New Product: Avenir Cinco de Fixie Tool

There's certainly no shortage of options when it comes to bike multi-tools to handle on-the-go repairs by the average cyclist. But when it comes to fixed-gear riders, the components have some special requirements that need special tools.

Along comes the new Cinco de Fixie wrench from Avenir!

It's got a 14mm and a 15mm open-end box wrenches, the most common sizes for wheel nut installation and removal. It's got a lockring tool for tightening your cog lockring (also handy on some older-style headsets and bottom brackets).

It's also got a chain whip, which is used to tighten your fixed cog on your hub. The chain whip can also be used to help in removing freewheels and cassettes, but who would want to ride with a freewheel or cassette?

Finally, it's got the #1 tool you need, a bottle opener! (Does PBR even come in bottles any more?)

It also comes with a handy carrying pouch, so you don't get grease all over your tight jeans.

Just $18.99 each, in stock today at all three Century Cycles stores!
