The Hangar

“As a collegiate cyclist, half decent mechanic, and all-around bicycle enthusiast, Squires Smith began imagining and sketching a maintenance device that he and his teammates needed, but never found. These original designs sparked several years of tweaking, modeling, and modifying, and evolved slowly into the product seen today. As is often the case, the Hangar is a product born of necessity, and fueled by passion and inspiration.” – altangle cycling
