OneUp Components EDC Every Day Carry tool review

I’ve had mine for close to two years and here’s what I have found;

Big pump if you can fit it. More air per stroke can only be good, right?
The green tip is also a CO2 inflator head BUT practice at home or when you’re not sweaty/puffing/late. Unscrew it a bit so it will come out when you need it.
If you pack the Tyre plugger, you’ll want the CO2, if you pack the CO2 you’ll want the canister with $10 and two zip ties etc.
The multi tool is great but has so little leverage it is a challenge for 6mm rear axles when you change a flat. Torquing to spec is easy at home with the regular hex tool, not so much on the trail with the EDC.
If your steerer is tapped and you still have the pump, the end of the pump has a cap to contain a small storage space. Padding + 2x CO2s maybe?

Still a big fan of this system despite those findings. My concern is with the issue of tapping a steerer. Can anyone explain how cutting a quality thread into a tube voids warranty, yet bashing a star nut into said tube is OK?

Haven't heard of any warranty claims denied because of the thread. I've had two CSU's replaced under warranty no bother. Unless the tube collapses at that point the thread is irrelevant to the forks operation.

Yep, probably just keyboard warrior mutterings, but most nonsense stories tend to have an iota of truth. I am going to ask the fork manufacturers to see their take on it.

I think that's why OneUp suggest the steerer should should always be 10mm proud of the stem isn't it?

They say 5-10mm is recommended. That tells me that while not mandatory, the reason isn’t dire. I run one of their thicker spacers directly under the cap so my forks with EDC thread have that extra built in when I cut them.

If I think of how the wall thickness is reduced at the top due to the threads cut into it, that still doesn’t make me think of how that would make the steerer any less capable. That’s a mystery I will solve in my lockdown period.

Ordered the pump first, should be here in a month or so given postal service overwhelmed...

So expensive for a bike pump but if it means I can eventually have tools all in there, and in combo with tube under seat I’ll be happy.

I ordered mine direct from them in the Black Friday sale or whatever it was called and postage took for bloody ever. Hopefully your experience is better.
