The Lezyne Stainless 20 contains all tools you require when you are on the road. It is a great tool to fix all your bike problems when you are far from home. The tool gives you a lot of tools at the lowest weight possible. Also the tool's design is great. All the tools you get make the tool a little wide though. If you don't require e.g. the serrated knife, you could go with the smaller Stainless 12 edition.
Tool contains: 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8mm Allen keys; Philips and flat heads; T25 Torx bit; Stainless steel chain breaker and forged aluminum sideplates; Tire lever with 10mm open-end; bottle opener with 8mm open-end; 3 spoke wrenches (1x Mavic splined, 2x square sizes); 60mm serrated knife blade; disc brake pad expander.
