Overall Review:

I bought my Mini 20 Pro in March of 2020, so it's been in use for just under 2 years now. Most of the time it sits in my pack, but I've used just about every tool on it at some point. The 5mm, which gets used most often, is still sharp despite being used in high torque situations, which I see as a testament to the durable nature of this product. I chose this over the Crankbrothers F15 because of its smaller form factor, slightly lower price, and the Torx T10. Overall I’ve had a great experience with this tool, and for the price I purchased it for ($30.65), I’m satisfied. That said, there are a few gripes I’ve had with the Mini 20 Pro.

The assortment of tools available

The most major issue is the rust on the 10mm and secondary 3mm. It got to the point where I had to spray WD40 and use pliers to get the 10mm off the 8mm. The other keys are visually rust-free. A second issue is that the chain hook doesn’t clip securely into the chain tool, and thus will likely get lost as a result. Another issue is that in my personal experience, the 2mm’s L-shape has been frustrating. I usually use it to adjust the limit screws on my derailleur, but clearance in the area is limited, and I find myself turning it a quarter turn before having to lift the tool and reattach it. Also, the hinge rotation of all the keys seems to have stiffened up over time, likely from the grime it picked up, but that’s easy to fix with the supplemental 3mm: just loosen off the 3mm head on the side that has stiffened up. 

Rust at the bottom of the 10mm

The Mini 20 Pro has been succeeded by the Mini 18+, and I’d be interested to see if these issues have been addressed. The tool material is still chrome vanadium steel, but the finish looks different. Most of the features the 18+ loses are Mavic-specific, which is a non-issue for most riders, however, the 18+ also loses the Torx T10.
