 For the tubeless locknut issue I carry the little pliers from the one up edc tool. I took a file and lightly serrated the jaws so they grip it. Works a treat.

 YES little pliers can be useful, but when is this tubeless valve issue going to have a better solution?

 @aljoburr: I am not sure what I'm missing.. never really had a problem with my tubeless valves or getting the lock nut open by hand.
Trying to think of a better solution.. no idea. Maybe I'm just not creative enough

 @aljoburr: put a wing nut on that valve!

 Really looking forward to a review on the Vitus bike. Hoping it’s a decent bike to recommend for someone getting into it. Geo looks good.

 What's going to depreciate faster; one Huracan or 20 RM Instinct Carbon 99's?

 I carry a Leatherman Squirt, specifically for the pliers, to remove the valve nut if needed. The knife blade and bottle opener are nice to have, also.
