Bike tools you can’t leave home without.


If you ride a lot then you know that it is always smart to carry bike tools with you just in case. I finally got tired o carrying multiple wrenches and pliers “just in case” , so lately I’ve been looking for a way to have all the necessary tools with me without the weight of a toolbox in my bag.  Now I do believe I  found a perfect combo for every bike rider out there.

First choice is of course is Surly’s Jethro Tule. It is made from stainless-steel, then polished to a high luster. It combines an offset box wrench on one end with a leverage-enhanced bottle opener on the other… Yes bottle opener, nothing like having a frosty beer at the end of a ride.
