The Harbour gauge, a gorgeous gem of a dishing gauge. Tools should be functional and sometimes we get to make the pretty as well. These dishing gauges are fully machined from big billets of aluminum to a final shape and accuracy that's as nice to use as it is to look at. Compatible with wheels from 20-29 inches and all hub combinations. We have stand off feet in the works so you will be able to check dish with the tire installed, even those massive 5" wide fat bike tires. The gauge uses a unique spring loaded mechanism to drop the plunger. Press that little brass button on the front and the plunger will drop to the face of the hub. No archaic time sucking threaded indicators here!
The arch will be finished in our signature green anodize while the feet and plunger will be left raw for a nice contrasting look. Those feet have nice clean radius edges so they are safe on carbon rims.
Perhaps the best thing about the Harbour Gauge is the story behind it. The tool started as a computer model like most of our tools but that's as far as it went for a couple of years, until one fateful email from the other side of the world. Tracy Rome contacted us to inquire about a surprise birthday present for her husband Dave's upcoming 30th birthday. Apparently she forgot it the year before and wanted to make the pending day something to remember. So after some secret spy photos of Dave's existing tool collection we pitched her what would become known as the Harbour Gauge. We built that first prototype and commissioned a custom walnut case for it and shipped it to Sydney where the Rome's live. It was one special morning to get a bespoke tool from your favorite bike tool company. At the time it was one of a kind and is a standout favorite in a rather extensive tool collection. Dave said the tool resembles the famed Harbour Bridge in Sydney and that's where the name comes from.
