Disappointing - this has tons of stuff you never need or don't have the matching bolts on you bike.

I bet you can save at least 30g by going to a light pump & minimal tools :)

You have to carry cartridges as well with the inflator...

By placing the biggest tools on the outside i can use them as a handle and do not need an extra handle. Got it down to 44g :)

I have a very similar tool I use for commuting!

However, for the sports bikes I use a Ritchey cpr9 (25g stock weight) with the 6mm Allen cut off, plus loose 2 and 2.5mm Allen keys.

Saved 2,5g by tuning the brakes a bit.
Changed the brake nut to an short aluminium as the original was a long titanium
Than i shortened the adjuster screws.
In the mail i´ve got carbon screws for the brakeshoes. Than the Brakes should weigh less than 90g

The original AX titanium brake nut for the front

Thats how the tool looks like. It has the 5 4 3 and 2,5
Besides the Crankarmbolt i can take apart the whole bike with this tool.
Just for the chain i am still looking for a light small tool.

Made the 2,5 and 3 shorter. 15,1g is kinda nice for a tool which works for most of my bike :)

OMG this is nice! Your Ax brakes are wicked light! Did you make your own Powercordz adapters? I love your home made brake shoes too.

Yes these are my own Powercordz adapters. Made them as i still had the AX Orion and they worked great.Did not sell them with the orions which was good as i now do not need to make new ones.

Today came the Schmolke Screws. They came in a nice little box which made the unpacking extra fun.
Now i changed the screws for the fabric "Bottlecage" so they got down to 2,5g
Than there is the rear Derailleur which has now a crabon screw on the wire fastener.
And at least there are the Brakes which have now carbonscrews for the brakeshoes
