As a cyclist, I’m always searching for improvement. May it be riding technique, power, nutrition or bike tools. I used to carry a 250gramm Multitool with me. A one thing do it all machine. Now, after four years, I realized, that I was only using a few tools on it and that the rest was just dead weight.
I searched every now and then, till I came across this solution. The MT Zoom Multitool.
It’s a neat little tool which has almost everything a roadbiker needs:
– a chain breaker
– spoke keys
– 4,5,6 mm Allen keys
– a screw driver
– and an 8,9,10 mm open wrench
At 86gramms it’s so light, that I don’t even notice it in my jersey pocket. It’s thin and packs beautiful on top of a spare tube with my minipump aside. It’s the perfect solution to go saddlebag free but mechanical secure. The tools are durable and I can attack almost every screw on my bike. The only thing I can’t do with this tool is, I can’t adjust the spring on my pedals. This would need a 3mm Allen key, which isn’t included in this toolset. Handling is also nice, after I found out, that I can use the Allen keys as a lever – picture on the right top.
But for the fact, that I don’t have to use a saddlebag anymore, I love it 🙂
Plus: It costs less than 20€ 😉
