Tool Type: Multi-Tools
I like the way this tool packs. Very easy to carry in a jersey pocket or saddlebag. It has a good variety of tools and you can actually generate some leverage with it. I have used it some around the bike shop to familiarize myself with it but not in an emergency repair yet. It appears to be well built and nicely engineered.
I threw this in my bike bag and forgot about it until I had a chain link come loose 10 miles from home. I dug out the tool kit and was very relieved to see it included a chain tool. The ride was saved. Now any time a saddle needs adjusting I do not hesitate to stop mid-ride, pull out the tool kit and make micro-adjustments.
I like this tool a a lot. Being able to use it as a T handle or straight driver is good. Seems well made but the case could be better designed - does not fit snugly enough. Good selection of drivers. I haven't used it in battle yet so will see how it goes.
This is a nifty tool. You can reconfigure it in different ways depending on the scenario. For example, if you need more torque, insert one of the bits you aren't using into the end of the handle.
The only thing I don't like about it is that whenever I use it to adjust my bars or my seat, I get at least 5 riders passing by who ask if I'm OK.
