As satisfying as it may be to crush the despised calculus textbook that the bookstore wouldn't buy back under your front wheel to prop up endless winter trainer sessions, it isn't the most stable choice and is definitely going to get you some looks if you have it in the pre-race warm up tent. Stay a bit more under the radar and stabilize your front wheel with the easily transportable, blissfully equation-free Blackburn Trainer Block. This block raises your wheel about 2. 75in and is compatible with almost any wheel size. It also features a spot to hold a skewer underneath and out of the way, which gives you a few extra minutes to make sure your number's pinned straight instead of frantically searching the car for a loose and rolling race skewer. Alternately, you're able to stow the trainer skewer away and use it to transport the block neatly in the trainer as if it were a regular wheel axle.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
