These gems are machined to precisely fit the preload adjuster cap on all modern 24mm spindle Shimano cranks. The finger spline offers good leverage to install, remove, or adjust the preload cap. We also added a 5mm hex in the center should you need a little extra leverage that a hex key provides. These are also compatible with our fit kits and with the addition of a saddle height bullet can be used to more accurately measure saddle height.
Suspension service is a specialty within bicycle repair, and it takes specialized tools to perform this work. One of the things that any factory tech will tell you is nice to have are sockets specifically made or altered for the low profile hex on the top of each fork leg. The lead-in or chamfer on a standard socket will greatly decrease the contact between tool and part and can easily scratch or deform those nuts. For years shops have been grinding down their sockets to remove the chamfer. The problem is that you're still often left with a loose-fitting socket that is still prone to chewing up those delicate parts. That's why we started from scratch. We made our sockets from billet aluminum to exacting tolerances to keep these parts in good shape. Fully CNC-machined with zero lead-in, they make the specialty that is suspension service a little bit easier. They feature a 3/8" square drive for use with your favorite torque wrench as well as finger splines to help run the top caps into the fork legs with those oil soaked hands. We also kept them short (1" or 25mm for all sizes) to reduce the chance of them slipping off of the top cap under torque. - Made from billet aluminum to exacting tolerances to keep form damaging the suspension - Finger splines so you can thread it easily by hand - 3/8" square drive - Short (1"/25mm for all sizes) to reduce the chance of them coming off of the top cap under torque - Made in Bend, Oregon Applications - 24mm socket - used on SRAM top caps - 26mm socket - used on Marzocchi and Reverb sealheads - 27mm socket - used on Fox and X-Fusion top caps - 30mm socket - used on the RS-1 SRAM sealhead removal tool as well as a handful of other forks. - 6-size set covers most modern suspension forks on the market: 24, 26, 27, 28, 30 and 32mm
This tool is compatible with all outboard bearing cups that our dual-sided Shimano socket doesn't fit, including Campagnolo, SRAM, FSA, and older Shimano. These gems start as a 7075 aluminum billet and get precisely machined. We take the time to put some nice deep finger splines in this tool so you can thread the cup into the frame by hand with those greasy fingers you haven't washed in a while. - Hard anodized and laser-engraved with torque specs. - Use your favorite 3/8" square drive ratchet or torque wrench to tighten it down.
All the awesomeness of the dual-sided tool but in a single Shimano or Campagnolo version. Updated in 2020, the single-sided tool now has the same size handle (1/2 inch) as the dual-sided tool. - When purchasing the chain whip, buy the 1/2-inch handle chain whip.
While most other manufacturers cast or forge their bottom bracket tools, we machine ours for greater precision. Whenever you're dealing with anodized surfaces, great care needs to be taken to keep those surfaces from getting marred, gouged, and stripped out. That can be nearly impossible with some spanner style tools, and difficult with other loose-fitting sockets. The most unique feature about this tool is the inner nub; that nub in the center of the tool is the same size as the crank spindle. What this does is give you a second point of contact that keeps the tool from coming off of the part when trying to remove stubborn cups. This dual sided socket is designed to work with the new Shimano DA-9000/XTR-BB93 bottom bracket as well 6800 Ultegra and 5800 105 11spd groups (BBR-60).
The Crombie tool is a game changer when it comes to swapping cassettes. Whether you're a professional mechanic swapping cassettes several times a day or a DIY kind of guy, this gem has a place on your tool bench. The first time a quick release spring rolls under your bench the Crombie tool paid for itself. If you like to remove the cassette for a detailed cleaning or just swapping from one cassette to another, it's a big time saver and a breeze to use. This version of the tool has a Shimano/SRAM remover on one side with a Campagnolo on the other. A precision machined spline ensures maximum engagement and durability. The STANDARD version comes with a solid handle which gives the tool some mass making it the preferred choice in the shop. The SUPER LIGHT version shaves 125 grams out of the handle. SL handles are plenty durable for lockrings that are torqued close to the 40 NM spec. If you commonly come across over torque lockrings get the standard handle!
Coming in at roughly 265 grams, the Team Issue Titanium Hammer is a big weight savings over more traditional hammers. The soft face is replaceable with commonly available 1" threaded faces. At 12" long, it's compact but still long enough to remove those stubborn bearings. We finish off the Team Issue hammer with a custom silicone grip from ESI to give a bit of cushion from the all-metal construction.
