I have been in SLC Utah for around 9 years and have been at backcountry.com the entire time. I like to do everything and know a lot about gear.

When I'm not outside, you can FIND ME IN THE BACKCOUNTRY.COM RETAIL STORE!!!

I just love it there. So many things and so many things of each thing.

This tool is a little messy and you get cuttings everywhere when you use a hacksaw. Stuff you don't wont mingling with your sanctions and seals. It does do a great job except for the mess and and is very will made.

I have to agree with Scott on using pipe cutters
http://www.backcountry.com/birzman-tubing-cutter is a great tool

http://www.backcountry.com/park-tool-threadless-fork-saw-guide-sg-6?s=a

you need to own this hack saw. Super sturdy , it's what we use here in the shop at backcountry.com Get some extra blades a well and keep them new so this saw cut's like butter.

it's nice to have one of these on the trail, Ive needed to loan mine out to others who have bunged up theirs pumping up their tire and being a little too rough.

You can also steel them from old tubes as well as they are universal and save some dollars. I feel for $3 it may be over priced by $2 but I would pay $20 if I needed one and didn't have one on the trail.

I have not had any issues with this chain. It works great and hasn't failed me or worn out prematurely. The quick link is great and I recommend getting http://www.backcountry.com/park-tool-master-link-plier-mlp-1c?s=a
and

This thing is great. It fits nicely on the bike under the water cage and has everything you need to put air in a tire.

It doesn't move a-lot of volume so pumping up fat bike tires or 2.5s takes a bit but with the c02 it gets you half way there real quick.

I use this in the Backcountry.com Retail Store bike shop here in Salt Lake City, Utah. Seat posts and steerer tubes are no match for this thing. It doesn't produce any metal shavings or mess. Go slow to go fast and this thing cuts like butter.

One Con I have noticed is that it creates a little lip where the cutter has pushed the metal to make the cut. Using some sand paper smooths this out pretty easily.

Da kind sup leash 9 ft.

Fits snug around my calf. Leash itself lays flat as it should so it doesn't tangle. I would say it's a good product
