Keep your ride rolling
For longer rides and tours, having a bevy of tools for small fixes and repairs at your disposal is highly encouraged. And while throwing a few hex wrenches in your saddle bag is useful, a tool such as Crank Brothers' b17 Multi Tool, is just as light and features all the tools necessary to keep your ride on schedule. It will also negate having to make that call to your significant other for a ride home.
The b17 weighs in at 230grams, and while, sure it's added weight, it's a small price to pay for peace of mind. The b17 was constructed from stainless steel -- durable, beautiful and resistant to rust. Leave it in your seat bag year-round without worrying about corrosion. The tool bits are 25mm long which makes it easy to reach hard to get to places on your bike. The b17 includes the same tools as on the b14: hex bits in sizes: 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 8, a t-10 and t-25 torx, size 1 phillips and flathead, size 2 phillips and flathead screwdrivers, and a magnetized bit socket driver. Additionally the b17 features two spoke wrenches and a chain tool. Now you won't be stranded when your chain breaks on the gnarly uphill.
The Crank Brothers b17 Multi tool is available in One size and in Stainless Steel.

- Q & A
Quality tool, but I prefer the M17
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The screw driver heads are hard to manage (pull in and out of the keeper) under ideal conditions...forget it when your hands are oily and cold. I prefer the M17...it's actually a little lighter and has more tools.
Great tool, hardly any complaints
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
It is a super versatile tool and it isn't too heavy but it ain't too light either. The bits wobble a little bit in the driver section of the tool but it doesn't really affect it much. For a compact, functional tool it is pretty great.
