Nice one Beat  :cheers: For a multitool forum, I'm often surprised how little coverage the bike tools get.

I have a couple of Topeak tools (Ratchet Rocket and Hexus II), but it'll probably be the weekend before I can do pics  :salute:

That's what I think too... and there are really a lot of variations, some like the one above pair excellently with a MT. So, I'm going to post all of mine here :D.

99% of the times I just carry and use the Micra.
Sometimes I also carry this from LIDL:

Next up... PB Swiss Tool
It is also released under the Victorinox brand but it is a PB Swiss Tool... Available in several colors.
This is great quality and a great tool. The tire levers work well and with the bits you get all the versatility you need. Only thing missing is a 15mm wrench (but then my bike has a safety quick-spanner so I don't care).
Probably hottest item here is the adapter that turns any 5mm Allen into an 1/4" bit-holder... Spoiler: got a 5mm allen bit for my Cyber-Tool :D

Nice, probably great price value. How large is it? I always have trouble judging the size.

Men always have problems with size.... :whistle:  apart from me.

I would say cybertool, large size, if it makes sense. It also splits in two and the tools lock.
It is not the most solid tool but it is not bad. I think i had some more details somewhere but searching does not help. They sell it with a bike bag for 15 or 10 euro.

Four versions of this tool, available. I only got the two soft cover ones.
Topeak Ratchet Rocket Lite & Lite DX

The Lite is one of my favorite toolkits of all time, very pocket-able. The Lite DX features a bit extender for some extra reach and two tire-levers but is also much thicker.

Well I got 1 more ;)

Topeak Lumi Tool 7
Pretty boring tool-set with 6 Allen keys and a PH2... The only thing worth mentioning is the removable flashlight. It's nice and bright, and probably quite useful on an evening run (unless you carry another flashlight).
EDIT: Forgot to mention, this one comes with a nice neoprene belt sheath.

Allen: 2 / 2,5 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 mm
Phillips: #2

Nice, do I see this right, the sides with the blue dot are removeable and can be used as tire-levers?

I think bike-tools complement MTs well, as they have Allen keys :salute:

Sorry I am late to the party. Did not see this until now. These are pics I took last year for another thread. Over the years I've had several bike MTs but I keep giving them away not newbies to the sport and get newer ones. This is what I have now.

Pic 1 - I carry a Park Tool IB-1 and a Leatherman Squirt PS4 with my road bike. Bare bones setup, good enough to limp home.
Pic 2 - I carry an Older Park Tool MT with a Leatherman PST with my MTB. Don't think they make this PT MT anymore. This was my first bike MT and still use it. Had to get another Torx MT to keep up with the newer equipment.
Pic 3 - Other bike tools. Mostly Park Tools. There is another box for the bigger tools like the derailleur hanger checker, headset press, etc.

I love working on my bikes. All the bikes I have now have been built from the frame up by me.

That's a Genuine Innovations MT. They mainly make tire inflation and repair kits. Since this has tire levers it falls into that category I guess. Here are some close ups.

It's amazing how many rather simple bike-tool designs are out there.

Without the tire levers it's very compact. I once had a roadie variation of that tool made by E3 cycling.

Yes, I have seen a good no of bike MT tools over the years. Unfortunately bike stuff happen to be very expensive. So never considered collecting them.

My oldest memory of a MT is a bike MT. When I was very little I was taken to school on a bicycle by my grandfather and he had a tool which was a flat piece of iron with the different nut shapes cut out. I was instantly attracted to it, even at a booger eating age.

My grandfather's bike MT I was referring to in my earlier post looked like the two in the center.

My bike tools are my Swisstool X which is my edc and a 1 euro costing 6 inch adjustable wrench which i keep in my jacket pocket.
I never really had any problems with my bike except for a couple of times when i put to much force on the pedals that cause the rear wheel to pull forward on one side and that causes the tire to rub against the frame. Loosened the main nut and put the wheel back in its correct position.
