    Reliable trail-side tool

    Rating: Featured Member Review
    The Good:

    Slim and compact, reliable, contains all essential tools.

    The Bad:

    Chain tool is uncomfortably small. Prone to rusting. 8mm hex key is not very useful.

    Overall Review:

    I've been using this tool for trail repairs and even occasional garage work for four years without any serious problems. It fits easily in a jersey pocket or saddlebag. It includes various sizes of hex keys, a T25 torx key, flat and Philips screwdrivers, a chain tool, and spoke wrenches.I haven't had a problem with any of the bits rounding.The hex keys are great, although the 8mm seems unnecessary because the tool is too short to provide the kind of leverage needed with most 8mm hex bolts. The flat screwdriver could probably be eliminated too. The chain tool is short, so it's difficult to grip, but it does work and has Read More »

The tool has picked up some spots of surface rust over the years, but it's still working just fine. I never go on a ride without it.

    17 ways CrankBrothers makes you faster and more consistent

    The Good:

    This bad boy fits everything on all of my bikes trail, single speed, commuter, jump, and friends bikes! CrankBrothers make a few models with fewer and more tools, depending on what your needs are.

    The Bad:

    Just a little extra weight to carry along.

    Overall Review:

    It has saved more than a handful of rides and that along makes it invaluable. Nothing is worse than finally getting out on the trail and few miles later you or one of your buddies is broke down and the fun stops and the sweating begins. It is almost like having a whole bike shop of tools right under the seat. I have this exact one other than my 17 has some ano-gold trim. The chain tool functions properly and you can get some good torque on it to pop those stubborn links and the spoke wrench works like a charm and isn't unmanageable considering the rest of the tool is connected. This little piece of trail wonderment has Read More »
