Better than a stick!

You need to carry them. You like blue. What else do you need? Won't mess up your snazzy rims, and won't cut up your hands. Yeah, you need 2 for those nasty Easton rims too - and you might break one while cursing and yelling to just get over the damn rim woulda!! - so better carry all 3. If these aren't enough work on your hand strength and technique - or buy metal levers.
