This is a well-designed and thought out tool. The wrenches themselves seem to be of good quality and have not rounded a bit like other multitools I have used. The torx bit, tire levers and spoke wrenches on the tire levers are welcome additions for trailside repairs. The levers work well and are very secure when attached to the tool. Chain tool is good for a multitool and uses the wrench found on the inside of the tire lever.
I have two issues, though. First, standard screwdriver is very short, which somewhat limits its utility (for most adjustments it is fine, though). Second, and more of an issue for me, the 8mm bit is fitted onto the end of the 5mm wrench. This is not a huge problem, but it is not ideal, as 5mm is very commonly used and requires you to take the 8mm bit off and not lose it in the garage or forget it on the side of the trail. This has not been an issue with other tools I have used, as they have had a separate 8mm wrench, a place where an 8mm bit attaches to the tool not on a wrench or the 8mm bit attaches to the 6mm wrench.
Overall, though, I like the tool. Without the 8mm bit issue, I'd probably give it 5 stars. The bit is hiding somewhere in my garage now.Pros:
Good design, strong tools, lots of features and functionality, good price for what you getCons:
