Hidden tools have become a popular item since they’re always ready to be used and rarely left at home. Products such as OneUp’s EDC tool or Specialized’s SWAT tool are a must-have for professional enduro racers and trail riders looking to waste no time. Bontrager saw a need to incorporate a hidden tool in its MTBs, so they introduced the new BITS integrated tool. This toolkit replaces your fork’s star nut and top cap and doubles as a way to compress your headset. The tool features almost everything you’ll need for a trail-side fix, from a multi-tool to a chain breaker. Find out more by heading to Trek’s website.
Mountain Bike Action is a monthly magazine devoted to all things mountain biking (yes, that’s 12 times a year because we never take a month off of mountain biking). It has been around since 1986 and we’re still having fun.
