The crankbrothers m-17 multi-tool.  It fits anywhere.  Stash it in your pocket, seat bag, backpack or messenger bag and off you go.  It comes with just about everything a cyclist would need to fix their ride, and it looks cool. The crankbrothers m-17 comes equipped with a chain tool, spoke wrenches 1-4, hex wrenches 2 / 2.5 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 8, both phillips and flat head screwdrivers, torx wrench t-25, and 8mm & 10mm open wrenches.  It also comes with a lifetime warranty to boot.  I can vouch for its usefulness because it has helped get me home more than a few times.  I’ve used it most recently to replace a broken spoke on my Lemond Fillmore but it has proven its worth more than once when I have broken a chain while mountain biking.  This is one serious multi-tool and its tough as nails.  The crankbrothers once again show us they are committed to producing top quality bicycle accessories and tools.
