We’re once again in the midst of industry tradeshow season, and with that comes a flurry of new cycling products. 

Of course, that includes new tools, so while I’m well aware that I promised the next edition of Cool Tool Tuesday would focus on tool storage and organisation, that will have to wait. I have some cool new tools to tell you about! As the title suggests, this is part two of my coverage of new cycling tools for 2022. Part one pre-dates the Cool Tool Tuesday series but is no less relevant. 

While some of the tools covered are designed for DIYers or to go on a ride with you, many others are aimed at the professional mechanic working in a workshop setting – these are likely to simply serve as an interesting insight into what is out there. I’ve been fortunate enough (or my wallet has been unfortunate) to personally test a number of the tools covered, and in such cases, I aim to offer a quick bit of insight into how well they work. Ok, on with the show (and tell). 

Note: A number of the tools mentioned in Cool Tool Tuesday are not sold through traditional cycling channels and can be hard to find, which is also kind of the point of the series. Access to the tools covered will be easy for those in Europe and the United States. Use a search engine to find the products mentioned.
