People might be interested in replacement axles too. With fatter dropouts on my new bike, I kinda regret chopping mine off to sit flush on my old one.

I would add, make sure that when the lockring is tightened it actually makes contact with the cog, as some cogs are narrower than the threaded portion of the hub on which they sit.

Stretch well before you ride. Learn to skip rather than resist. Even a long, smooth skid should be easier on the knees than resisting, for that matter.
