Help identify Mavic Ksyrium tools

I got all sorts of funky little tools with my Ksyriums. Someone want to help me identify some of them?




I know this star-shaped thing is the special spokewrench because of the pattern of those faces on the inside of the hole.




I think the paddle thing is a cone adjustment tool but it also looks like the other end is a tyre lever. is that correct?




I'm not really sure what this round thing is. It looks like the slots fit the bladed spokes but I'm not sure what its purposes is.

just a guess, but maybe the bottom tool is used to hold the spoke while tensioning so that It doesn't turn? just a wild guess here.

The cone tool is also a tire lever. The splined tool is your nipple wrench and the slotted tool is to hold the aero blade spokes in line(If you do not use it there is a good chance you will break the spoke because it WILL twist and they are alluminum.

You know I've had this stuff for over two years now. My wheels have not needed any adjustments by me personally so I've never had to touch them although my bikeshop might have done something when I last brought it in for a tuneup. Thanks for clearing up the mystery.

What wood? Those tools were placed on top of some grilled sockeye salmon.

What is really strange is the most expensive wheel, the kiss-arse-ium has a cheap plastic cone wrench that will break if you have to use it (Personal experience) where as the next down wheelset (Cosmo?) has a simillar tool but it is made out of metal... From the feel the metal one looks like it wouldnt shear off its pins like the plastic one...

BTW... The tools are:

1) Spoke wrench
2) Cone wrench
3) Bladed spoke plyer (to keep spoke from winding up when tightening)

Here in the Seattle area (and for most of the US Pacific Northwest), fresh sockeye, king, chinook and copper river salmon are simply wonderful.

Hmmm... I could build this into an case-argument to present to my CFO (read:wife).

"Honey, I need to buy some Mavic Cosmos because it comes with higher quality tools to use on my Ksyriums."

I'm sure she'll understand.
