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 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 for hi-speed repair.
Brett and EVT LLC offer a 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 15 of his 35-year bicycle repair 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 more efficiently.
Our Signature Series 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.
A handful of our tools are subcontracted out to C.N.C. “job shops”, all within a few mile of our Portland, Oregon workshop. The award-winning Safe Zone Mirror, a road safety tool with no equal, is manufactured at factories within an hour’s bike ride of us. Brett is a relationship-builder who knows our production partners by first name, reflecting the community-based economy for which Portland is famous. None of our tools are made “offshore”. Rather, the skilled EVT team (including Brett himself) personally build, inspect, and test every part of every tool.
Our tools reflect precision,workmanship and ruggedness simply not found elsewhere. 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.
