Pros: Great price and value. Versatile and easy to use. Sturdy build. Compact and comes in handy on the trail.

Cons: Since it is so compact it is difficult to use in some applications.

Recommendation: Great tool and a virtual life saver at the trail side.

Model/Year: 2011

Pros: Compact, fits in jersey pocket.

Cons: Easy to misplace is dropped in pile of leaves. (My own fault)

Recommendation: Great all around tool for fixing pretty much whatever you need on the trail. The chain breaker works well enough that I have yet to buy a "real" chain breaker.

Pros: Compact
Chain tool is excellent

Recommendation: I was very impressed with the build quality when I recently got this in. I haven't needed to use many of the hex wrenches yet, but the chain tool on this is far better than dedicated chain tools I have had in the past, and they cost nearly as much!

Pros: - very compact
- lightweight
- has most tools you could need on the trail
- druable and well constructed

Cons: - small and tough to use in some applications

Recommendation: Borrowed this tool from a freind when I first started riding before I purchased my own. I fould it to be a bit small and tough to use with my big meat hooks I have for hands. It was solid and he loved it claiming that he had had it forever. I choose the Park multi-tool as it had more options and was a bit larger in my thich hands. Very nice tool, just not suited for me.

Pros: Almost everytool you'd need on the trail wrapped up in a compact package.

Cons: Rusts over time.

Recommendation: Even with the minor rust issues this tool gets the job done.

December 14, 2012
Pros: Perfect size, weight, and just the right amount of tools you would need out riding

Cons: None at this time.

Recommendation: This little multi-tool is durable, handy, and not too expensive for the most part when it comes to tools. This is the only tool I have and use it time and time again. Highly recommend this to anyone in need of a tool that will assist in getting you back home or on the trail.

Pros: hexes, screw drivers, perfect chain tool, small, great shape!!!!! its perfect.

Cons: would love a smaller hex for my kind shock seat post but cant complain.

Recommendation: small has great grips on the side, comes with rubber band holder. some need them some dont.

August 23, 2011
Pros: Just as good as the 19 tool, just missing the two smallest screw drivers, why would you need them anyways.

Recommendation: Another tool that works on your bike. Pick one.
