    To remove a freewheel, put the tool in a bench mounted vise, put the wheel on the tool, and turn the wheel counter clockwise. To install, turn the wheel clockwise. Pretty easy.

    When I ride with my phone turned off, the battery doesn't go down a percentage point after 4 hrs! When I ride with it turned on displaying ride data mapping, it goes down a lot faster.

    Protein is 4cal/gm. Any calories in excess of that is either fat or carbs (sugar). For an egg with 6gm protein, 24 of its 80 calories are from protein and the remaining are almost all from fat.

    I've have seen one on a bike, and like it's shape. I like flat front to back and slightly rounded side to side. I've been riding Fizik Antares but this looks like it might suit me better.

    Flat rate is highly variable. I haven't had a flat in the past 3k miles, but there have been times when I got 3 flats in one week. It's the nature of randomness.
