Just been looking at the Blackburn Mutli Tools - any good? Other brands? Look like a good idea, but I have bought stuff before that looks like a good idea and isn't when you come to use it........... :roll: :lol:

    No idea about Blackburn tools but I use Topeak. Hexus II for the commuting & road bikes and Alien II on the MTB. Never had to give them much abuse but they seem pretty well built and get good reviews.

  • Not a multi tool per se, but I really like the colouring: "Pass me a 5mm" - "Err, the red one dear..." :) ... ctID=14502

    It's not the winning or even taking part. It's the arsing about that counts.
