Wilmington, Massachusetts, USA (January 21, 2009) - Today Pedro’s announces the commercial release of the Vise Whip, arriving at distributors across the globe at mid-January. The Vise Whip was created in collaboration with legendary frame builder, author and technical guru Lennard Zinn. The patent pending design received universal praise from shop owners and mechanics at this season’s trade shows and was recently highlighted by VeloNews as a “smart replacement to the old the chain whip.”
“It was gratifying to have so many people come by the booth, pick up the tool and seconds later begin nodding their head in understanding and approval. ‘What took so long?’ typically followed. We’ve all been bloodied by the chain whip, so we’re happy to get these into circulation and force a cut back in anti-biotic cream sales” commented Christopher Zigmont, Pedro’s CEO.
The Vise Whip is a tool for the professional mechanic and enthusiast. It is the world’s first locking chain whip. It fits cogs from 11 to 23 teeth and is eleven-speed compatible. The laminated and heat treated steel jaws lock on to cassette cogs to prevent slipping, while remaining compact enough for the tool box. The Vise Whip carries an MSRP of USD 69.99.
