Do you want to know more about bicycle tools?

Bike tools are crucial for long routes or cycling in the mountains, so that if in the middle of your cycle your chain brakes, you have to fix the brakes or adjust the height of your saddle you can do so without problems. They are also useful for making quick repairs at home, as you can fix many things without having to take it to the repairs shop.

Most multi tools are small and easy to carry in any bicycle bag or cycling jersey pocket. It is highly recommended that you always carry them so you can solve any mechanical problem that may arise during a cycle and get home without problems.

Bike tool kits consist of a wide variety of tools that are needed for making repairs to your bike. They usually include 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 mm. Allen keys, phillips and flat head screwdrivers and Torx key T-25, but the best cycling tool kits also have chain tools, compatible with 8, 9 and 10 speed chains or even a mini suspension pump.

Don’t forget your tool kit before going out on your bike. We assure you that it is not uncommon to have mechanical problems in the middle of a cycle and there is often no alternative than to do the repairs yourself in order to get home.

Crankbrothers MultiTool 19 Black Red
Very good multi-tool. Meets my needs perfectly.
I would recommend this multi-tool to anyone. I have not used the chain tool so not sure of its ability to work well but the construction of the tool seems very robust.

Perfectly fine, although not sure what size socket is correct for use with a torque wrench. 27mm worked as it was all I had although 25 or 26mm would have been better. Could be imperial for all I know though.
