    They feel like they’re gonna break. I’m gonna assume they’ve never been removed. Thing a little shock therapy from a rubber mallet would help?

    Pretty bad when you can’t get past step 1.

    Hate the feeling when you get a false start on a project. Was all set to do cruiser front brakes and found out I was missing a 54mm socket :/
