Despite the vaguely British-sounding name, the Lezyne Classic Chain Rod is an awfully nice chain whip. The wood handle feels nice in the hand, and the heat-treated steel head will stand up to all the torque your spindly roadie arms can put on it.

Strengths: A good idea - one tool to remove/install a cog. Chain whip will work on a 3/32 chain.
Weaknesses: The wood handle doesn't provide enough clearance to remove your lockring. The guy who designed this apparently never tested it to see if it would actually work. Is that possible? The chain-whip part of the tool is a 3/32. Would have been nice if you could get it with a 1/8 inch to work better with 1/8 cogs.
