Just searching for a new multi tool as the Crank Brothers one I've had for years is a bit rusty and frankly pretty heavy.

I was wondering what lightweight tools people carried on their rides. This isn't a thread to discuss saddlebags and frame pumps etc.

I have been looking at the Lezyne Carbon 10 - http://www.lezyne.com/product-mtools-carbontools.php#.WSVgMzOZO2w - This comes in at 80g and has a chain tool which is a nice thing to have.

Pumps are a little more interesting, the trade off with weight is a bit more subjective. Was looking at the Topeak Race Rocket - 85g - https://www.topeak.com/global/en/products/mini-pumps/333-racerocket

I tend to carry a spare missing link, a tube, a park patch kit and a couple of panaracer tyre levers. All of this (inc Crank Bros tool) fits in a Rapha Essentials kit. Will weigh this all packaged up (this is WW after all).

Suggestions for other tools, pumps etc with weights if possible and pros / cons if you have used them before.

In my opinion the Race Rocket looks a bit fugly.

This is my preferred pump... http://www.lezyne.com/product-hpumps-hp-carbonrd.php

This is WW
You don't need tools on route. Just maintain your bike normal
Spare innertire and one lever is enough

Plenty of topics about Pumps, no need for new topics.

Only the stupid discuss over and over again the same things.

Thank you for your valuable input. I suggest if you feel that this topic isn't needed then don't reply as all you are doing is bumping that topic to the top of the forum again and potentially enabling other people to see it and reply.

Regarding the use of tools on a ride, I have used pretty much every tool on my multitool at some point. I've fixed someones chain, tightened slipped bars and seat posts & even removed a damaged rear mech so that someone could ride home. It's nice to be able to offer help and support to other cyclists.

there are new tools and pumps that come out every year...some of which i am not aware of. so this topic is necessary to bring some of those items notice...at least for me.

i haven't seen many new pumps out...but tons of newer tools that are lighter. i've been carrying a Shimano PRO pump that works great. i don't carry tools as i try to maintain the bike.

I use a Birzman Cicada carbon multitool, everything you'd need including a chain tool. The keys are hollow but strong, the sides are made of carbon and the chain tool is aluminium - only weighs 100g. Had it a year and I've used everything on it, including fixing a broken chain (broke twice in one ride) and a roadside repair to my Speedplays which dis-attached from their titanium spindles.

Just think of those extra 20 grams over the Leyzne one Alex...

Really there is no single need for this topic.
Have in mind that a forum degrades by splintered information in multiple topics of the same kind and subject.
A forum benefits by centralizing information. Writing over and over again is stupid and childish.
I have no good word for the members that starting to fill this topic brainless with "answers" and just ignore the information and energy people already brought in regarding this subject.

They products that you want info about are already discussed, The topic is already discussed.
Last discussion was started on 24 april. But there are many more discussions found.

Time to weenie the repair kit.

you are right, that does exist. Unfortunately the title of the topic doesn't contain the words multitool or pump so I didn't find that when I did a quick search. This is where the forum needs to change and have common sticky topics so that people don't keep posting the same information over and over again.

I have a Topeak Microrocket AL pump. It's reportedly 65g. The carbon version is 45g.

As for multitool, I'm still using a cheap Topeak Mini 6. It isn't very light, but it is small. I've been intrigued by Topeak's Ninja line, as it looks like it does a solid job of fitting tools into the bike, but none of it is WW stuff.

I've got a Topeak Ninja P pump at 48g without some of the seat tube mounting stuff.
A good idea can be to take the Philips and flat head off your multitool and use alloy bolts to bolt it together got my no name Taiwan brand multitool down to 88g.

I unreservedly apologise to anyone that's ever read a similar thread.

I used to use a Topeak multi-tool until the day when a derailleur cage bolt came loose and the very short allen key on the tool wouldn't reach. Now I carry a few short (for lightness) allen keys and the chain splitter from the multi-tool, these weigh less than the multi-tool.
