The Brooks 21 Multi Tool Posted by China

The Brooks 21 Multi Tool will launch next year at Eurobike 2013. 

A collaboration between Brooks designers, some of the world’s greatest cycle travellers, and over 700 members of the Brooks community who responded to a tool questionnaire on the Brooks Despatch, is about to produce the supreme multi tool for cyclists next year. Here is a first glimpse of the technical drawings.

7 tools in one piece: The chain breaker with integrated spoke wrenches 0, 1, 2, 3, a bottle opener, and even a Brooks saddle spanner, is sure to baffle those who believe that having it all is not possible.

Rounding out the plentiful assortment of 21 tools are:

7 allen keys (hex wrenches) # 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8.
4 screwdrivers: 2 flat head, 2 phillips, #’s 1 and 2.
2 torx: T-10 and T-25

and finally, one knife with locking blade.  Surely the only multi tool to feature such an endlessly useful item.

Sparse Bicycle Lights Posted by China

These lights were designed from the ground up to improve your ride. Sparse lights are constructed from die-cast aluminum, not plastic. Once installed, they are part of your bike. They won't jostle, rattle, or interfere with your cables. The metal chassis is joined by a double-lens, sealed with a silicone gasket to keep everything dry inside and working for a very long time. They're solid, sealed, tamper-resistant, and stupidly bright.
