The tool junkie holiday gift guide


Had I been a lyrical von Trapp youngster in The Sound of Music, new tools would have topped the list of “My Favorite Things.” Even if they’re not quite the tech geek I am, it’s safe to say cyclists love new tools.

Most mechanics’ favorite tools are the simple ones, like my Paul Component Engineering Rasta Bottle Opener, which pulls double duty as a 15mm cantilever tool. Other wrenches will be head over heels for something more along the lines of the Pro Torque Wrench, which keeps every bolt torqued within 0.2nm of spec. If your favorite cyclist falls anywhere along the OCD mechanic spectrum, you’ll find the perfect gift here.
