Any recommendations? Not looking to spend huge amounts, but also don't want to miss anything important out.

    Toopeak Hexus II for me. The screwdrivers are a bit wobbly in use but everything else is solid and works great plus it's very handy having the tyre levers, spoke key and chain splitter built into such a small package.

    Crank Brothers 19, the best multi tool I have ever used by a country mile. Every tool works, they are all solid, I can't speak highly enough. But, if you need more recommendations than just me then take a look at the reviews on this link http://www.wiggle.co.uk/crank-brothers- ... ulti-tool/

    The Lezyne multi tools are very good too. Quite a range of sizes, weights, dimensions and tools. They usually include a bottle opener :) ... Eg: http://m.bikeradar.com/gear/category/to ... tool-33672

    Very nice objects too

    Sold! Thanks for the recommendations guys, this one looks great.
  • Handsdown Wilko own brand bike tool only £5 but just as good as ones 4x more exspensive.

    (actually, this is the Topeak Hexus (I like it) which is less than four times more expensive than your suggestion but never mind).

    I'm with you all the way on Crank Bros. Can't find any fault with it.
  • I used a topeak mulitool for the last 3 years or so and had no problems with it. But with it being in my saddlebag for so long it has started to rust. so thought I would invest in a new multitool.

    I've seen this from Specialized and it does look like good value for money.

    Especialliy with the saddlebag and puncture repair patches!(I think my current saddlebag has seen better days!)

    Has anyone got one of these? I know it's only a multitool but......
