What's a good light multi-tool, with a chain breaker?
This Specialized one has everything I need and is pretty light, any lighter ones with the same tools?

Don't think I've ever seen those before, pretty cool. That carbon multi tool's pretty sweet.

As always the lightest multi-tool is the one someone else is carrying.

My work is done here.

This one is light and cheap, but the quality is not so great:

But if you need it only from time to time it's a great tool.

Prodigy, had one of those. Great as long as you don't have to use the dang thing. Got rid of it.

I agree with you Powerful Pete, I used it only a couple of times and for now it's holding on quite ok.

But it's better to have proper tools near by if something more serious happens.

I really like my Topeak Multi 18 but I don't think it is the lightest. But is as served me and my friends on several occasion and really saved the ride on some days.
