Pedro’s Tools – First Look

Pedros Tool Review
I got home this evening, and I got a treasure trove of tools from Pedro’s to test out. Their Vise Whip was one of my choices for the top 5 things I saw at Interbike 2009, so I am looking forward to trying to tool out in action.

The Vise Whip replaces the chain whip tool that is used to remove or add a cassette to a hub. The chain whip was an ineffective tool, albeit a bit unwieldy. I cannot wait to see how it compares against the old method.

The Trixie is a multi tool for the fix gear rider, I will need to prod my fixed gear friends into to helping me test this one, or join the band wagon and swap one of my bikes to that dark world!

I don’t recall this tool from the show, but this tool has T10, T25 and T30 Torx heads. This will be a nice addition to the tool I use, since having the ubiquitous T25 rotor bolt torx is essential on a modern mountain bike.

This is a sweet little torque wrench for those low torque bolts, such as stem bolts, seat bolts and anything that uses titanium or carbon fiber. I am looking forward to using this unit since it is always tough to use the proper feel to tightening down those stem bolts on carbon handlebars.
