Kyle Smyth's Bio

Grew up in Southern California and traded in the great Pacific for the mountains in 2010. Couldn't be more stoked to call the Wasatch my backyard & the Unitas my frontyard.

Lover of all things 2 wheeled and particularly enjoy the wonders of biking in,on & around mountains.

Want to talk about bikes, gear, or just escape the daily grind to talk about adventures... give me a holler; its my job.

This is a great lil high quality tap to kick off your EDC setup. Once you have switched over to using the EDC system, this is a great tool to have in your box as you will likely be using on all of your bikes currently or down the road. You will also be owed several beers by all your riding buddies if you own this tap as they will all want to borrow it!

You have to have one of these for your EDC tool install. This thing is simple and brilliant. You will need to buy the tap kit of split one with your riding buddies.

Buy this and you are one step closer to lightening the weight on your back or hips!

This the perfect addition to your already awesome EDC tool kit!
If you run tubeless, you need this tool! This style tool was brought over from the auto world and it works wonders! For quick on trail punctures, this lil gem is what you need! Quickly jam a bacon strip or two into the hole and you are plugged. Then just inflate and you are off to the races!

It is best to keep this close by and not buried in your pack so you can plug the moment a puncture happens Ana preserve some of the air in your tire.

If you prefer to ride your bicycle on dirt or gravel, you should be riding without tubes. Once you have come to terms with that, you should get yourself two sets of these gems. One to aid in setting up your wheels and proper tires tubeless and one set for your tool box or to convince your riding buddy that they should go tubeless as well.

Unlike some other silly shapes that other valve stems may have at the bottom, these circular ones work great with every rim that I have tried them on, and they do a damn fine job.

There is a reason that people that don't run tubeless still know who Stan is, his stuff is class defining for sure!

I have been a long time user of the original Stan’s formula and it has been the best sealant that I have tried so I figured I should give this one a go as it made sense. Well I am a new concert to the Race formula! Less viscous and larger particulates make this sealant the new standard!

If you are looking to start off your home toolkit to wrench on your bike, this is a perfect place to start. Doesn’t fully break the bank and doesn’t have a heap of out dated items like some of the larger ‘starter kits’. The burrito roll is burly and the perfect size to keep in the truck or bring on bike trips. I quickly added additional torx wrenches, a socket wrench, and classic chain whip.
If you are looking to up your tool game, this is a very worthwhile consideration!

To protect the investment of my X01 Eagle cassette, I figured it would be best for me to snag one of these. It has been great for cassette removal and I appreciate the addition of the 1” hex at the end for a Park cassette tool. However this doesn’t fit my Pedro’s cassette tool.
