People going past are likely to already have minimally functional bikes, so stuff for making adjustments might be useful.
Adjustable spanner, Hex spanners for adjusting brakes / seatpost etc.
Another vote for halo track hubs
If you have vertical dropouts, an eccentric eno hub is a nice solution (with 130m, 135mm options).
Alternatively, halo track hubs have a rear axle kit available for 120mm to 130mm conversion.
There will be a reduced number of threads enaged with the freewheel as the ones engaged with the lockring are smaller and left handed. It should work anyway.
I use Boeshield T-9, though given boeing 737 MAX debacle and subsequent Starliner issues, I'm having second thoughts. It seems to last for ages.
I'd agree. Maybe they used their own sprocket profile formula.
halo aerorage is a suggestion. The rims and spokes are so-so, but the hubs are great.
That looks like novatec hub - missing the aluminium shield that the halo hub has, but cheap for an off the shelf wheel.
No idea if either would work with a 32mm tyre.

if it is slipping, it is going to be over the rear sprocket, not round the front chainring.
Keep it indoors.
