    Directions for use:

    1. Unscrew the top cap then remove the tool bit holder from inside the body.
    2. Select the appropriate tool bit for your crank (5mm, 6mm Hex, T30 Hex) then place the tool bit holder back inside and re-screw the top cap on.
    3. Place the selected tool bit into the end of the tool. You will feel it magnetically snap into place.
    4. Place the tool bit into place on your crank bolt, ensuring it is in straight and central.
    5. Slowly backpedal until the crank buts up against the silicone sleeve on the body of the tool.
    6. Rotate the crank backwards whilst holding the pedal to carry out your cleaning and lubricating regime.
    7. When removing the drivetrain tool from the chain bolt you may need to pedal forward slightly.
    8. Carefully remove tool and store tool bit back inside tool bit holder

    NB: Periodically spray a protectant such as HCB-1, MO-94 or Bike Protect onto the end and magnet to ensure there is zero corrosion

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Is it safe to spin my cranks and chainring backwards on an eBike?

    Yes, this is safe to do. During the development we had this verified by a Bosch motor service engineer who confirmed it would not cause any issues with the motor.

    Will the tool fit all eBike chainrings?

    Our Drivetrain Tool is not compatible with spiderless chainrings, however will fit most chainrings that use a bolt on spider chainring. Due to the tapered spider chainring on some ebikes such as the Specialized Levo SL, the tool bit is slightly too short to extend into the chainring bolt. If you experience an issue with this, please contact us and we'll send you a free internal spacer to help extend the tool bit.

    Will the tool damage my crank arms?

    No, we’ve designed the tool with a protective silicone sleeves that wraps around the body of the tool and rests against the crank arms when in use.
