perfect. @OneUp should pay you for that. Their site will literally let you order the pliers or CO2 with no mention of not fitting in the new threadless sleeve.

Note to company: If you introduce a product that is not cross compatible with other bits on site, you HAVE to update ALL of the part descriptions & purchasing drop downs SIMULTANEOUSLY in the background before rolling out the new product.
Creative products. Lazy roll out. Do it all at once or don't do it.

Not throwing shade. Sorry you read it that way.
It's sarcasm Luke. Do NOT give in to your dark side on this one.

@markmedown is trying to say that the article (and disappointingly enough the OneUp website) don't actually provide a LIST OF THE TOOLS in the V2. Nothing. Not even a feature set.
I don't own version 1 & the sizes of the Allen's, etc in the pics are not stamped visibly.
There is a list of all features of a multi-tool but can't find it anywhere in article or manufacturer site.
It's the #1 thing that matters.

Edit: so the link to OneUp in the article sends you to the threadless carrier page.
To see what tools come in the V2, you have to go to https://www.oneupcomponents.com/products/edc-v2-tool
After you pick your V2 Tool, you can then add a "tire plug jabber & plier kit" for another $35.
It specifies that you can't use the longer storage container in the threadless. It does not specifically state if you have room for the pliers in the threadless setup.

Also does not state if you can use a CO2 in the threadless (but would assume not).

Video quality was oddly blurry regardless of settings or how I watched it.
Hits turns faster than any other rider I've ever seen.
He should start an international training camp to teach flat pedal technique
Still can't believe he won a stage on the Whistler EWS stage a few years ago with a stupidly, rooty technical climb. If flats are all you know...you just go!

I've had to cut a piece of the duct tape I carry into a specific shape to hold bits down
I've cut a tube when I didn't have a patch and knotted it.
Had to hold a cable on with a zip tie and cut the end to keep it from sucking into the gears/chain/cassette
Had to cut a fender off that was zip tied on when it got ripped and dangled onto the tire (tried yanking it off by hand)
Cut a shoe lace that frayed/expanded/ballooned when it caught in a sprocket so I could re-tie it one hole shorter
Cut a piece of a ripped off shoe sole that was hitting my crankarm as I pedaled

Stuff...

Really? We're talking about a racer who ran a set of Tioga mud tires an entire season regardless of course. Just nipped the knobs for drier courses, so he had a uniform feel at all times.

Again If you replace Steve Caballero with the words Hans Ray and the word mountain bike with the word skateboard I'm always right haha

I don't hate Stevie. Just pointing out that if anybody from our sport came to another sport no one would make a video about it because no one would care but anybody that comes to our sport from another sport ooh boy exciting times , big announcements and production videos and feel good stories galore

Was anyone really asking for a buttcrack pocket for phones? That seems like a place to put your phone only if you want to break it... Also, do you really want to put your phone next to your face or even touch it at all after it spent a long day of riding and sweating in that...more

I wanted to comment on shoving a phone straight into the sweat crevice/fart channel riding smack on the tip of your spinal cord. You did better.

Only in mountain biking would we care about this. This is like Transcend Skateboards having an article that Hans Rey has picked up skating.

Are we still so desperate to be relevant that legends of other sports trying ours matters?

So you agreed with me sarcastically but don't have a solution to the problem. Got it.

Added reply in a thread Should we re-think chain guides? 4/6/2021 7:17 AM

It's not an issue exclusive to me. It's a DH issue I think we have skirted in exchange for lighter/minimalist design. Chains tend to catch/jam if broken somewhere in between the guide itself and the chainring. Seems like there should be something built ... more ยป
