MTB emergency tool reviews

The LA Times print edition ran an article yesterday reviewing several trail-side mountain bike tools including the SRAM Power Link, Park Tool TB-2 Emergency Tire Boot, Topeak Hexus 16, and the Park Tool spoke wrench. Of course to be prepared for every possible emergency on the trail you’d need a trailer to haul all your tools. My advice: pick one or two tools to take care of the most likely equipment failures you’ll face on the trail. Raise your hand if you’ve ever had a flat tire on a MTB ride…

Topeak Hexus 16 (my multi-tool of choice).
