Fix It Sticks Replaceable

Utilitarian elegance is the hallmark of Fix It Sticks, a unique alternative to the traditional multi-tool. Two metal handles and a handful of bits come together to form a T-shaped problem solver that’s great for dealing with road- or trail-side repairs.

The original $30 Fix It Sticks were lightweight alloy, but came with just four permanent bits specific to road or fat tire applications. Now the Chicago-based company is offering a $35 modular set-up, where the bits are swappable, upping your options to eight (2mm, 2.5mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm hex, Phillips No. 2 and a Torx 25). The handles are magnetized and the T-shape gives you more leverage and can be easier to work with than a multi-tool. When not in use, the whole set-up fits inside a small carrying case that can easily be stashed in a hydration pack, saddle bag or even a jersey pocket.
