Tech Talks Presented by Park Tool is a monthly video series hosted by Park Tool's own wrench whisperer, Calvin Jones. The series covers the A to Zs of some of the most prevalent repair jobs, with the seventeenth episode telling the story of a mechanic versus a troublesome cleat.
Your cleat bolts get the short end of the stick. Not only are they constantly in the mud and dirt, but they're also out of sight and out of mind on the bottom of our shoes... until one of them becomes loose, that is. It's only then that we see how one seemingly small issue can put an end to an entire day. Calvin is here to explain how to keep that from happening.

Pour out beer = Find new mechanic.
and he's right, yes beer is good but not whilst you are doing a professional job then driving a big van/truck home. let's face it if you were a pro and your mechanic f*cked up because he was half drunk you would be super f*cked off.
