|E.A.I. Keirin Multi Tool $179.95|
|This is a beautifully finished all purpose tool for the track racer, made in Japan for the Keirin racing market.|
The hook end is both a lock-ring wrench and a "chainless chain whip" (the sprocket fits into the groove.)
The box end has a sturdy 15 mm box for axle nuts, and a 10 mm box on the end for "banjo bolt" type chain tensioners, if you use them.
At a hefty 320 grams and 220 mm overall length, this is not intended for "on the road" use, but it's a beautiful tool for trackside or for the home mechanic.
|Park SS-15 Single Speed Spanner TLP57 $18.95|
Designed and built especially for single speed bikes, the SS-15 is a forged spanner with a 15mm socket wrench for axle nuts, 15mm open end wrench for pedals, tire lever, and bottle opener. Just the right size and length (17cm/7") to take along or to wrench in the garage, the SS-15 is destined to be a single speeder's favorite.
|Action Multi Tool TL2535 $14.95|
|At the other end of the spectrum is this very useful, inexpensive tool.|
You could use an adjustable wrench for your singlespeed of fixed-gear hub, but there's a risk of rounding off the corners of your nice track nuts if you don't use a proper 6-point box wrench.
Another cool item from PDW!

A compact investment cast steel wrench also acts as a bottle opener.
