Surly Jethro Tule: Review

by on November 30, 2011

When I got my fixie, I needed a 15mm wrench to be able to release the nuts holding the wheel to the frame (in the event of a flat or to transport the bike).  I bought a Pedro’s Trixie Tool first, but then saw and fell in love with the Surly Jethro Tule.

The photo doesn’t do it justice!  The 15mm hex is angled so that this tool is not a knuckle buster nor will it scratch the bike frame when removing the wheel nuts.  It is a heavy, substantial tool, short in length but with a broad handle that fits well into my palm giving me plenty of surface area to create the necessary torque to remove and tighten nuts.  I really like the hand feel of this tool.  It will fit well into a jersey pocket and is even small enough to fit into an under-the-seat tool bag with the spare tube and CO2 cartridge.

As an added plus, the Jethro Tule comes complete with a bottle opener, something every fixie rider needs to have handy.

This is my go-to tool for removing the wheel nuts on the fixie.

I’ve received no compensation for this review, nor was the tool supplied to me for review.  The tool was purchased by me for my use and the review is simply based on my experience.
