Bontrager have released their version of a stem-based integrated tool system. The BITS (Bontrager Integrated Tool System) installs without needing to thread a steerer tube on any non-carbon 1-1/8" mtb steerer tube.
The tool utilizes a bolted compression fitting and replaces the traditional star nut. Between the ends of the compression fitting lies a multi-tool and carrier. The tool includes commonly used hex bits, a screwdriver, chain breaker, and storage space for a quicklink.
There are two bolt lengths and spacers included to accommodate a range of head tube sizes and steerer tube lengths. The tool isn't compatible with carbon steerer tubes or bikes with threaded headsets.
