Through the years, Park Tool has grown into one of the most iconic Bicycle Tool manufacturers in the world, with tools appearing in bike shops across the globe. What people might not realize about Park was that, like many companies, they had to start small. That’s why when they made their first bicycle repair stand, it was jumbled together with table legs, shell casings, and a Ford axle.
They’ve come a long way since those days, but their problem-solving ingenuity hasn’t faded a bit. Today, they still design and manufacturer tools in the United States, and continue to find unique ways to fix, clean, and finetune your favorite two-wheeled steed.
