      I think you're reacting to the reverse of the 'temp is always normal' gauge.

      It seems pretty TDC-normal, until it's not. It masks normal exceedances, and then it pegs 'hot' when you get out of...

      When I'm changing wheels, I've learned to grab the spokes away from the calipers, as they become pinch points. Clearance is fine, but my fingers won't fit and they...
