There’s no shortage of pocket tools that you can use for the on-the-go bicycle repairs, including ones we’ve featured like the Crank Brothers Multi-Tool and the Topeak Alien III. These Fix It Sticks Replaceable Edition, though, do most products in its category one better by giving the user a powerful leverage, allowing for convenient use similar to full-sized tools.
Unlike most pocket-sized drivers and wrenches, it’s designed to form into a T-shape during use, giving the user plenty of room to maneuver when driving screws and turning bolts on their two-wheeled steed. No more trying to figure out how to keep your hand from slipping while trying to grip a minuscule pocket tool and turn it with enough force – the tool’s T-shape handle ensures you can deliver whatever torque is required.
When not in use, the Fix It Sticks Replaceable Edition’s T-shaped handle can split into two parts, which you can conveniently store side by side in your pocket. It comes with eight interchangeable bits (six sizes of hex key, a Torx 25, and a Phillips #2), so you can simply swap in what you need, with built-in magnets ensuring the bits are tightly secured during use. Even better, it uses standard quarter-inch bits, so any other bits that you have lying in the toolbox can be commissioned for use with the tool, making it suitable for uses beyond on-the-go bicycle maintenance. Both the handle and the bits are constructed from steel, ensuring it can support very high torque (website claims it handles up to 40 foot-pounds).
Originally a Kickstarter project, the Fix It Sticks Replaceable Edition is available now, priced at $35.99.
