    Nice score.

    I was eyeing up the EDC system big time and went down a deep rabbit hole reading about packless riding options. I concluded that riding with my pack was not that bad of a thing, especially considering that it has saved me in a couple of bad falls directly onto my back on some crazy steep climbs. Seeing your EDC score, I am re-re-considering this again...

    Valentines Day is just around the corner.

    Lol!!!

    What did you think of the install for the EDC?

    Now that it is installed, what is your initial thought of the tool?

    I've considered it as well but didn't like the idea of spending money for the die.

    Looks nice installed!

    Packless wasnít an option for me for ~4 years because of no water bottle holder.

    New bike has a cage, plus i put the EDC topcap in 2 bikes, plus inflator/tube/CO2 strapped to frame.

    I got a dakine hot laps in case i need another bottle and throw my phone in there. EDC in their pump could be a good option too.

    Also hacked a tubeless plug kit into the CO2 threads of the EDC

    I did the same thing, hacked up a $5 plug tool and it just threaded right in.

    Install was pretty straight forward, but Iíve tapped some other things before. Just turn in, turn in, turn out, then repeat.

    I like having it for rides. I like that everything is together an easily accessible. I havenít had to use it yet. The tool seem pretty light weight, so hopefully itís up to the task.

    My LBS guys all carry the tool as well, except they all use the pump mounted to the frame and have multiple holders for each bike.

    I have used the tool alot, and I seem to be the go to person of my riding group because I have it easily accessible now. Tool is holding up really well. The chain breaker is a little awkward to use, but it gets the job done.

    Taping was very easy, I just did a half a turn forward, then a quarter turn back out to clear the threads of metal chips. Just keep doing it until the tool bottoms out. Make sure the tap has some oil on it, chain lube works fine.

    You had to buy the cutting tool though, right? You didn't just have a die that size laying around? Or is it a tap, I don't remember. Either way though, you had to buy it?
    Isn't it a $50 tool on top of the bike took component?

    $30 tool, its best if you get some buddys to get the edc that way you can split the cost of the tap

    Yeah. You need the tap kit if youíre going to install yourself https://www.oneupcomponents.com/products/edc-tap

    It takes quite a bit of force and guide for the tap is essential.

    I used an rei code and got the tap for like $25. Used it on both my forks and Iím assuming at least one friend will want it installed as well.

    I can see a $25 charge. That's pretty reasonable. Especially for you since it's been used for both bikes. Good deal.

    Thanks for the updates man.

    Wife got me a Wolf Tooth bling kit for my Norco, and I also got a new long sleeve jersey for bike park days.
