Review: The Fix It Sticks Mountain Kit brings shop tool functionality to the trail

by 5

Having launched a wildly popular Kickstarter campaign way back in 2013, Fix It Sticks went on to successfully bring its clever modular tool system into a market that, up until then, had otherwise been dominated by the standard flip-out multi-tools we’re all familiar with.

For those who haven’t seen these before, Fix It Sticks is based around the T-bar tool concept, with two ‘Sticks’ that lock into each other to create, well, a T-bar tool. The goal of this design is to bring shop-like functionality into the world of compact multi-tools.

Fix It Sticks has brought the T-bar concept to the world of portable cycling multi-tools.

The popularity of the design has seen Fix It Sticks expand its original product range, spawning numerous options that offer both fixed and replaceable bits.

The Mountain Kit shown here is the most comprehensive option that Fix It Sticks offers for cyclists. It’s based around the same modular system as the original Fix It Sticks, but uses swappable bits that are held within the metal barrels via magnets.

What you get inside that carry case.

There are eight bits in total, and you also get a neat chain breaker, clip-in tyre levers, a plastic holster, and a carry case. Basically all the essentials you’d expect from a large size multi-tool.

    I like the look of that chain tool. Looks like some decent leverage available.

    I also carry a small petzl penknife and a set of Knipex adjustable pliers in the case. Better than carrying a conventional tool and a leatherman as there is lots of redundancy.

    found out yesterday!, its missing a spoke key… schoolboy error, otherwise solid piece of kit.
