Mineral Design has created a new innovative and compact cyclist toolkit that they have launched over on the Kickstarter crowdfunding website with the aim of raising $20,000 to take the idea into production.
The Barstow System has been designed to store a complete bike chain tool in your handlebar and offer cyclists a welded steel mini tool complete with a cavity of removal bits.
Check out the video below to learn more about the Barstow System from Mineral Design thats weighs just 112 grams and includes a handy selection of bike tools.
The Mini Bar is a high quality, portable, and customizable mini tool for your bikes, boards, or house projects. Using standard ¼” hex bits, the Mini Bar allows you to only carry the bits you need. The bit rack stores up to 6 bits and attaches to the tool with 2 powerful neodymium magnets for a secure hold. There are 3 driver locations on the tool; 2 for high torque applications and 1 to quickly spin bolts in. All driver locations retain the bits with neodymium magnets. The tool itself is made of strong and lightweight welded steel tubing. This compact tool will last a long time.
The Barstow System is a new way to store tools and other items conveniently on your bike and out of sight. The Barstow Chain Tool is a complete chain breaking tool with integrated chain link storage that fits inside your handlebar. Compact and easy to use, the Barstow Chain Tool simplifies what you carry by always having a chain tool and quick link within easy reach. All Barstow Caps not only look great, they protect your bars during a crash as well as your gut from puncture wounds.
