My Park Tool IB-3 ibeam multitool is great and at 180g quite light. Problem is that a piece of it broke off. I need another multitool, and am tempted to get the same again, but do you wonderful people have any recommendations? Can I do better?

Crank Brothers Multi 17 is my choice.

Not too heavy, rugged, compact, and fairly complete. If you want less, go with a Multi 10 or 5, depending upon which tools you don't think you'll need.

Okay, it isn't really that big. :oops:
In fact, it is quite small: Size: 4.8 x 2.8 x 1.8 cm

Park Tool MT-1 multi-tool, one piece and weighs 53g.

I also have the IB-1mini-tool if I need more options. I dropped it and everything came loose, but a few turns with another hex wrench and it was good to go.

Thanks flameboy... hehe talk of unnecessary use of CF, but hey it looks good and Pedros has been good to me, I don't own one though, wish it had screwdrivers.

Wow!!! Topeak has some nice new tools, I have an Alien II, but it is so huge it stays in the car. This Hexus at 160g looks very reasonable.

Same here...

Image

I'm on "break in" rides a lot of times and this thing just has pretty much everything needed when you're rolling round and little things need adjusting... No idea what it weighs, but it doesn't seem heavy and it has lots.

For regular rides, tHe mini6 is sweet. Icetoolz (same folks making things for Pedros and distribute through Promologic here in the US) sells a cheap version that gives a bit more reach which is nice.... but a trade off as it's a little wider.

For carrying on the road? Nowt, along with good home maintenance. Last time I can remember having a need for any sort of tool on the road was my first ride on the first set of wheels I built, when a spoke key to tighten the rapidly self-loosening nipples would have been handy - but that was nearly 20 years ago. What sort of mechanicals are you guys having?

(I've undoubtedly cursed myself now - good job I normally carry a phone!)
