About Park Tool

Park Tool has been manufacturing bicycle specific tools since 1963. Based out of St. Paul Minnesota, we are the world's largest bicycle tool manufacturer. A long-term dedication to quality, innovation, and customer service has made Park Tool the first choice of professional and home bicycle mechanics around the world.

Perspective is an important quality in any business. Our vision is shaped by more than 40 years of experience in the bicycle industry, beginning with retail stores. There we learned first hand the changing needs of quality bicycle repair and maintenance. Our first Park Tool product in 1963 was a repair stand, Model PRS-1, so unique and useful that we were granted a U.S. patent. We now hold many patents on our tool line, which is nearly 300 products, the vast majority of which are manufactured here in America’s heartland.

But we are not standing still: Park Tool Co. continues to develop and refine bicycle repair tools and equipment to improve the service and efficiency of all bicycle mechanics, professional or hobbyist. We will continue to be an active part in the advancement of the sport of bicycling.
