Introducing Phoenix Dock Tool System from Pivot Cycles
Ditching the pack for on-bike storage isn't a new trend at this point, but Pivot Cycles and Topeak think there's a better way to carry tools than simply shoving them in a bottom bracket spindle, or packed down some inaccessible tube. Their new Phoenix Dock Tool system is designed to fit on your bike's water bottle bosses, and is more "NASCAR pit-crew than cleverly hidden." Read on after the break for details and pricing.
When we set out to design a sophisticated, Pivot exclusive on-the-bike tool system, we weren’t thinking “cleverly hidden”, we were thinking “NASCAR pit crew”. With Phoenix Dock on your bike, mid-ride adjustments and repairs happen in mere seconds, and tools are always strategically located when you need them. Carrying high quality, full-feature tools is necessary on every ride, but weighing down your hydration pack, or wasting time extracting hidden tools, is not.
“We love the idea of on-bike tool storage. However, many hidden tools take longer to access then actually completing the repair. We wanted to design a system that makes accessing the tools faster than reaching into your pack,” says Pivot Cycles President and CEO, Chris Cocalis. “Now you can also have the cleanest setup and be the quickest to get back to riding or offer assistance to other riders in need.”
Phoenix Dock tool kits can be installed on any bike with water bottle bosses, typically under or on top of the downtube. Bikes like the Switchblade have a third set of bosses under the top tube specifically designed for Phoenix Dock integration. Developed in collaboration with the industry-leading tool innovators at Topeak. Topeak shares our vision of innovation making them the ideal partner in creating super easy to access, high-quality tools worthy of being mounted on a Pivot. The Phoenix Dock system offers three unique configurations to tailor on-the-bike tool storage.

Prices range from $46.99 USD to $56.99 USD. Phoenix Dock tools are available now, in all versions, at key Pivot Dealers worldwide and on our webstore.
