Industry Nine Matchstix thru axle tool for Rockshox Bluto

Originally shown in 2015 and then available in 2016, the Industry Nine Matchstix multi-tool-inside-a-thru-axle part provides the most common hex and torx bits in a stealthy package. Now, they’ve widened it to fit the Rockshox Bluto’s 150mm axle standard, which lets you actually carry all six included bits…

The 100mm/110mm versions hid four of the six included bits inside a sleeve slid into the thru bolt (axle). A seventh (5mm hex) is integrated into the handle itself and is also used to unthread the axle from the fork. The Matchstix also builds a chain breaker, spoke wrench (2.32mm) and valve core remover into the handle, and can fit a spare chain quick link inside, too. It ships with loose bits in 6/4/3/2.5/2mm hex and T25 torx for $160. Already have the handle on another bike? Get just the thru bolt with sleeve for $50.

Why would I store tools in the axle which is unsprung weight(the worst kind) when a much better but similar tool system goes in the BB axle and fixes itself magnetically and has superior egos??

I like Eggos. But seriously, these seem cool, but the price is out of control. I like the BB tool you’re referring to, but it doesn’t have a chain tool. And I would’ve carped about the price before seeing this one.
