Pedro’s Y Wrenches
As the young Ray Winstone said in cult borstal nightmare film Scum, “where’s your tool?” Well, lately in the Singletrack Office we’ve been having trouble answering that, leading to a number of horrendous beatings. Thankfully, the lovely people from 2Pure have sent us a load of Pedro’s Tools. Here we have a selection of Pedro’s Y Wrenches. Made from heat treated steel with plastic grips, they come in 2,2.5,3mm; 4,5,6mm; ball ended 4,5,6mm and Torx T10,T25, T30. Event better, they have a lifetime warranty.
Price: From £9
Pedro’s Equalizer Pro pedal wrench
The Pedro’s Equalizer Pro pedal wrench not only has a very butch name, it’s made from a 305mm long bit of cromoly steel to stand up to repeated use. The mountain bike grip handle is a nice touch too…
Pedro’s Shimano Integrated Bottom Bracket Wrench
The Pedro’s Shimano Integrated Bottom Bracket Wrench is precision cut to fit Shimano external BBs and has a nice vinyl covered handle to protect your hands…
Pedro’s Hex Drivers (5/6/8mm)
The Pedro’s Hex Drivers (5/6/8mm) have got plenty of leverage from their extra long bodies and large handled designs. They’re made for removing pedals without flats or, if you’re Matt, tightening things up until they make that special little squeak that metal gives when it’s all happy and tight.
Price: From £9.99
Pedro’s Vise Whip
This made tool geek Jon feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The Pedro’s Vise Whip should put an end to the faff of conventional chain whips. Simply clamp the sprocket of your cassette (up to 23T) with the adjustable mole-grip style took and you should be able to undo the locknut with no more hassle. Cunning.
Pedro’s Pro Chain Tool
The Pedro’s Pro Chain Tool is designed to put up with heavy use but is also precise enough for the latest 10spd systems. There are also two replacement pins hidden away in the ergonomic handle.
Pedro’s Screwdriver Set
The Pedro’s Screwdriver Set contains #1 and #2 Phillips head plus 4.5, 5.5 and 6.5mm flat blade screwdrivers, all in a rather convieniet storage pouch. As ou’d expect they’re made from quality heat treated steel and shouldn’t be used for knocking headset cups out, not that it’ll stop us. The handles are also colour coded so you can get the right one…
Pedro’s Ratcheting Wrench Combo set
The Pedro’s Ratcheting Wrench Combo set has eight quality spanners from 8 to 15mm, one end open and the other a high-torque ratcheting bit. The polished chrome finish should stay shining bright and they also have a tidy storage hanger.
Pedro’s Torx Wrench set
Seven plastic handled Torx head wrenches, coated in manganese and in T7/T10/T15/T20/T25/T30/T40 sizes should put an end to our Torx key woes…
