It's not a gimmik at all IMO. It's the fastest opening (pliers anyways) multitool. When you first get one and try it you're like "WTF, this doesn't even work!!!" as you try to get them to snap out...but in a few hours you'dd be deploying them like it's nothing
It's a really good design, but that rattle is a little disconcerting.Def
Well, maybe the bike rattling will overshadow the rattling of the Gerber! Fortunately you don't have to worry about the Gerber coming apart at 140kmh!Def
Been there, done that... only without a Gerber!Def
40kmh, hands that got tied up in the brake cables, a front tire that came away from the bike and a whole lot of gravel!Given that it was virtually the same kind of fall that Christopher Reeve took, I consider myself lucky to have only lost part of my face!Def
Maybe Ducatis are cheaper over there, but they cost so much here that no one who would accidentally let bearings seize up could afford one!Worst part is, I am terrible at maintenance. I like things I don't have to maintain because I have this bad habit of letting proper maintenance slide...Def
When I need them, it's convenient to flick the pliers out. When I need a knife, or a file, or a driver, or any other tool, it's annoying that you MUST flick the pliers out.
There was a customer who had his Ducati Monster for sale...$2,500.It ran fine, but apparently his kid tipped it over, and there was some dents and scratches on one side. Apparently the price plummets if there's some cosmetic damage.
Ok, then are there any real life downside's to the flick out plier's Niggely little thing's like a rattle I can probably live with, but are there any more glaring fault's
