This 165mm straight awl is the perfect poking tool. Open up that freshly cut shift housing. Scribe a line in a steerer that needs to be cut. Clear the dried mud from cleat bolts. Try to snag the end of the cable housing you're fishing through a frame to help guide it out. Poke and prod to get a closer look at something. Point out the obvious to your colleagues. Etc.
