Bicycle Glossary - X

X-Wrench - A wrench with four socket openings arranged in the shape of an X.  The sizes are typically 8,9,10 and 11mm, and 12,13,14 and 15mm.  These are easy to spin, and designed for quick removal and replacement of bolted wheels, adjustment of seats, brake pads, and anything where a slightly bulkier wrench has room to swing.

Working on bicycles is dangerous if you do it without considering consequences of bolts left loose, known problems which are ignored, things which should be replaced but are glued instead, and so on.
