multi tool v. separates
anyone not use a multitool? i never seen to use all off the various attachments and can’t help thinking a couple of plastic levers, a small chain tool, some sawn off proper allen keys and even a small plastic handled screwdriver for the mech stops woudl be a better bet. Also my multitool doesn’t have an allen key to get avid pad pins out either.Posted 4 years agojsyncSubscriber

Got one which does most things but was stuck to find one which had 15 and 20 torx bits (thread on here about it somewhere) someone recomended a Topeak one of some sort and it’s been great, can add normal socket bits to it as required. Separate tyre levers though.
Why mech stop screws? When do you need to adjust mech end stops on a ride?
When you break a cable
Or something stretches, or bends or buggers up. My new SRAM mech is 3mm allen key which makes life a lot easier.
I carry a 5mm Allen key, 1 tyre lever, chain tool, SRAM link, a pump, a patch kit and a spare tube.
5mm used to be the go to size, now it’s hardly used on mine!Posted 4 years agonickjbSubscriber
Once the stops are set you don’t need to touch them
You might if something breaks and you want to bodge a singlespeed/1×9
+1 for the Topeak Universal Chain Breaker Tool. It even has a hollow handle so can be used an extension for other tools. That and a park folding allen set makes for near workshop quality tools IMHO.Posted 4 years ago
