    New Must Have Tools

    From the Wolf Tooth Website: "The Master Link Combo Pliers is a multi-tool developed to provide functions that are not on a typical multi-tool. It is designed to be light and compact so you can carry it with you. This tool serves as a tire lever, valve core remover, valve stem lock nut wrench and master link pliers. It also provides storage for two master links so you are always be prepared on the trail. Magnets hold the master links securely in place and self close the tool."

    Nice topic for the weeks to come where more maintenance will be done and required. Here's my personal one to complement that.

    A year ago, I was looking to pad up an order to get free shipping and decided to treat myself to an Abbey Bike Tools Crombie tool to remove the cassette lockring (https://www.abbeybiketools.com/produ...-sided-crombie)

    In the end, tool was more expensive than what I was purchasing but that tool turned out to be be very enjoyable to use. Seems like not much but not having to get the right wrench and/or get a wise grip out just to use the standard lockring tool I think is worth having.

    Anyhow, my $0.02.

    Oh yeah, this one is going to be in my trail kit soon!

    Finally got this after flatting on thin-skinned Nobby Nics so many Goddamn times (which I finally replaced anyway):

    I know Dynaplugs are rated higher, but these are by far cheaper. =)

    Wolf Tooth Master Link pliers looks brilliant. I literally just bought a park tool master link plier this past weekend, but think I will get this wolf tooth for my riding pack.

    Yeah, that wolf tooth tool looks good. But I'm not sure I want to spend $30 just to replace things I already have. But on the other hand, it does look sick.

    Faced with the same dilemma, Ive been putting together a second, compact, tool kit that lives in the truck, while the big kit lives at home, only coming out for races and what not.
    THis Wolf tool looks perfect for the compact truck tool bag.

    You know, I forgot an essential element of my tool bag. A spare pair of reading glasses!

    These are awesome! As a flashlight addict, I saw a display in a feed store, of all places, and hadda have one. It sits on top of my fridge, waiting for the next blackout.

    I recently got one of these: https://www.rei.com/product/109855/p...kkina-headlamp Amazingly bright, and only $20.

    Thanks for the note on that awesome WolfTooth tool. I think I need one of those. My contributions:

    1. Pedro's Tire Levers are not really new, but so much better than the rest.
    2. A shop-grade breaker bar and a real torque wrench (expensive) make the frequently required cassette and bottom-bracket work a breeze.
    3. DynaPlug Air is truly amazing for racing or when you just want one small thing to guard against big leaks.
