The Tall Order Pocket Socket is probably the simplest and handiest BMX specific tool out there at the moment. Let’s take a look…
When Bas Keep started his own BMX company in the spring of 2016, it was big news. Bas has endured a legitimate career as a pro rider, both as part of the Seventies Distribution family and with massive companies like Vans and Red Bull. After putting the years in with Hoffman Bikes and then Cult, Bas took a pretty big leap forward and started his very own BMX company, playfully calling it Tall Order. Under the Seventies wing, Tall Order has some pretty amazing resources at its disposal with regard to design, promotion and obviously distribution, not to mention Bas Keep’s wealth of experience in the BMX industry.
“The Tall Order Pocket Socket is probably the simplest and handiest BMX-specific tool out there at the moment.”
“We’ve seen BMX evolve naturally into street riding being the predominant style of freestyle BMX but for me, although I enjoy riding street and using my pegs, I have always had a bigger passion for riding transitions – whether indoors, outdoors, wood, dirt, cement or brick – the feeling of trying to go faster, higher and land smoother has always been my thing. You like what you like, I guess.
For this reason, tall order frames and parts will be designed and engineered specifically to be ridden at the highest level on transitions of all types and sizes.” – Sebastian Keep
This part itself is much less transition-specific than the frames etc offered by Tall Order. The Tall Order Pocket Socket has the three tools any BMX rider is most likely to need during a standard session – a 6mm allen key, a 17mm socket, and an 8mm allen key. Simple.
