You know, you guys say that but I still find a bizarre number of mandatory-bicycle-bits on the trail most years. Like parts where I'm a bit suspicious of their provenance because they're kind of key to a bike being rideable. Like suspension linkage bolts, or flip-chips, or ~ half the clip-in guts of an HT pedal.  I'd guess there's a whole next generation of riders learning from their mistakes.  Heck, just the other day I ran into some gents looking to borrow a big ass Allen key so they could properly torque their headset. HUH?! Yes, they were short one headset spacer. I've seen the exact scenario so many times I usually carry an extra 5mm one but I hadn't restocked it since the last time I gave one out.
