Fix Mfg’s new MTB Field Kit packs in everything you need trailside for that last-minute prep before a mountain bike ride. The Fix Field Kit already includes pretty much all of the tools you’ll need to get your bike set up & running smoothly at the trailhead, plus specially designed pockets to pack in your own bike-specific replacement parts and your favorite shock pump to dial-in the perfect suspension setup.

We mostly know Fix Mfg for their wearable, everyday carry multi-tools that hide in your belt buckle or strap-on to just about any pack. But beyond always having a useful compact tool on you when some emergency wrenching is required, Fix are now outfitting riders for bigger mountain bike trailhead duties.

Their MTB Field Kit essentially scales up every-day-carry to what you should pack in your race-day travel bag or just keep in the car whenever you drive somewhere to go mountain biking – everything in one nicely organized zip-up pouch.

The kit includes the most commonly used tools, a tire pump & levers, lube & degreaser, cleaning brushes & a shop rag, plus a journal & tape measure to log bike setup & maintenance along the way. On top of that, there are organized compartments for the specialized tools you already have and the replacement parts specific to your bike.

Fix Mfg MTB Field Kit – Pricing & availability

Everything you need in one place for pre-ride setup and post-ride clean-up, the Fix Mfg MTB Field Kit sells for $85 direct from Fix Manufacturing. The kit as they sell it is about 9.5×6.5″ (24×16.5cm) and weighs around 2.5lb / 1.2kg before you start adding your own bit, so it’s not likely to join you on regular rides. But if you carry it along to the trailhead or pack it in your flight bag, you’ll be sure to have everything you need to ensure your next ride will go smoothly.

  1. This might be called a Trailage Bag – a Triage Bag is what you need *after* the ride: This derailleur has a 50/50 chance of survival until next weekend, we should try to save it – the tire has been bleeding air for two hours but with a sealant infusion it could make it, mark it red – bent as it is, this pedal can make the ride home and it will be fine – that carbon frame has had it, no last rides, sorry pal, here’s your black ribbon.

  2. You can ditch that huge screwdriver. There is already a PH2 (Philips) in the multitool and what do you need a flat head for? Personally I don’t like these folding multitools either. They are just as heavy as separate hex keys. I perfer a bit holder or ratchet with small replacable bits.
