When I did it for him, with a few tweaks of the wrench, he was amazed... SImple enough, but if you carry the tools, you should know how to use them.

Nowadays the cell phone is the 'magic tool' that can get you out of almost anything, unless you are riding in some gorgeous place--that has no coverage (like Skyline Drive, in Virginia-- coverage is spotty at best)
