Topeak Hexus

http://www.topeak.com/2007/products/tools/hexus16.php

160 grams with chain tool and tire levers.

For me a multitool is useless without the chain breaker.

I have one question to those proposing the crankbros tool.
Have you ever tried to use the chain tool? It is damn near impossible to break a chain with that thing.
I have one and it is in the bottom of the useless junk bucket in my basement now. :(

I use a Blackburn tool that I can't find a picture of and I don't have time to take one and post. It is 85 grams and includes: 2 real size plastic tire levers, very good chain tool, flat head screwdriver, 3 sizes of spoke tools, 4 sizes of open head hex wrenches (although only really cheap bikes have bolt heads), and 2,3,4,5,6 mm ball head hex keys.

Simply an amazing compact and light tool. I have no idea why they don't make it anymore but probably for the common reason - if its not a new design, its a bad design.

What sort of mechanicals are you guys having?


I carry a Crank Bros Multi 17 also. What sort of mechanicals? None on my bike, but I've had to mend other's bikes often enough. Most recently, it was used on Saturday to tighten my riding companion's rear brake cable.

I can't think of a time I used it on one of my bikes.

+1 on the Topeak is a bit heavier than most, but has everything you need.

Yes, I used the chain tool recently to remove links from a munched chain of a fellow rider on an MTB ride who likes to power shift. No problem with using the chain tool. It worked well.

+1 regarding using the Multi 17 to work on the bikes of other riders.

Mine home built, a bit less then 110 g with a real usable chain tool 3,4,5 allens and a phillips one.

I needed to use several tool kits to get one and also some titanium bolts,

I decided to built it after a race where I took 30 minutes to fix a chain... and only after some guys helped me with a real chain tool.

I will post some picks soon

I use the Serfas Zipper RD. $15USD and super compact. Not to mention ONLY 72 grams! It's perfect.

Like Swinter, this 53g version from Park Tools. It goes in a pouch with an inner tube, a box of tube patches, tyre levers... and an energy gel in case I break down.

I have the large one from Park like Pez for MTB, where more things seem to break or need work.
