Wolf Tooth Components has added two more functions to the ever-growing capabilities of their 8-Bit Magnetic Stacking Multi-Tool. The new module, if you will, comes in the form of a Tire Lever and Disc Brake Tool with a rotor truing component.
WTC 8-Bit Tire Lever and Disc Rotor Tool
The new WTC Tire Lever and Disc Brake Tool is available to buy as a standalone tool, or it can be bought as part of the new 8-Bit Kit Two, in a stack of tools covering 22 functions.
The new component adds two useful tools for hydraulic disc brake fettling; the machined end is home to an 8mm flare wrench that can be used to open and close the compression nut on hydraulic brakes, and there is a slot for truing rotors up to 2.3mm thick, too.
The latter can be super useful for some mid-ride tuning, especially on a social ride when you realize it’s your bike that is making the anti-social dinging noise.
The plastic tire lever end is nothing new, with the middle tool of the original 8-Bit system comprising a tire lever with a machined end designed to remove dents from aluminium rims, a module that is still available, retailing at £20. It has a tapered, angled tip to fit under tight tires with rounded edges that should prevent damage to rims and rim tape.
