Rarely use it but essential to carry - about to place a wiggle order and need to round it out, so what's your best pick out of this lot?

My response was 'Topeak mini 9',  as I have two and they're great but Wiggle not showing them.  I bought the Park Tool iBeam Mini Hex for the TT bike but beware, it's longer than it appears.

Actually, that's not much help at all, sorry.:whistling:

Topeak sounds good. How bout this one. looks simple. i've never had to use chain breakers or spoke tools when out and about. just basic hex keys and screw driver.

If you need Torx it looks good. probably a better question is 'how much room do you have'? I'm always a bit wary of ramming a multi tool in a bag as I've had one damage a tube before.

got a massive wizz-bang aero spares box on the speed concept. Could put a Nespresso machine in there along with George Clooney.

Ah i see, go with the Crank Bros then.  Forget about George, he doesn't like like he could change a flat to me. :D

Sometimes I'm a dick, sometimes a sarcastic prick.  Maybe even a narcissist!  Does that count as a multitool?  Granted I'd have to lose some weight to fit in your aero spares box....

I thought the princess's entourage followed you around all day , hence no need for  a multitool or even a spare tube

Now you have made your choice and purchase, this thread should wind up in about another 5 pages.
