If you weren’t at NAHBS 2018, chances are some of these items are long gone. These very, very limited edition Walnut, Cherry and Maple handled pedal wrenches from Abbey Bike Tools are $130 each. Only ten of each were made, and they probably sold out at the show, but you can email them and try.
Not shown, the Titanium H.A.G. (hanger alignment gauge) makes a comeback for $325. Only 20 of these were made, usually they’re in steel for $185.
The new Abbey Bike Tools 4-Way Multitool starts at $40 and comes with any four bits you want. But, it’s also offered in five preconfigured arrangements. Make your own with any allen bit from 2-6mm, torx from T10-T30, a 2JIS/DIN Phillips, or a 1mm slotted.
Stock configurations include:
- 2.5 / 4 / 5 / T25
- 3 / 4 / 5 / T25
- 3 / 4 / 5 / #2JIS
- 2.5 / 4 / 5 / #2JIS
- 4 / 5 / 6 / #2JIS
The bits are from Germany, body is made here in the US. Get it from your shop (via BTI) or direct. They’re secured into place with Loctite, so they say you can heat it up to remove any of the bits then swap in your own later.
They’ve also added six new patterns to their BB tools, including one for the new SRAM DUB, which is the same tool pattern as the old Zipp Vuma Quad, but optimized for modern frames and B.B. shells. The other new options include:
- Torque Tite for Enduro/White Ind
- Chris King T47/BSA30
Retail is $45 estimated, not quite ready for production, should ship late March.
Of course, this being our first hands on with the DUB bottom bracket, we figured we’d snap extra pics to give all of you a look. We anticipate our own complete group to arrive soon, stay tuned for the complete unboxing and weigh-in.
