In the frozen plains of Saint Paul, Minnesota, each December heralds the annual emergence of the famous Park Tool Santa. This venerable, bearded elf first appeared during the bike boom of the early 70’s, greeting customers at Park Schwinn. Over the years, he has demonstrated various bikes and exercise equipment and generally inspired a feeling of good will. Ever since Park Tool sold their bike shops, the Park Tool Santa has been patrolling our factory to help ensure that only the top quality tools will be found under the tree of bike mechanics both naughty and nice.
