Favorite Tool: Hozan C-205

For tours, vacation, and racing, we travel with S&S-coupled bikes and this tool.


It’s a Hozan, C-205 lockring wrench that tightens and loosens the couplings. Well made, steady in the hand, and when used means we’ve either started or ended a trip.

Our road travel bikes are designed by Mark V and built by Bill Davidson. We’ve ridden them all over the Pacific Rim and the States.

We're riding townies, adventure, and mountain bikes. Find recommendations on our store page. As Amazon Associates we earn from qualifying purchases.
