Our Touch adjust tool comes in a recyclable high quality cardboard sliding box with a magnet close feature for that slick feel and secondary use in mind for storing small parts, hoping that you can keep using it, and not throw it away!
The tool itself is built by you, using stiff 6061-T6 aluminium arms that bolt together using different width bolts, depending on the amount of tools you want to carry. The 2, 3 or 4 width bolts allow 4, 6 or 8 toolbits to be used from the total of 9 provided. All parts are CNC machined for accuracy of precision and fit. The toolbits and bolts are all heat treated stainless steel, while the machined washers are non heat treated stainless steel. All parts are highly corrosion resistant and ready to spend time in that sweaty pocket, wet bag or ocean air for many years, without becoming tarnished and rough to use. Built to last!
We want you to look over your bike and choose which toolbits you need for adjustment, helping you learn about your bike. Building the tool accordingly limits unnecessary tools and the modularity makes it future proof ready for your next bike or parts that you fit. Together with this modularity, worn tool parts can be replaced at minimal cost if that time arrives, therefore keeping your tool in use indefinitely. For the hard to reach bolts on your bike you can also place the needed toolbits against the tool arms to allow for better clearance and reach. The package comes with all parts, ready to build, and is a fun project to do with your kids too! The expanded user experience is part of our product goals.
The 6 toolbit example shown in hand and in the technical drawing weighs only 79 grams and is therefore not very noticeable in the rear pocket of a cycling jersey, and makes it fast and easy to use from there. The compact pivot design of the toolbits saves a lot of weight and keeps the profile slim.
Designed for efficiency with the long arms and narrow profile to reach tight spaces on the bicycle, liking it to a mobile workshop on hand during your ride, yet compact and light, the slim shape fitting comfortably into pockets and bags, as well as one's hand.
The long length gives excellent sensitivity to bolt torque, and great leverage, saving you time and energy, especially compared to short multi-tools, allowing one to comfortably unscrew tight through axles for example.
Glove friendly and ready to use on the go, the solid pivots, stiff arms, and specially shaped washers that keep the rotation dynamics consistent and controlled, lead to stable and fast use of the tool in any conditions. The open design allows one to easily select and use each toolbit with gloves on, allowing for fast and efficient use, even when one has been riding hard and the hands are tired.
We also believe that the tool has better tool functionality without a chain breaker added to it. Likewise that a separate chain breaker provides better leverage and functionality in use, and would not clutter the Touch adjust tool for the hopefully few times you need to break a chain link during your riding years.
We hope you cherish our bicycle tool as much as we do for its entire life!
