Hi BikeForums, I hope everyone is having a good thursday morning!
I wanted to run my new design bike tool by everyone for some feedback. A disclaimer, I have recently posted the project on a crowdfunding website, but won't include the links here so I don't spam you guys. If you want the link you can PM me. (there are some fun videos on the campaign!).
I am actually looking for some good feedback from the community - I am based in Atlantas so anyone in Atlanta if they are interested in checking it out, let me know I would be happy to meet-up!
At any rate, I am a designer and biker form Atlanta, and my goal on this project was to make a great bike tool that has some real, high-quality tools but is extra slim and can be stored right inside your phone case! What I came up with is a phone case that has a swappable tray containing the tools you need for quick bike repair. All the tools are 440C Hardened Stainless, and very durable. Here is the list of tools:
- Two tire irons
- Pedal/Axle wrench
- Flathead screwdriver
- Phillips screwdriver
- 6 Allen wrenches (1/16, 2.5mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm)
- 4 Box wrenches (5.5mm, 7mm, 8mm, 10mm)
- two spoke wrenches (.127 and .130)
- Three glueless tire patches
- Roughener for tire patch application
- Bottle opener (for the end of the ride!)
Here are some photos of the product, it weights 80g total, but packs a lot of tools into a super slim space that is really convenient to carry. Ultimately I would like to add a handlebar mount accessory if my crowdfunding campaign is successful so you got your nav and tools all in one! Anxious to hear the community's feedback, thoughts and questions!
