Hello Friends of the Original Fix It Sticks!
I try not to bother y'all much, but thought you might be interested in our latest development for Fix It Sticks.
We are finalizing the development of a completely awesome bracket to hold Fix It Sticks on the bike. This will get the tools out of your bag, clear up some space and look good doing it too. It works really well. I love this thing!
I've been testing pre-production models since September. I raced my entire Cyclocross and fatbike seasons with a bracket and tools installed. I never lost a single one.
Here is a 1 minute video showing the bracket in action this past week while mountain biking (thanks Sean) and testing the bracket on some rough, rocky trails with gnarly descents. No problems whatsoever even using the heavier Replaceable stick on one side.
There are some things to be aware of though. In the 2nd year of production I made a change to the dimensions of the sticks. So this bracket will NOT work with original Kickstarter versions of Fix It Sticks. In order to make that not as painful we are offering a substantial discount to make getting a new set not so bad. The new sticks come with the new bracket AND use plated bits to minimize the rust potential.
So...visit the link below and pre-order a new set of tools with the bracket. You can buy just the bracket if you like, but I'll repeat this information again: The earlier versions (including the Kickstarter versions) have a middle that is 1.25" in length. These will NOT fit in the bracket. More recent versions have a middle hex area that is 1" in length. So please make sure to measure this if you are going to order the bracket by itself.
Again, we are offering a 20% discount on the tool/bracket combo for the pre-order. We expect to ship prior to 7-15-16
Just enter "bracket" at checkout to get the 20% discount.

In other news:
Our friends at BiKase, in Milwaukee have recently launched their own Kickstarter to support their latest development "The SuperBand". It is a handy little thing that allows you to attach lots of stuff to your bike/stollers/scooters/segways/gokarts/roller coasters ect…It will even hold any Fix It Stick ever produced!
I tested the SuperBand the same day as the test video above and had fantastic results as well. No noise, no loss, no problems! Check out their campaign here (They are past goal and I am 100% positive they will deliver) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1049870600/superband-a-stuff-management-system-for-your-ride
Thanks for your continued support!
