Impressive! Some of the responses to our last post are dead on or darn close. The pictured item is commonly referred to as the Maillard Helicomatic Freewheel Tool. It's a collectable for many cycling enthusiasts (including me!).

Some bicycles in the 80's came with Maillard "Helicomatic" rear hubs (Including my old '83 Bianchi Nouvo Record). This was the first cluster that could be removed without a big, powerful tool. The hubs came with this cute little pocket size tool that incorporated:
1. spline wrench for the cassette lockring
2. spoke wrench
3. bottle opener (gotta love that!)
One of the first cycling specific multi-tools.

The Helicomatic threaded design was a nice idea on paper, but had some big problems. Thus bike manufacturers stopped using them in the late 80's. For the cycling geeks here's a little bit of info about the Helicomatic hub from sheldonbrown.com.

"Both hub flanges were 1mm farther to the left than those of a normal hub, causing increased dish in the rear wheel, and persistent spoke breakage problems. Many loyal Helicomatic fans tout the ease with which the cassette may be removed for spoke replacement as a great virtue, but if the hub were better designed, it wouldn't break so many spokes!

These hubs were prone to bearing problems as well. Due to clearance requirements, they couldn't fit the normal 9 1/4" ball bearings, so they used 13 5/32" balls on the right side. These didn't hold up well. The cones tended to wear rapidly, and replacement cones are no longer available to fit these hubs."

Thank you all for pitching in! The Maillard Helicomatic Freewheel Tool had three features: lockring tool, spike wrench and bottle opener. It also goes good on a keychain. Our next post has more info on this vintage hub and freewheel design.

Technically, it’s a freewheel and spoke tool. It also assists in the lubrication of the mechanic using it.

Looks like a bottle opener on one side, a twist off opener on other side and screw driver?

If I had to guess, it looks to be a spoke tool or bottom bracket tool with a bottle opener.

Flux Capacitor modulator. Used for modulation of Flux Capacitors.

Church key, aka beer opener 🤣

Bottle opener.

Illudium Q36 space modulator.

Mavic spoke tool

Helicromatic lockring tool

One side is a bottle opener. Beer after the ride. DUH

Google Maillard Helicromatic.

Bong cleaner?

Spoke on one side the other no idea

Theo Willem do you know?
