Pedro's Trixie tool review£16.99

Fixed gear tooling

BikeRadar score3.5/5

This nifty multi-tool for fixed gear bikes features a lockring hook, 8, 9 and 10mm spanner ends, a 5mm Allen key and 15mm spanner, plus a bottle opener.

Aside from a tyre lever, it’s pretty much all you need for roadside repairs. The ‘sandy’ finish grips well and wingnut bolts mean it can be fitted to your frame.

It’s neat, it works and has a lifetime warranty, though it isn’t cheap for what is a fairly simple tool.

Simon has been cycling for as long as he can remember, and more seriously since his time at university in the Dark Ages (the 1980s). This has taken in time trialling, duathlon and triathlon and he has toured extensively in Asia and Australasia, including riding solo 2900km from Cairns to Melbourne. He now mainly rides as a long-distance commuter and leisure/fitness rider. He has been testing bikes and working for Cycling Plus in various capacities for nearly 20 years.
