Park Multi-Tools

I joked on Twitter recently

I lose multitools like my drink at a party.

And, it’s true, but my friends at Park Tools have my back and sent me a package FULL OF THEM. You know, I can’t really tell you which is better or even rank them, I just have them now in a bowl near the door, and grab one that either fits in my fanny pack, a pocket, or my backpack for when I’m traveling.

I’ve actually used mine more on suitcases than my bikes recently, but always have one now; even if I misplace them all the time.

The best part about Park Tools is their quality, of course, but also availably.

You can get them at a shop or from Amazon and for reasonable prices. I’ve linked to a few of them.

Of all those, I stuff the rescue tool into a bottle cage keg that I carry on my brown bike. It costs $10.99 and features

  • 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, and 8mm hex wrenches; 8mm, 9mm, and 10mm socket wrenches; and a straight blade screwdriver.
  • Each of the nine tools is carefully positioned so the MT-1 can be effectively used on those “tough to get to” nuts, bolts, and screws.
  •  Nominally 110mm long, 35mm wide, and 8mm thick.

And, after years of riding in the rain with it, I know it’s impervious to water.

Shared above, the one tool stuffed in my bag for road trips and mountain biking is the much larger and more capable Premium Multi Tool.

I have the MT-20 in my backpack, sure it’s bike-related, but it’s saved me on the road more than once and for about $20.00

Here’s a video about their quality multi-tools. Sure they make a great gift; especially for the absent-minded cyclists like me. I have the happy hour kit for beers and want the Corkscrew Bottle Opener too.
