i am always on the lookout for good bargains so while browsing the overflowing aisles of saizen i chanced upon this shiny little thing — a 15mm combination open and closed wrench. More often than not, fixed gear and singlespeed hubs come with 15mm nuts instead of quick-release skewers so if you’re a fixie or singlespeed rider you are required to have at least one in your toolbox. php 88 is such a good price for this but whether it will last or not remains to be seen. i’ll give a yelp when something unfortunate happens to it. in the meantime, i have a shiny new bike tool.
