I'm confused. You say bike lanes are necessary, then say it's impossible to create them.
FTR, I consider myself a vehicular cyclist and am against seperate bike lanes

Why carry a multi tool?

Seriously. In my experience, 99% of mechanicals are flat tires, the rest are things a multi-tool can't fix- frayed cable, broken saddle bolt. Yes, I carry one; but I've never used it.

rusty/corroded fasteners- should I care?

Screws around the stem, headset, levers etc. I seldom get caught in the rain, and when I do, I immediately dry & clean everything off. Still, some fasteners deteriorate. sup?

How important is it? I would think 'fat' bikes would be hard to balance; I never see wheels w/weights of any kind used for balance. Am I the only one who does this?
