Frequently Asked Questions
The tooling has been designed in such a way that the coin slot can be changed to suit pound coins or euros, or even US 25 cent coins. That means we can ship Euro or US versions from September, just like the British pound coin versions. If you want a Euro or US 25 cent version, please bid for the pound coin version and select the overseas shipping option. We'll check with all those wanting them shipped overseas, which version they want - US 25 cent or Euro.Last updated:
Because the tools are standard 1/4" (6.35mm) hex drive tool bits, you can put whatever you like into the ML123. You can even buy them on Amazon; where they're 'cheap as chips'.
The ones we will sell with out Multilever will be a more upmarket version, from a specialist trade supplier, as we prefer a special coating to be applied to ours. We'll be selling these on our website when we get up & running.Last updated:
A lot of people have been asking me where the Multilever will be made, expecting the answer to be Taiwan, China or even USA. No; wrong. It'll be made in England - Cannock Chase to be precise, a centre for mountain biking (good testing ground!) and road cycling, being in the Staffordshire hills and close to the Peak District. That's why we've marked the levers with 'Made in Blighty', an endearing term for England.Last updated:
We originally designed the top lever with a compass but, when we add the magnets to replace the 'clunk-click' joining system, we were forced to abandon it. We also thought that, since most people ride out with their smartphones anyway, most of which have a compass built into them, we wouldn't be taking away anything that wasn't already there. A thermometer struck us as being the next best thing to have, although you might say smartphones can also tell you what the local weather is doing anyway, so you have a good idea of the temperature anyway.Last updated:
We should have made this clearer. Not only will it store an HRM battery, but it will also store popular batteries such as the CR2032, CR2016 and CR2025. Basically any (most) small flat batteries!Last updated:
Our Multilever system is totally modular. It is designed in such a way that you can take out any one-/two- or three-lever combination. Lever 3 fits straight onto lever 1 (but then you wouldn't have the tool-bit driver) or you can leave lever 3 (the top lever) behind, if you don't think you're going to need the other three tool-bits on your journey.Last updated:
There are two developments we're currently looking at and working at:
1. A fourth lever with a chain-breaker and tyre pressure gauge. This lever will fit under what is currently the top lever, i.e. under the lever with the blue over-moulded tool bank.
2. An alternative top lever, replacing the compass and patch clip with electronics that deliver completely new functionality, taking the Multilever into safety and security in a way no one else has managed to do, or even attempted to do. We'll be offering this first to our current Multilever Kickstarter supporters, as a way of thanking them for getting us off to a good start.
3. A special, slimmed-down, two-lever version of the Multilever for weight obsessives and triathletes.Last updated:
