Chain tool / multi tool
#1
Do those chain tools you see on multi tools work ok?  I need a new chain tool to stick in the saddle-bag toolkit and thought if i combine it with a multi tool it'll take up a bit less space...

Anyone recommend me a good one, or if not then a good chain tool?

Trying to keep it cheap-ish

I have one of these and its been great. Seems to have everything on it I need. Chain breaker has been used twice to great effect. They do other models that are slightly cheaper too.  Smile

Personnally I would get a separate chain tool, as the last time I had to break the chain I only just did it with my Park Tools chain tool, but I had left it to rust for a few days :B Park Tools one is good, and I think it was about 15 quid.

Don't break the chain whilst out riding. That's always worked pretty well for me Wink

Hmm the mini 17 looks good for a fiver less and just has 2 less screwdrivers (i rarely use these anyway)

Any other suggestions?

use this Lezyne SV10 -its pretty light (they do a more bling aswell at silly money) - think its 75gram lighter than some on here (so £ for gram saved its pretty good)

+1 for the crank brothers. Used the chain breaker a few times :B and found it a-okay on the trails.
