OneUp EDC – now available

OneUp Component’s much anticipated EDC tool/storage system is now available to those who have registered interest. I have my order confirmed and I’m looking forward to getting my hands on mine.

This follows on from my research I covered in Ditching the mtb backpack – research notes

With the release has been a stack of information I haven’t previously seen including detailed fitting instructions, weights and dimensions etc etc.

In this post I’m going to look at the info and what it tells us

The system comprises of 4 parts. The tool system, a pump, a top cap and a set of install tools

Weight for the system is not entirely clear. I’m primarily interested in installing the system in a steerer tube so I have calculated the following from the info available

A small backpack weighs 1.5lbs (680g) completely empty. The EDC Pump and Tool weigh less than 0.5lbs (227g) all in.

and about the pump

Weight: 135g – 70cc, 160g – 100cc (without EDC tool system)

So assuming they have used the lightest weight possible we can make an educated guess at 92g but that does seem a bit too light.

The specs and tools include are:

  • 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8mm Hex
  • T25 Torx
  • Tire Lever,
  • Chain Breaker,
  • Quick Link Breaker (10 & 11SP)
  • Spare Quick Link Storage
  • Flat Head Screwdriver
  • 0,1,2,3 Spoke Keys
  • EDC Top Cap Tool
  • Spare Chainring Bolt
  • Sealed Storage Capsule or 12,16, 20g CO2 Cartridge Storage

Fork compatibility is dependent on your steerer dimensions. Its not compatible with carbon (I guess because the tapping wont work), its designed for alloy tapered steerers

A – Total Steerer Tube Length
Steerer tube length measured from bottom of crown to top of the steerer must be 183-230mm long (7.25-9.00″). Use a tape measure to check length.
B – Steerer Tube Star Nut Diameter
The inner diameter must be between 24.25 mm-24.80 mm. To check, this will require a OneUp “Go, No-Go Gauge” or a good set of calipers (that your local shop should have). If you have a Fox 32 we recommend checking this before ordering the tap and gauge kit as some models have steerers that are outside this range. Otherwise it is very unlikely you will have an issue.
Full detailed info on fork compatibility can be found HERE
The solution to getting the star nut out of the way seems pretty innovative but requires adding 8mm’s of thread to your fork. Some people will be happy doing this themselves, others might want to get their LBS to get involved

All in all very interesting. I’m looking forward to getting my hands on mine and installing it.
