Few things make a mechanic smile quite like new tools. Whether you’re a home mechanic or a seasoned pro, Pedro’s has a number of new tools that should make you happy. Starting with the big ones, Pedro’s should have their new headset press by the time June rolls around. Thanks to additional headset and bottom bracket standards, press tools seem to have been getting more attention lately, and the Pedro’s option looks like it could be a great addition to your wall…

Sized to fit all of the current standards, the head of the headset press is built with needle bearings to keep the handles turning smoothly even when loaded. As anyone who has caught the webbing of their thumb in a spring loaded headset press can tell you – it sucks. Which is why Pedro’s is using a simple pin system for quick location without the potential for losing chunks of skin. Fitted with large cushioned handles, the press should sell for around $150 by the time it’s available.

While it doesn’t quite have the bling factor of a titanium/carbon hammer, Pedro’s The Hammer will be a good bit more affordable at $30. The compact 10.75″ hammer has a dual sided head with a replaceable soft plastic face and a rubber dice grip handle.

New additions to the chain tool family include a new Pro model and the apprentice. The Pro tool is 11 speed compatible with their Retractable Pin Guide (RPG) and includes the Campy peening bit and backer for $75. The Apprentice is basically the same tool without the RPG/peening function for $45.

Fixed Torque Drivers will be sold in 4, 5, and 6Nm models which as described are set to a preset torque. Each includes a 4mm, 5mm, and T25 Torx bit which are magnetically stored in the handle. Pedro’s says the wrenches are fitted with toque limiting infinite clutches to prevent over torquing, and will sell for $40 each.

Those who build a lot of wheels or spend a lot of time on a truing stand will appreciate the new Pro Spoke Wrenches.  Each wrench is dual sided (3 sided and 4 sided openings) with an ergonomic handle which is reversible to make sure your fingers stay comfortable. Sold for $18 a piece in 3.23, 3.3, or 3.45 sizes, the whole set will sell for $45.

Perhaps the best little tool of the whole bunch, the Disc wrench includes everything you need for disc brakes – a 7 and 8mm flare wrench plus a rotor tool for $14.

Definitely a pro level tool kit, the Master T handle set is drool worthy. Sold with everything shown here the set will probably sell for $130 or so.

The full pro kit gets an upgrade with their 3.1 Master Tool Kit now with the yellow case option available to consumers. Including 70 of their pro level tools, the tool kit will run you $1100. For those not looking for portability, Pedro’s also has a new Master Bench Tool kit with 121 pieces to set up a bench for $1400.

That Master T Handle set looks legit. All of the right hex keys and torx keys. Can’t wait to pick this up.

pixalias9, I was originally thinking the same thing until I looked a little closer. While the design definitely grabbed my attention with the offset “T” look for getting really strong torque on more difficult bolts while also having a hex on both sides of the T, I was disappointed to see that they did not include a 10mm. Most SRAM cranks I use require the 10mm wrench and it would be nice to have a large steel T-handle. The Torx30 doesn’t make sense to me. I have yet to come across that size of torx on a bike, but of course that doesn’t mean it isn’t used. I just personally haven’t seen it.

Erm… most of the top-end cranks would use alluminium chainring bolts, and that is most likely to be a Torx30? Campagnolo, Shimano, FSA, etc., they all use T30 and it makes a lot of sense, as it’s very difficult to round the head.

I like the T-Handles, except they left out the 10mm! I need that for Ultra Torque cranksets. Pass.

Why do none of the modern chain tools have loosening shelves?

It’s because most 10 and all the 11sp chains have riveted pins, one is not meant to “loosen” them. If the link goes stiff during installation, something has gone wrong: cut and do it again with a new link. If that seems a waste of time/resources, is still far cheaper and quicker than experiencing a broken chain in the middle of nowhere.
The thing is, with more and more gears available, the chains have to be narrower and narrower, hence their pins need to be riveted.

The T-handles are top notch kit, as are the spoke wrenches. I highly recommend both. I’m anxious for the headset press to be available.
