Feedback Sports 90/Straight Pick
Feedback Sports makes the best professional portable workstands and has an excellent line-up of innovative bike storage solutions. In creating their tool line, the same principles and commitment to durable quality ruled the process, which was largely informed by testing with the Tinkoff Pro Cycling team. This dual-end pick tool with a straight point end and a 90° end is a perfect example. The tool steel is high quality Chrome Vanadium, which will withstand daily abuse and resist corrosion. There is a legitimate firm rubber handle with a file tread zone at the center of the tool's length which makes handling easier when grease is present, or dry for that matter. The shop standard tool most of us know well has a narrow knurled steel handle, which can be tricky to manipulate when hands or gloves have any lubricant on them. We also find that although some pick tasks are simple, single efforts, others may be more challenging, requiring some tool control and leverage. The grip makes these tasks more tolerable, with less hand and wrist fatigue. When your day is built of small tasks requiring hand tools, these stresses add up.
This dual pick is one of the few tools in the Feedback line-up that isn't more compact or packable than the one it replaces, but the usefulness and comfort provided by the grip is well worth the small additional space required for storage. Pro and shop mechanics have had great input on Feedback's tools, so usability has been a major factor in the development process. Home mechanics will appreciate the pricing, durability and details of this simple, but highly effective pick tool.
