Now with magnetic closure! Chapman Manufacturing has been making these handy high quality ratchet sets since 1936 just a half hour away from Ron’s bikes in Durham CT. A certified women owned business even! To celebrate its neighbors, Ron’s Bikes thought it would be nice to wrap a bicycle-specific tool kit up in some soft black leather leather and add a stash pocket in the rear. This batch is lined with indigo cotton chambray.
Bits included in the kit:
- 2 – Phillips insert bits: #1, #2
- 1 – S25 Star (for disk brakes)
- 7- Metric Allen Hex insert bits: 2.0MM, 2.5MM, 3.0MM, 4.0MM, 5.0MM, 6.0MM, 8.0MM
- Optional Forager Cycles titanium 22g 8-9-10mm open end wrench and Dyneema cord master link popper is $31 extra and fits neatly in the stash pocket

Rad Bazaar Finds

For sale is my Bassi Hog’s Back in purple/orange. This bike was built by the great team at Kissing Crows Cyclery and has been my go-to bike for summer touring, winter commuting, and zipping around locally. Comes with a dynamo setup, Dark Realm basket bag, and a beautiful half-and-half frame bag from Field and Forest.
985 Woodrup Giro Touring, largely set up with original components. This has been an excellent bike for longer rides and tons of fun on mixed surfaces. The bike rides smoothly and the 32mm tires absorb a lot of the roughness of the locally poor roads here in Duluth. This is a handmade English frame, with Reynolds 531, from one of the premier makers in the UK.
$1500 free ship. Built kit in pics, thanks yall!
