    Lezyne have a good range of good quality tools.
    Avoid Crank Bros tools, they're absolute shlt

    Lezyne are good, Toppeak stuff is good quality and excellent value.

    Any particular model I should be looking at?

    Depends how many bits and pieces you want. I like basic, few allen keys, a phillips and flat screwdriver and a T25 bit. I carry a seperate chain tool (Parktools Minibrute) and some decent Parktools tyre levers.

    Love my Ratchet Rocket by Topeak, give it a Google, really nice piece of kit that's well made and has most of the basic stuff you'll need.

    Thats your opinion, I've had crankbro multi tool for 8 months now and it's great quality, has everything you need and it's made solid mines still going strong after alot of use

    Topeak Hexus II about £15, brilliant but not the lightest (it includes tyre levers and chain tool)

    I have one which is a rusty pile of useless censored with poor fitting allen keys and a useless screwdriver which has never fitted a single screw properly.
    Like all Crank Bros kit, it's poorly made, over priced rubbish. Not as bad as their wheels or hydraulic seatposts though.

    Can't really blame the tool if you leave it to rust and don't use it...

    I kept it in my pack. Just like my Lezyne tool which works faultlessly and doesn't have a spot of rust.
    To be fair, Crank Bros have a poor reputation for quality.

    Sounds like you have a grudge on Crankbro's, you got sent a faulty one perhaps? you can hardly blame everything Crankbro's make is rubbish because you had a bad experience, the reviews speak for themselves and fyi I have an old Crankbro multitool thats been sitting in my shed for ages and it doesn't have any rust and still works like new.
