    Great overall tool. That may help you get out of a bind.

    Pros
    Has all the essential tools for on the trail repairs

    Cons
    Use of the smaller Allen wrenches is a bit restricted due to length and placement within the tool.

    Pros
    Great tool lots of tools between crecent wrenches and box wrenches and allen wrenches

    Cons
    only has one of each tool so you will need a second allen wrench tool

    I love this tool, despite the fact that I keep losing mine. Excellent, logical, and easy to use

    Pros
    Just about every tool you'll need in one place, compact and easy to carry along

    Cons
    Also fairly easy to lose, and the latch connecting the two sections of the tool isn't very durable; a little heavy, but not a big deal when it's so many tools in one.

    A great tool with mostly everything you would need on the trail, my only gripe is that it's a little heavy. You do get a lot for the weight though.

    Pros
    Lots of tools
    Chain tool
    Two piece

    Cons
    Heavy

    I've been using this tool exclusively over the past 4 months and it has been great. The chain tool works well too. It's a good one to carry around.

    Pros
    Lots of different tools
    Looks cool
    Well built
    Hinges are adjustable
    Chain Pin Storage

    Cons
    Heavy
    Bulky
    A tool may be difficult to use in certain circumstances due to main body bulk.

    Great trail tool. Would definitely recommend.

    Pros
    Well built. Has almost everything I need in one package.

    Cons
    Some of the tools are a little tough to get to/use. Useless if you forget to bring it.

    Not for those that care about weight, But I'd recommend it to everyone.

    Pros
    The materials are top notch, has just about every tool I need on the trail. Has saved me many "Walks of Shame"

    Cons
    It's heavy, and some of the tools are difficult to do big things with. However, I save the big things when I'm home and have bigger better tools.

    would recommend the product for those who are not so gram conscious riders.

    Pros
    I really like the materials that were used in this product. I also like the fact that this includes the chain tool the tire levers which i have never used but i'm very certain that when i need it, it'll do the job.

    It also comes with a nylon carrying case that has a built in mount which, if you purchase the F55(seat post mount) or F66(stem mount) you can have the tool securely mounted.

    Cons
    the product is a little heavy. I think this is due to the fact that they used good quality material and not just some lame plastic that my 6 year old daughter could easily break.

    I was also surprised that the pedal tool didn't quite perform well. for me, it is too short and i have to exert a great amount of force to loosen my pedals.

    a bit pricy. a 30% reduction in price would have given me the right satisfaction for the product.

    for the price i paid, I wish it came with the F55 or F66.

    For a multitool you cant go wrong. It has everything most tools have plus extra. Put one in your camelbak just in case.

    Pros
    It has pretty much every tool you might need during a ride. Chain breaker works well. Easier to carry than multiple tools.

    Cons
    Heavy/bulky for a multitool. Not as functional as separate tools. The lock together function broke on mine.
    cant get too much torque with allen keys

    If you want a great tool to keep in your camelbak for on the trails this is a great tool. It has practically anything you'll need.

    Pros
    What don't I like! It has everything. Great emergency tool. Small, compact, pretty light weight and full of features.

    Cons
    None

    Great tool a bit bulky but it has it all in this one, a must if your a frequent rider with long epic rides as a common occurance

    Pros
    All the tools you need

    Cons
    some of the tools are almost useless due to the face they are too close to the folding frame
