- EDC Tool – Regret it?
I almost had a warrant refused by Fox because I’d installed onePosted 9 months ago
Claim was nothing to do with the steerer
Common sense prevailed in the end after we’d had the conversation of me going away and cutting the threaded bit off and returning with it.
Worth thinking about
Brilliant tool and really handy though.singlespeedstuSubscriber
were they not going to accept it while it had the thread in there?
Basically yes that was the jist of the conversation.Posted 9 months ago
I actually took the fork in myself and handed it over the counter. He filled in all the paper work then took the fork off me and removed the paper that i’d put in the top of the steerer with my details on.
Then told me they couldn’t help me.
We then had the cutting the steerer down conversation and they did the work anyway.
Think if i’d just posted the fork it they’de have just sent it back with no work done on it.
It is actually specifically listed in the warranty T’s and C’s.
Anyone in the West Mids wants to use the threading tool is more than welcome to borrow mine for a couple of beers.5plusn8Member
TBH I wondered why the EDC relied on threading, when it could have been a bolt through thing like the specialized one, or even bolt onto aPosted 9 months ago

It is simple, light weight, effective and easily adjustable on the trail if necessary. Hard to beat. Only downside is the expense of the whole set up and the possibility for fork warranty hassle though any half decent company wouldn’t try to dodge warranty work unless cutting the thread were the cause of the issuePosted 9 months agoscruffMember
I recently put an EDC in my Marzocchi steerer with some tyre bacon strips in the extra bit and a 100cc pump in my bum bag and one on the gravel commmuter. Great little things, I’ve been caught out a few times of having no tool after stopping using backpacks for most riding.Posted 9 months agoBigmantrialsSubscriber
I really like mine, I have a 70cc pump and an EDC tool, I have shortened the storage container so that it fits inside the shorter pump, in the container I have a home made tubeless plug kit.
As I have a couple of bikes I wanted to have the tool and pump combo but didn’t fancy the massive 100cc pump, the 70cc pump fits nicely in some of my shorts pockets or doesn’t feel quite so intrusive when I stick it in my SWAT bib pockets.Posted 9 months ago
I’ve got the edc tool in the steerer and a fork cork in the bottom of the steerer. In there I have a small blade for trimming tyre inserts a co2 head by topeak and some plastic notes.
Under the saddle I have a tube and two co2 cartridges in a dry bag held in place with a Louri strap. Then I have a set of Sahmurai SWORDS 2.0 in the handle bars. That’s me sorted. Just chuck a bottle of water in the cage and I’m away for a quick ride.
Note to self, start going out for quick ridesPosted 9 months agopobakerMember
“Weird, the CO2 canister definitely does not fit inside my lyriks, 2017 model I think. It does fit in my pikes though. Sure I read somewhere that it doesn’t fit Lyriks but can’t find a link.”
a quick google says Co2 doesn’t fit the boost. Mine are 2017 non-boost (with a 16g cartridge), so thats probably it.Posted 9 months agomashrMember
I nearly pulled the trigger on of those tools! I found this tool for £16..
It works well and its a nice cheap alternative.
Have you actually tried it? Worth actually taking it over the different bolts on your bike. e.g. I can’t tighten brakes using mine as it fouls the caliper. Also, the top fell off one I boughtPosted 9 months ago
