The Nutter

Many cyclists, including myself, carry a set of tyre levers, a spanner, and a multi-tool with them – in order to repair punctures or perform other road-side adjustments. But what if these three tools could be combined into one?

Currently on Kickstarter there’s a product called The Nutter, which is attempting to combine all these capabilities into one attractive and functional item. It incorporates a tyre lever, a 15mm spanner (the size needed for wheel nuts), a set of hex tool bits, some screwdriver bits, and a bottle opener – all presented in a pouch made of leather and recycled inner-tubes.

It saves hassle, space and weight – and has the advantage of looking really cool.  And so far, the product is generating a lot of support.

Full Windsor, the company behind The Nutter, was originally looking for £8,000 of funding to get the tool into production, but with a month to go till the cut-off date they have already massively exceeded the funding goal by more than double.

UPDATE – April 2013: The great news is that The Nutter was successfully funded. Indeed, it massively exceeded it’s funding goal, and achieved backing amounting to £37,632. The manufacturing process is now in full flow, and it looks like the first tools may be sent our to supporters next month.
