At Efficient Velo Tools, We Have a Simple Philosophy
Why bother making any tool unless it is superior to existing products? Dissatisfied with many of the poorly designed and outdated tools with which pro mechanics have been encumbered, Master Service Manager and Bicycle Mechanic Brett Flemming decided he could design and build better bicycle tools. It seemed many of the tools mechanics utilize are either cheaply made, or designed by folks that don’t make their livings servicing bicycles. So a few years ago he offered his ideas, designs and feedback to the “Most Popular” bicycle tool company; they weren’t interested!
With this in mind, Brett decided to offer an “alternative” line of bicycle repair tools conceived by him and developed within one of the busiest bicycle service operations in the Industry: The Bike Gallery (Brett’s former day job for the final 15 years of his 35 year bicycle service industry career) in Portland, Oregon
The result is a selective line of tools used and respected by top mechanics around the world, who are motivated to work efficiently.
Only a handful of our tools are subcontracted out to C.N.C. “job shops”. None of our tools are made “offshore”, rather, the skilled EVT team (mostly Brett himself) personally hand build, fit and test every part of every tool!
Many of our tools are made by hand on “manual” machines, beautiful, magnificently built machines, some of which are 50 years old or more! (Lovingly Restored and reconditioned by Brett ). Brett enjoys keeping alive a fine and noble tradition by utilizing time-tested machining practices learned from Master Machinists. Remember, ALL of the beautifully machined parts on EVERYTHING* made before 1970 or so, were made on Manual Machines…by machinists.
Our tools reflect precision,workmanship and ruggedness simply not found on our competitors products. Try them out and rest assured that you have no risk purchasing tools from EVT If, for any reason you don’t fall in love a tool you purchase, just return it for a full refund within 30 days after receipt…Including freight BOTH ways!
