OneUp Components has officially released their EDC (Everyday Carry) Tool, a clever multi-tool and storage capsule system that fits in the fork steerer tube. The new EDC high volume mini Pump doubles as tool storage as well…

Posted by Logan Watts

OneUp Components just announced yet another inventive solution to tool storage. Like the Industry Nine Matchstix we tested recently, the EDC Top Cap Tool makes use of a forgotten tube on the bike, the fork steerer. To go with it, OneUp also created two pumps that also store the tool. Here are the details. We are looking to test one these soon so stay tuned for a more detailed review.

OneUp Components EDC Tool, Steerer Tube Multi-Tool

OneUp Components EDC Top Cap Tool

EDC stores essential trail tools inside the steerer tube keeping them at an easy to access position. For the most part it looks as if the EDC has most of the standard multi-tool functions covered (see list below) as well as a sealed storage capsule (or CO2 cartridge). It also includes quick link storage and a compact chain breaker.

The system is installed by removing the star nut and threading the steerer with the EDC Tap Kit ($35). The integrated top cap then threads onto the steerer and tightens to preload the stem. All it all it looks fairly straightforward and rather neat. We look forward to testing a set. See full specs below followed by an installation video and pricing at the bottom.

OneUp Components EDC Pump

The EDC Tool can also be stored inside one of two new high volume CNC Aluminum Pumps. According to OneUp, typical mini-pumps have a volume between 30-60cc. There are two versions of the EDC Pump, a 100cc model (246mm long) and a shorter 70cc pump (195mm, shorter than a regular 22oz water bottle). At 160 grams, OneUp claims their 100cc EDC pump has the highest volume to weight ratio on the market. The 100cc EDC Pump holds the EDC Tool and a 20g CO2 or the Storage Capsule. The 70cc pump holds just the EDC Tool or a CO2.

Both pumps offer a ‘Fast-On Pump Head’ (Presta only). This allows you to firmly push the pump head onto the Presta valve until it bottoms out and then pump. OneUp states that this securely supports the valve stem so there’s no chance of bending, breaking or unseating the valve, and no risk of unscrewing your valve core when you remove the pump. The EDC Pump also has an integrated CO2 inflator head as well as fully sealed, weatherproofed internals and comes with a bottle cage mount.

  • EDC Tool: $59 USD (112g)
  • EDC Pump 70cc $55 USD (132g)
  • EDC Pump 100cc $59 USD (155g)
  • EDC Top Cap / Steerer Plug $25 USD (-12g vs star nut/top cap)
  • EDC Tap Kit $35 USD
  • EDC Gear Strap (x2) $15 USD (8g)

    What a tempting offering with it being so compact and housing the tools. One thing I have a hard time giving up is my mini pump since it has a built in pressure gauge and still weighs less than the offering here.

    Is my reliance on the psi gauge unnecessary or is there a magical way to know that my tubes are pumped up? From experience what I think is an appropriately pumped tire is in reality quite under where I’d like it to be.

  • Yeah, I pretty much go by feel for tire pressure. But there are times when I’ve been amazed at how low pressure it really is…
