New Brooks Multi Tool, Adjustable Spanner, to Aid Roadside Repairs
In the past, browsing through the maintenance department of the Brooks Online Shop was a brief excursion to procure a standard spanner or perhaps a tin of Proofide. Now a stop by this humble section of the website is about to get much more interesting…
A collaboration between Brooks designers, some of the world’s greatest cycle travellers, and over 700 members of the Brooks community who responded to a tool questionnaire on the Brooks Despatch, is about to produce the supreme multi tool for cyclists and we are happy to offer a first glimpse of the technical drawings.
7 tools in one piece: Our chain breaker with integrated spoke wrenches 0, 1, 2, 3, a bottle opener, and even a Brooks saddle spanner, is sure to baffle those who believe that having it all is not possible.
Rounding out the plentiful assortment of 21 tools are:
7 allen keys (hex wrenches) # 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8.
4 screwdrivers: 2 flat head, 2 phillips, #’s 1 and 2.
2 torx: T-10 and T-25
and finally, one very sharp knife. Surely the only multi tool to feature such an endlessly useful item.
The Brooks 21 Multi Tool will launch next September at Eurobike 2013.
Great ideas were never far to hand for John Boultbee Brooks, erstwhile founder and namesake of this great company. Hundreds of patents bear his name to this day, and among them a rather clever and simple solution for those cyclists in need of box spanners in a variety of sizes.
Our unique solution, which is partially based on the above patent drawings, will also go into production in 2013.
