to mark other key component meeting points like the handlebar and stem.ReadWriteThink couldn't publish all of this great content without literacy experts to write and review for us.

I have been on hiatus from doing out-of-state teacher trainings recently for two reasons: 1) I'm writng a book on teaching writing, and 2) I'm preparing to retire from the classroom at the end of the school year.
