Subject: [CR]7 MM Hex

I see now that we have emptied our trash in our email box from the last two days of nonsense we are back to bike talk. The 7 mm hex (allen wrench) has always been curious to me. Hardly anybody sell it in a package and it can be bought only separately(See Sears Dept. Stores). Maybe it has to do with the # 7..very lucky number. I have several of them and I have a piece of yellow electrical tape wrapped around them so I can find it immediately. I always wondered why the Italian used this unique size for the stem quill. The No. 7 .... Hhmmm maybe it is a Catholic, Italian, Pope thing. All I know is I carry one with me on every ride. Call me superstitious.

Happy New Year,
