Multi Tools
 
 
 
 
Multi-tools are a back pocket or trail pack essential. Containing everything you need to fix most mechanicals a multi-tool is your workshop in miniature. If something goes wrong with your bike you need to have both the tool and the skill to fix it – having the right multi-tool can save a ride from disaster.

A good multi-tool should be light and compact but strong enough to stand up to the job and tolerate plenty of repeated use. Check that the tools are large enough to offer sufficient leverage when working on your bike. Multi-tool essentials are a range of Allen keys; spoke key, tyre levers, screwdrivers and most importantly a chain splitter. Some offer very pared down lightweight versions for racers others offer far more.

When buying a chain tool it's worth looking over your bike to make sure there is nothing specific you need, some parts, such as disc rotor bolts now need a Torx bit so check your multi-tool has the size you need.
