    I have the specialised version which is also a good alternative

    The EDC is so good, that I even stuff it in my jersey pocket when out on the CX bike (carbon steerer).

    You can tap the carbon steerer (carefully), as long as the EDC fits inside it works.

    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 bought

    I use mine quite a bit as it’s a lot closer to hand than the tools in the garage. What part of your brakes are you trying to tighten? I don’t think mine fouls anything as its about the same size as the multitool it replaced. The bits seem OK, the fit is good, not perfect, but a lot better than a £4 multi tool.

    I did contemplate re-designing and 3D printing the body to make an extra lightweight version, but I couldn’t figure how to dismantle it, I think it might be glued as well as bolted.

    Problem with that gear best one is that its a rip off of someone else’s design.

    Lower calliper bolt on a Sram Guide. Can’t get near it

    Does the EDC tool fit in a non-tapered steerer? I would like one and it would be useful if it could also work on my road bike which is 1 1/8th.

    No, it only fits some/most tapered aluminium steerers: https://www.oneupcomponents.com/pages/fork-compatibility

    The tool will fit but the bung and therefore the recess that holds the carry compartment on the bottom will not fit.

    Pretty easy to work around though.

    For anyone that’s interested, this is my modified EDC container. I cut the container down and used araldite to join it back together so that I could fit it in the 70cc pump.

    EDC1

    EDC2

    I then made a tubless plug kit by cutting the threaded section off a CO2 canister, cutting the handle off a tubeless plug tool and soldering them together. There is just enough room for one loaded worm and then 3 short ones inside the canister.

    THe crank tool is not nearly as good, had two from ali express, lost one when i fell off and the bike landed on its side, shot out and i didn’t notice. Second one bent when i was trying to remove my front wheel. Average tool, not comparable to EDC, is a whack cheaper though!!

    There was a suggestion at one point, of a dynaplug adaptor to fit the bottom of the edc. I gave up and just got the sahmurai sword instead.

    nice work there bigmantrails – question without modding the end cap thing – does the official one up tire plug and bits fit into that capsule without any modding at all??

    Oscillate Wildly – Unfortuantely I don’t know, I would have purchased the official oneup plug kit but it was out of stock at the time and I was impatient and wanted to get my setup sorted.

    I am sure if Oneup made a smaller capsule that would fit in the smaller pump they would sell a few, even if it was just as a safe place for additional quick links or some cash.

    Indeed, cheap knock off tat.

    Here’s the real one that now has a chain splitter:

    nice one bud- infact the 70cc one doesnt even come with a capsule does it? it states that it can fit the edc tool (no capsule) or a c02 cartridge? can you confirm if yours did come with the capsule thing for a bit of storage along with the tool inside?

    The capsule only comes in one size as far as I can see, and it comes with the tool, not the pump. My understanding is that the 70cc pump will fit either the tool on its own or a CO2 cartridge on its own screwed into the pump cap.

    There is a gap between the bottom of the tool/CO2 but if you just stuck stuff in there you might not be able to fish it out, which is why I made the shortened capsule.

    ahh i see – so there is space at the bottom but not for the full size capsule that comes wit the tool – hence the mod…interesting there is some space there though youd think they utilise it for extra storage or a plug that can fit in there

    Turn pump upside down and shake.
    Works for me.😎
    All I keep in there is a few tyre worms.
    Bodger tool is one of these with the handle cut down threaded into the end of the multi tool.

    The 2 Gearbest copies turned up today.

    Not bad for £8 to be honest!
