Tool envy


Theres a place, up some stairs, past some watching bikes hanging on a wall, in a back room tucked away under a chair – It’s a pathway to a wooden box guarding some highly desired Italian jewellery.

These sets are part of the fabric of cycling history, I don’t know any other set of bicycle tools that is as wanted as it is hard to get hold of – naturally they ain’t cheap, and I only think I’ve seen one set available for sale in NZ in the last few years. I bet most of these are in similar places in peoples collections, gathering dust…

…Kinda like this other one, it was in the same place but on the top of a set of shelves with used tires on top it, I have never heard of a mini version of the Campy dream box but here it is:

Hope some of you nerd out on this, Simon.
