Shorty after several new repair stands were installed along the Rillito and Santa Cruz rivers were installed, we reported the theft of several tools from the stand at Mountain Avenue and the Rillito River.
Several commenters said tools were missing at other locations.
In the times since we first reported the theft, the rest of the tools have been stolen.
The tools included:
- Philips and flat head screwdrivers ($10 for the pair)
- 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8mm Allen wrenches ($8)
- Torx wrench ($10)
- Headset wrench ($14)
- Pedal wrench ($11)
- 8, 9, 10, 11mm box wrenches ($12)
- Two tire levers ($24)
I’ve added the prices for Park Tool brand tools, which are generally considered good tools. I am not sure what brand were being used in the repair stations, but they were not Park Tools. Also, it’s unlikely a thief would be able to get retail value for the tools.
In total there were approximately $89 is tools that were stolen, plus the damage to the cables.
The pump still works, though.
For those of you who ride the Loop, are there any tools left on the other locations?
