For our latest Collective Reward, we’re excited to give away a bundle of good stuff to two lucky members. Winning members will get a Big Buffalo from our friends at Buffalo Bag in Thailand, as well as a steerer tube mounted EDC Lite tool from OneUp Components. Find the details on each below.
Available in three sizes and a variety of colors, the Big Buffalo is modeled after a traditional saddlebag and can be run up front or in back, with or without a rack. It’s offered in either an X-Pac or canvas construction with a 210pu ripstop inner liner, a 1.5mm HDPE sheet for stability and structure, Duraflex buckles, and 2″ velcro straps for attaching to the bike. Pricing ranges from $138 all the way up to $250 USD, depending on size and fabric choice. For this reward, we have a large grey (30 liters) Big Buffalo Canvas that we’re giving away (left), as well as a small Big Buffalo X-Pac (6-18 Liters) in teal, shown on the right.
Building on their original EDC Tool launched back in 2017, the new OneUp EDC Lite Tool also lives within your steerer tube. But, due to its size, it doesn’t require the removal of the star nut and threading your steerer—yay! Instead, OneUp provides a longer bolt that’s used to hammer the star nut deeper into the steerer tube, providing the extra room needed to install the tool itself. This design also means trailside headset adjustments can be completed using the EDC Tool itself, which is one of the flaws with other steerer tube mounted multi-tools. The OneUp EDC Lite Tool has 9 functions, including 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 8mm hex keys, a T25 Torx, and a flathead screwdriver. It weighs just 75g and is available in six colors. We’re giving away a black one paired with the canvas Big Buffalo, and the Orange with the Teal X-Pac bag.
