Can't really go wrong for £3 and will fit in a pocket.

    It's not very long... it'll be hard to get good leverage to undo tight wheel nuts, and obviously to do them up tight enough too. Probably good enough for emergency use out on a ride but I wouldn't look to use it as my only 15mm spanner - for about twice that you can get a decent sized one from Halfords.

  • Yes, agree totally, more for out on the road but better than a multi-tool for wheel nuts.

    I found a shorted 15mm combi spanner, approx 2" shorter than normal and chopped the open end off. It's just the right length for the saddle bag and gives me enough leverage to undo the nuts when needed.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.
