Get your bike running to the millimetre, PSI and Nm with a collection of precision workshop tools.
Having a pump with a digital gauge will take out the guess work with an analogue gauge. It will allow you to get correct pressures every time, some down to the .1 of a PSI.
Digital pressure gauge
If you don’t have a pump with a digital gauge on it, a separate gauge like this is perfect. Consistency is king, so once you have a gauge stick to it!
Every tool collection should have a chain checker in it.
Digital shock pump
Get you forks and shock setup perfect every time with a digital gauge.
We have 3 here:
