BIKE MULTI TOOLS
If you have to use a tool mid-ride, chances are the ride isn’t going as well as it could be. Mid ride repairs may not be fun, but if you have the proper tools to perform said repair, your ride will only suffer a minor hiccup and you’ll be happily on your way in no time. Having a multi tool can be the difference between riding and walking home. As the saying goes, it’s much better to have it and not need it, then need it and not have it. If you find yourself needing a multi tool, you have come to the right place. Here at JensonUSA, we have a wide selection of bike multi tools ready to save the day.
As you could probably guess, multi tools got their name because they contain multiple tools. These tools are the essential tools needed for bike repair. There is no reason to bring an entire set of hex keys with you when only 3 sizes are need for the majority of bike repairs. Most modern multi tools contain multiple hex keys, several torx wrenches, both screwdriver heads, and occasionally a chain breaker tool. The larger the multi tool is, the more tools it typically contains. Some large multi tools contain spoke tools and spare master-links for a chain as well. Every multi tool contains a slightly different arrangement of tools, so check the descriptions of the products to find the tool that best fits your needs.
Some companies have also created multi tools that are incorporated into certain parts of the bike. For example, Topeak makes a water bottle cage that has a multi tool built into it and OneUp Components has created a multitool that is stored inside the steer-tube of your bike. Many people like these bike-attached multitools because you can never forget to bring them since they are part of your bike and you never have to worry about deciding where to store them.
