Good multi tool for long rides
Great multi tool for long rides, under 20 dollars, lots of features works great!
have mine for >10 yrs. does the job for the price but all allen wrenches rust pretty bad, the rest r good. maybe it was caused by my steaming sweat getting into my back pack but the others did not rust though. if you don't mind ugly rusty tools......
Park Tool Rescue Tool - MTB-7
Still using it after a decade
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Note that the specs on the website is WRONG. There is NO CHAINBREAKER on it. However, it does come with a mildly useful SERRATED KNIFE, FLAT HEAD SCREW DRIVER, and like all good tools - a BOTTLE OPENER.
I bought this multi tool as my first one and 10 years later, I'm still using it. I don't regret it. I used to be peeved that it didn't have a chain breaker and bought it separately. Now I'm still glad I have this because I'm throwing the chain breaker out as I've gone with a carbon belt drive. This has helped me with most of my on-trail fixings but I don't ride hard, just XC.
I did manage to get a couple tires off it before - but after the 3rd time the plastic bits started bending way too much that it can't lift the tire bead over the rims anymore. I'd recommend carrying separate tire levers from these, especially ones with hooks at the end like the Park TL-1 to keep one of the tire levers in place as you go around the rim with the other. You'll only need two, rarely 3, so leave the other one at home.
It's a multi tool and it's a puzzle!
Once I took this tool apart, it took a while to figure out how to get it back together. I broke both tire levers trying to get a tire off. I probably should have gone with a multi tool that had less tools and separate tire levers and chain tool.
Great tool, but
Have no complaints about the tool, works perfect for everything you want to do except for taking off a tire. Bent the plastic on them after using them twice. But if you care other levers this would be the ideal tool for you.
This tool has saved me on many trips. It tucks nicely into any small bag with an extra tube and has all of the necessary tools to do anything from adjusting brake levers to fiddling with the cleat on my shoes to get that perfect position on that long ride.
