Tools and Spares

Vivente bikes are perfect for the city. In the city, for bike servicing, you might support your bike shop, value their expertise and save your time for other things. But if you head for the road, or the track, you might want to have your own tools. Here are what we use when travelling on an Anatolia or a Deccan. There are a few extra items we like to use in some places, and to carry.


Steering stabilizer
Steering stabilizer

Ideal for on-road, for bikes with front loads, and for train travel. Your bike has a hook behind the fork crown and an M5 mount under the downtube just for this accessory.

Horn mounting bracket and horn
Horn mounting bracket and horn

Ideal for the old world where there are goats and geese and cattle and more on the road. These roads rely on sound and you should announce your presence.

Pipe extender
Pipe extender

Can’t get enough leverage on the 5mm or 8mm hex key? This makes it a much longer arm. It also serves as a front dropout spacer if you have QR and are packing a bike.

Hex keys
Hex keys

2, 3, 4, 5 and 8mm. The 8 is unusual. It serves as a tightener of the cranks and also a crank puller.

Chainwheel Pin Spanner
Chainwheel Pin Spanner

This is the name but the reason you should have it is in case you want to use the 8mm hex key and extender to pull the cranks off. Use this tool to firstly tighten the outer ring of the FSA Single-Key-Release system.

Bottom rack mounting screws
Bottom rack mounting screws

These are special flange-headed hi-tensile screws. You’ll likely never need them, unless you misplace those on the bike. It’s just that they are very special and rare.

Headset spacers
Headset spacers

4 x 10mm spacers to replace the handlebar stem when the bike is being packed for transportation.

Scissors

Mini scissors just for cutting cable ties when you arrive somewhere and need to reassemble your bike.
