Welcome to the next exciting review on products provided to us by our friends at Mountain Bikes Direct. We've teamed up with one of Australia's best online mountain bike stores to bring you in depth reviews on the latest and most intriguing parts and accessories you can purchase for your bike.

The idea of the OneUp Components EDC Every Day Carry tool is to store the tools you’ll need in vacant spaces on your bike instead of suspending the weight of items you carry in your backpack or pocket. This tool simply slides into your fork steerer tube after a small amount of time is applied to tap a thread into your steerer tube. The compact design means it’s one less item you may forget to pack in the event that you’ll need it when you’re an hour from the car. It’s quite surprising just how versatile this small tool is and just how commonly used the tools affixed are. It includes the most used hex wrench sizes (2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 8mm), a T25 torx, a plastic tyre lever, flat head screwdriver, four spoke keys (0,1,2,3), a presta valve core tool, a chain breaker tool and comes with a small sealed capsule to store small parts like a quick link, a CO2 cartridge and items of that size. There’s also a tool to tighten the top cap if need be.

Finally sourced a 70cc pump & fitted it & the tool to the Ripley:









Snug as a bug in a rug. Glad I ended up with the short pump as it works better with the frame shape.

The side mount cage (I rate the Giant ones) allows the bottle to come & go just fine. And I don’t use the shock lever ever...DW means you can run it wide open everywhere...so it doesn’t matter about lever clearance.

I run a Giant side mount and it's really good. Only ever lost a bottle in a big stack

Just added a tubeless repair insert tool too my edc



Using a dremel I cut the threaded section of a used CO2 cartridge and butchered a cheap weldtite tool to expose the metal shaft then epoxied them together.

I cut a tyre on Saturday and could have done with this then but at least it’s ready for the next time.

Heads up peeps - had my OneUp pump elastic band snap (unbeknownst to me) and the pump plus tool jettisoned on the trail, also unnoticed. Mate behind scooped it up but crap, $170 worth of choice bits left my bike without me knowing.

So I modded the mount to accept a reinforced Velcro strap instead:





That elastic strap is a weak point...
