Spurcycle, an American company best known for its wonderfully detailed bicycle bell has now released details of its latest product, a small titanium multi-tool.
The tool follows an increasing trend of multi-tools that make use of interchangeable tool bits, meaning a single driver can cover the full spectrum of tool sizes required. The tool features a compact body, with a sliding handle design that can be used in either a T-form or L-form for additional leverage.
Said to weigh 90g, the tool is machined from Grade 5 titanium. It’s made in California by industry parts-manufacturer Paragon Machine Works in California.
Wrapped in a slim fabric case that’s also made in the USA, the Spurcycle tool includes chrome-coated S2 steel bits in sizes spanning 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, T10, T25 and Phillips #2. Designed to fit inside a jersey pocket, the case also offers space for emergency cash or glueless patches.
The ‘Tool’ is available for pre-order direct from spurcycle.com, with a retail of US$69. It’s expected to be available before Christmas.
