Let's talk multi-tools

Recommended Posts

Just saw this one from Wolf Tooth for $40. Looks like it has good leverage, 8mm, and 2 sizes of torx head.

For $70 there’s a version with built in quick link pliers, valve tools, and quick link holder

the second might be my new packless riding tool! Usually just have a CO2 and carts held together with a chunk of old tube like a fat rubber band. Always ends up poking me when I try to squeeze in a multi tool.

That is REALLY sweet, may pick one of those up.

I realized that my old rusty Topeak Alien would work on that one bolt that was in the linkage connector. Swapped out the Crank Brothers for the heavier Alien for now. 

I like the idea of this one. I already have a pair of these in my pack:

The only hesitation on the wolf tooth may be the bits. If you lose one you're screwed so I would want to see how well the tool snaps shut and stays shut.

Yeah I would probably slip a piece of roadie toob or rubber band over it just in case. Seems I read on the non-pliers one the keychain doohickey locks the cover closed.
