New tools day. It’s just like new bike day but more accessible and easier to fit into a drawer.
This gallery is an assortment of interesting new tools that have hit the market in recent days/weeks/months, many of which are just begging to be featured in Cool Tool Tuesday. I’ve been fortunate enough to get hands-on experience with all of these and figured it was time to do a little show-and-tell presentation to the class. Unfortunately, I got a little carried away and overshot the time (word) limit, so I’ll be back with act two next week. Block Calibrator
This is my fourth gallery of new tools in the past 12 months. The fast pace of development in the cycling industry means new tools to work on increasingly complicated bikes are never far away. If you haven’t already, check out parts one and two of what’s new in the world of cycling tools and what new tools were revealed at the Sea Otter Classic.
Shameless pre-show advert: If you haven’t already, also be sure to check out my two-part deep-dive on torque wrenches. If you already own such a tool, then the second part is the one you need to read – if you don’t learn anything, I’ll personally refund your admission fee.
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.
