The price seems great. But if you’re using this tool out on a ride, a mechanical has interrupted your ride. Would you trust a £4 tool to always solve this problem reliably? I’ve seen these cheap tools snap at the wrong moment, luckily they were riding with others who could offer up another tool. I’d personally want to spend money on a well made tool, not a Chinese knock off, that would last forever.

Remember, your multi tool lives in a saddle bag or tool bottle for months and months and only comes out in emergencies. You want it to work 100% of the time in this situation. I can’t see this lasting long.

Do you not think these are the same thing, made of carbon steel, just without the branding?

This weird idea of a 'Chinese knock off' needs to be addressed as where do you think the more expensive multi-tools were produced? Just wondering. By all means pay what you want to, and don't buy this, I am merely suggesting alternatives.

I've experienced not being able to fix my chain, it's something you only do once. Here's what I've optimised my equipment to run with.

Road bikes:
Topeak mini 9 pro
Park tool chain tool
2 Park tool levers
KMC missing link
2 inner tubes
Pair of nitrile gloves

Commuter:
Topeak Hexus 2
Park tool chain tool
2 Park tool levers
KMC missing link
1 inner tube
Puncture repair kit
Pair of nitrile gloves

The gloves may seem silly but once you've faffed about with the chain, you can clean up quickly by pulling the gloves inside out as you take them off.

There's a good video here of how to repair your chain. The Topeak chain breaker seems to contain a nifty little chain hook!

Just ordered a chain breaker for £4 off eBay!

This will be a good tool to have in the bag anyway. Cheers OP.
Good spot. Does the 15-in-one have tools that you might actually need (over the 11-in one)?

I'm looking for something for my son and what you mention makes a lot of sense. The idea of him being stranded in the middle of nowhere because mum chose to save a couple of quid doesn't sit too well with me!

I bought cheap allen key's for a few small jobs only to see them fail and I then had to go and spend more money than I would've originally because I needed them there and then. My father warned me against buying cheap tools, I now understand why!

I was just about to say the same. In fact, my Lezyne was £12 in a sale. At that sort of price, this thing makes zero sense.

I have one of these and they are pretty handy and well made.
Chinese knock-off? Wow

The vast majority of products are either pieced together in China or contain parts, especially electronics, that are manufactured in China. Are you suggesting that my Sony TV is in reality a "Chinese knock off" because it contains parts manufactured in China?

Didn't think so.

Personally I have a large number of products that were 'made in China' and NONE have failed or show any signs of being 'inferior'.

If you think just because they are made in the same part of the world, country even factory they will be of equal quality you are on for a massive surprise...
Remember to actually look what you need for your bike, and how far would you be away from home if you had problem . I have a decent topeak multi tool but really could replace it with one 5mm hex. If this was reduced to this price from £20 it would look like a good deal suddenly.
Edited by: "rourkey3" 14th May
Cheap tools. Rubbish quality made from cheap materials that will let you down when you actually need them. Especially the chain breakers. I wouldn’t bother
Look like the crank brother mulitool. Buy one of them for £20 last u an life time.

Second this, I actually have one of these tools from Ali express. The steel is absolute rubbish, it will strip very quickly and all of a sudden you end up with a circle instead of a hex key.

The Topeak mini 9 doesn't come with a chain breaker and it's just to stop the multitool getting covered in grease, going back into my saddle bag and then getting grease on everything in there
I've had a similar tool from Poundland I recall but not with as many tools. My point however is the mechanism is terrible for opening and closing the tools. The screws become loose and it falls apart. I'd personally avoid this but for the price maybe ok for emergencies. Heat all the same

The issue is that Chinese "me too" manufacturing ISN'T the same as western products sent to be made in china.
Copied stuff tends to have a "cost cutting" exercise applied. "So, they use XXX alloy, hmm, it's expensive, is YYY alloy ok, good, use that" but it's applied everywhere. "Can we use a cheaper plastic/fastener/mould/metal/rivet instead of screw" etc.

Even the "made in the same factory" stuff can be misleading. The factory will have the plans, get them checked, "made cheaper" and run that line too. (Equally could be the same thing minus branding, there's little way to know).

None of this for 1 second suggests that western design/branded stuff is ANY better as it's equally often a product made, offered to various brands to "claim" it. Just... don't assume at all, in any direction. Read your reviews, check as best you can what you're getting and see from there. £16 vs £4 for EXACTLY THE SAME THING is clearly just as stupid as expecting everything that's 25% of the branded price is just as good.

Having used these kinds of tools, they're often less user-friendly than more expensive alternatives, prone to rust or the screw falling out etc. But no doubt very useful for someone who's just starting out and wants something to start off with in their bike pack

I keep my tools in a pack that fits in a water bottle holder. It was £1.99 from Planet X and can just as easily be thrown in a rucksack (or any other bag) when I'm carrying one. Some people just use an old water bottle that they've cut and made a closure out of duct tape.

It's worth going over your bike and finding out what fittings it has. My old Lidl mutltool lacked a 15mm spanner and T20 Torx that my new bike required - so I added a t20 Torx to my bag and replaced the 15mm nuts with hexnuts.
In addition to a pump (mine's inside the seatpost coz I can't find one small enough to fit in a small toolkit), self-adhesive patches, tyre levers and nitrile gloves I also carry:
- battery pack and cable for my phone
- 2 migraleve
- spare contact lenses
