VeloSolo Track Tool for 15mm Track Nuts - limited number of hand polished now in stock

Our best selling take on the classic Campag 'Peanut Butter' tool. Each VeloSolo wrench is individually CNC machined from an 8mm thick block of aircraft grade heat-treated 7075-T6 aluminium alloy for durability and strength.

It's designed purely for one thing - tightening 15mm track nuts (not usable on crank bolts). No bottle opener, no hex keys - just a tactile and ergonomic piece of tool jewellery. Made entirely in the UK and precisely machined for 15mm nuts only.

Anodized in choice of eight colours; black, silver, gold, red, blue, green, orange and magnesium bronze. Now in purple too! Laser engraved. Approximately 30% lighter than a Campag tool at 75g. Length is 158mm, slips easily into a pocket. Note: compatible with virtually all dropouts except for some 'cowled' types.

New! We have a very limited number of hand polished tools now available!

£23.95 (anodized), £29.95 (polished)+ UK shipping at £2.25  EU £4.25 (add £2)  WORLD £5.25 (add £3)
Note: red, blue, green, black & anodized silver currently out of stock

Pedro's Trixie Tool

Very useful multi-tool from Pedro's designed especially for the fixed wheel rider. RRP £24.95. All the essential tools in one cleverly designed and easy to carry piece of hardened steel. Includes a 15mm box wrench for track nuts, a lockring tool for fixed wheels, 8/9/10mm wrenches and a 5mm hex key for stems, seat bolts etc. And a bottle opener. One very clever feature is the ability to bolt on an old length of chain making the tool usable as a chain whip too. Comes complete with two wing-nut bolts to attach the tool to your bottle cage mounts if desired. We're really impressed with this tool - highly recommended.

Here are some helpful reviews of the Trixie: Living for the city and Urban Velo.

Note: Pedros dispatch these to distributors/retailers with bolts mounted and just a thin piece of tissue between them which means they do tend to have a few marks/light scratches direct from the manufacturer - when sending these we usually separate the tool/card/bolts for packing otherwise they rip the parcels very easily.

Hozan C-205 Track Cog Lockring Wrench

Zenith (modified) Lockring Tool

This is a good quality, full size lockring tool at a very affordable price. Out of the box these are superb tools but we have customised these slightly to perform even better.

Like most off the shelf lockring tools these do not have a very square 'tooth' - we therfore modify these by milling off a very small part of the rounded end to give a squared off, slightly angled tooth (like the Hozan C205). After milling each tool is individually checked by slotting into a Dura Ace lockring. This modification allows the tool to slot into the square cut-out on all our lockrings (Dura Ace, Andel, Miche and Token) more precisely meaning the tool is less likely to slip in use. The before and after pics show the difference.

Length of these is 11" with the main tool made of high strength carbon steel. They have a non-slip rubber handle covering too. Suitable for track cog and bottom bracket lockrings.

NOTE: some pictures show previous BBB model, Zenith tool for sale here is shown in first three top pictures.

£10.95 + UK shipping at £2.50  EU £5.50 (add £3)  WORLD £6.50 (add £4)

XLC Crank Remover/Extractor Tool

If you need to remove your cranks for any reason and you do not have self-extracting crank bolts then this is the essential tool required. Very well made from hardened steel with precision construction to avoid stripping crank threads. Use with an adjustable wrench, a 15mm (pedal) spanner or an 8mm Allen key (other tools not included).

Compatible with any modern square taper cranks with 22mm thread (applies to virtually all square taper cranks since the 80's). Important: to avoid damage through incorrect use please check this Sheldon link for advice on how to use this tool! Most importantly ensure the tool is not cross threaded when installing and fully seated - crank threads need to be clean, if it does not screw in easily by hand back off and start again!

XLC Headset Wrench 32mm or 36mm

These are a reasonably compact wrench but with plenty of leverage - handles are thick steel, vinyl coated and with an overall tool length of 8". The wrench head is a full 4mm thick giving secure support to the headset nuts.

For best practise use two together - one holds the adjustable nut while the other tightens the lock nut. However, with care you can get away with just using one if desired. Choice of two sizes, 32mm for most standard 1" threaded headsets and 36mm for oversize 1 1/8" headsets. Essential for fitting and adjusting any of our threaded headsets.

Bike Hand Chain Wear Checker

One of those tools that not many cyclists think of buying but for the sake of a few £'s these are really useful. Even more so for singlespeeders and fixed wheel riders concentrating all the wear on one chainring and one cog. This is a precision made measure that tells you when your chain is nearly worn and ready for replacement - a worn chain will in turn prematurely wear your expensive chainring and cog.

Simply insert into the top run of the chain and as long as the end does not slot down between the links your chain is fine. There are two marks for 0.75% and 1% - aim to replace your chain by the 0.75% mark for best results.

NOTE: some pics show previously stocked and branded BBB model, we have left these up to illustrate method of use. Bike Hand model is exactly the same in use but does not come carded.

Bike Hand Workshop Chain Tool YC-324

Workshop quality heavy duty adjustable chain tool. Large size (6" long approx). Usable with 3/32" and 1/8" chains. Highly recommended for frequent use especially with heavier duty 1/8" chains. Forged steel with rubber coated handle. Fully adjustable for any size chain and for making precise rivet adjustments as well as normal breaking, joining and shortening of chains. Complete with spare pin (available as spares too - please email to order). Twice the price of a cheap chain tool but far superior.

Important: please check this handy link for advice on how to use a chain tool if you have not used one before. In particular the correct positioning of the chain on the lower part of the tool to avoid damage to chain and tool. The upper part of the tool is not intended for splitting chains but just for easing tight links. When using the 324 tool place the chain in the lower part of the tool and first tighten up the lower support screw to rest against the base of the chain before splitting or joining the chain. We regret we cannot warranty chain tools damaged by incorrect use.

Additional Shipping Units for International Shipping

Paypal's basic shopping cart does not calculate international shipping (please see shipping page for full details). If buying from outside the UK please add the extra shipping required via these 'shipping units'. For example, a cog costs £15.95 and UK shipping at £2.25 will be included. For delivery outside the UK shipping is £4.25 (£2.00 extra) so if you purchase a cog from Europe or USA etc you will also need to purchase 1 x £2.00 shipping units.

If you are unsure simply place the order as required and we will advise of any additional shipping costs necessary. Alternatively, if you would like an exact quote for shipping or a detailed Paypal invoice before making a purchase please email and we will be happy to help.
