While we initially thought the fanny pack was a terrible fashion statement, we've grown to love the comfort associated with leaving the bulky hydration pack at home. The challenge has become finding ways to store ride essentials on the frame.
While we've seen a few manufacturers attempt to store tools or chain tools in their steer tube, their new Everyday Carry (EDC) Tool from OneUp takes the idea one step further. Inside a neat assembly, the EDC contains a small multi-tool, chain breaker, and extra link.This looks interesting! Can't wait to learn more from @oneupcomponents. #Repost @richie_rude1 ・・・ Whats that in my headtube? @oneupcomponents making carrying tools easier. #getoneup Ill be riding with it out here during @crankworx Rotorua #ews

Want to carry the tool on multiple bikes? The pump version comes with a handy bottle cage mount that can be swapped between bikes.
If you're really attached to your star nut, they're also offering a version which sits inside their new 70cc and 100cc pumps. The pump head cleverly doubles as a C02 inflator and there's enough room inside the larger version for a C02 canister.
To catch a glimpse of how it works, hit the video above. OneUp is hoping to ship the EDC in the next two to three weeks. Pricing has yet TBD, but should be around $60.
