This looks like an excellent kit. I might add a pair of vise grips. While racing an enduro about 30 years back I was able to not only get out of the woods but finish the race after I lost the front axel nut. Found the axel. Clamped vice grips on where nut would normally reside, wrapped aircraft wire around the handle of vice grip and fork tube then electrical tape to hold in the closed position and prevent spinning. Worked like a charm. Wish I invented the idea but I had read about it somewhere.
