Following the release of their EDC Tool, OneUp came out with an interesting threaded EDC steerer tube top cap to hold the tool kit. I’ve used it and it’s nice, but it requires you to tap and thread your steerer tube to install it. Their new EDC Threadless Carrier is much simpler. It replaces the star nut and lets you preload your headset with a bolt. This offers a no-tap install option that lets you store the EDC V2 Tool inside your stem/steerer tube without threading your steerer tube. Find photos and details below…
Additionally, OneUp released the new V2 EDC Tool with an improved chain breaker and spoke keys. It also includes a small secondary storage capsule for tubeless plugs and jabber. According to OneUp, they made it easier to remove with a lower friction design. The V2 EDC Tool is compatible with all V1 storage options and retails for $59.50 USD.
The EDC Threadless Carrier works with the EDC V2 Tool (you must use the small EDC V2 Storage Capsule with the Threadless Carrier), NOT the V1 EDC Tool (green multi-tool). The Threadless Carrier is compatible with most forks except for a small number with very short steerer tubes. Your fork steerer tube length must meet the minimum length requirement. To find out if it will work for you, measure from the underside of your fork crown to the top of your spacer stack, or top of your stem if you aren’t running any spacers above your stem: Fox (except Fox 38 with oval steerer) = 190mm minimum; RockShox = 210mm minimum. The Carrier is not compatible with Fox 38 with oval steerer, Giant Overdrive 2 forks, Cannondale Lefty forks, or carbon steerers.
The EDC Threadless Carrier is available for $40 USD in eight colors (Black, Red, Green, Blue, Orange, Purple, Gold, and Oil Slick). Find out more over at OneUpComponents.com.
