Good place to keep a tool safe. No chain tool though.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

Nifty but unnecessary? My pocket or pack or jersey holds a multi-tool just fine….

True but you have to remember to pack the tools. I have tools in each of my packs so I can't easily forget. At my advanced age of decrepitude I forget stuff all the time. Why last week I found myself halfway around the Nordic trails at Whistler Olympic Park when I realized I forgot the one contact lens I wear. Which means I drove their with no eye corrective lenses. Toe days later I get their with two excited dogs only to realize I forgot a jacket…at minus 12° C.

That's awesome. I was actually thinking about this the other day when working on the bike and how it would be a good place to put a tool set.

Seems more useful than the industry nine axle tool.

I wants it. Big fan of having all the essentials right on the bike - no forgetting, no crap in my pockets and no camelback makes me a happy dude!

Great idea but wouldn't it be a bit rattley ?

What holds it in place? If it is just an interference fit, you can say goodbye to your $100 multi-tool in short order I would think. Just buy 8 or so multi tools (for the same price) and keep one everywhere so you cant forget it on your ride.

If you look at their site it looks like high powered magnets keep it in place. I am super interested in this so I sent them a few questions…damn expensive though.

Ah yes. The short video shows what looks like a magnet to hold it in place. Im still not sure id trust it when the trail starts getting rough.

Pretty cool idea. Having a multi tool in your pocket is ok until you crash and land on it.

Not bad. There's one that goes inside (or replaces) a wheel axle too.

Nothing on the Specialized SWAT frame storage of course but that takes real innovation :)
