After counltess of miles on and off road, had a chain break o nthe way to work last week.

I'm looking for a lightweight and small chain tool that would allow me to pop the rivets and fit a quick-link.

So what have you got, how big and how £££ (photos welcome)

I have Blackburn tool - has various implements that are not needed which includes a chain breaker but I'm looking for something smaller. (can't find photo of my one)

You could try looking at Lezyne or Topeak. They make some pretty spiffy carry-along tools.

For a race tool I like the Pedro's 6pack. http://www.pedros.com/multitools.htm

You may want to try this, if you already have another multitool without the chain splitter.
