Submitted by waldoz a Weekend Warrior from Battle Ground Wa. USA

Date Reviewed: August 20, 2010

Strengths:    Nice tight package had all the tools I needed to get me buy if I ever got stuck.

Weaknesses:    That dumb plastic tab on the pack snapped when I jump my commuter off a curb. I can not belive that they designed that plastic tab that connects to the bag so small and weak.

Bottom Line:   
I think this bag would be fine if your not jumping off of curbs too much. I have only had it for four weeks and really how could they even think to have such a weak point on a tool bag. The good thing is I called them and they are sending me out two replacement plastic tabs. He first suggested I buy them. LOL Otherwise bag is ok so I gave it three chilis

Date Reviewed: July 22, 2006

Strengths:    Secures under the seat very well. Tools work well in a pinch out on the trail as they are supposed to. There is enough room in this that you don't need to carry a complex hydration system w/ storage... it's expandable too

Weaknesses:    You're not going to be opening your own bike repair business with these simple tools, the quality just isn't there. The allen wrench multi-tool is very handy, but it's fram is plastic and though I haven't broken it in 3 years it always seems close. Tire levers included are useless, get some of "Pedro's" unbreakable ones.

Bottom Line:   
Overall the product does exactly what it's designed to... trail maintanence, I'd like to see better quality tools, and a more eye pleasing design to "blend in" under the seat better. It was worth the $25 for me, but be carefull... a kick-butt multi tool and Pedro's Tire Levers would be a better investment if less than the price of this.

Submitted by Oz a Cross Country Rider from Abilene, TX

Date Reviewed: April 18, 2005

Strengths:    Like all other reviews, the bag is great.

Weaknesses:    Multi tool has finally hosed me for the last time, upgraded today. The rest of the odds and ends in the bag worked as advertised

Bottom Line:   
I used it for a few years, putting it back together after every ride or two. The multi tool just kept falling apart in the bag due to ride vibration. After a few truly nasty spills and a water adventure I won't get into, the foam separator in the top pouch has finally started to detach from the bottom of it's pouch/lid of the bottom pouch. Like I said above, I will keep the bag and remaining contents, but I'm not even wasting my time giving the multi tool to my kid, it goes in the trash tonight. Would I buy it again? Nope, would have bought a bag and a better tool. 2 and 2 on the chili meter... the bag was too good to completely dump on it.

Date Reviewed: February 28, 2003

Strengths:    steardy, stable when riding, all necessary tools in one bag. attached to seatpost very well. good size bag for extra tube and cell phone.

Weaknesses:    heavy (590 gm)

Bottom Line:   
Great buy if you don't want to carry any thing with backpak. Very well designed and binded to the seatpost very tight. But if you ride with Camelback all the time, might as well throw the tools in backpak and save some weight on your bike. For me, I do both ways and it's very easy to detach or attach from bike too.

Date Reviewed: December 26, 2001

Strengths:    The Bad is really good and i'm sure that the tube rpair kit would work well

Weaknesses:    All the tools, particulary the Chain tool and the tire levers

Bottom Line:   
Worked well till i need the tools to do their job, the tire levers broke and the chain tool bent then the pin fell out of it. The multi tool bent in the casing so now all the tools dont tuck away properly anymore. but the bag worked really well so did the locking system. i only gave it 2 turds casue the bag it all came in was good

Submitted by David Hukill a Weekend Warrior from Bedford, NH USA

Date Reviewed: November 26, 2001

Strengths:    Compact, neat-looking, good construction, and well designed product. Has the tools needed to get you home. Bottom pocket is perfect for extra tube. Best feature is the styrofoam insert in the top pocket which has slots for all the included tools. I never hear my tools banging around.

Weaknesses:    Tire levers a bit on the flimsy side, but can be replaced. Because the styrofoam is custom-cut for the included tools, should you decide to replace a tool with one of your own choice, it may not fit properly.

Bottom Line:   
This product is a great value. At $35, you get a great-looking, and very functional toolset and bag that will handle most situations you encounter on the trail. Well done Topeak, 5 chilis!

Strengths:    Good variety of essential tools. Very compact, and reasonable weight.

Weaknesses:    Chain tool. The driving pin wobbles in the socket.

Bottom Line:   
This tool set will get you home (or your bike at least) in one piece. You shouldn't need to carry any more tools than whats in this baby.

Submitted by Alec Mackenzie a Cross Country Rider from Bowdoinham, Maine, USA

Date Reviewed: April 7, 2001

Strengths:    It has everything you really need on the trail, pluss the extra pocket, which I use for a tube.

Weaknesses:    When your friends see it they break stuff just so they can watch you use it, and one time some pro downhillers made fun of me because I still carry tools around with me, apparently thats a big haha.

Bottom Line:   
This isn't going to be your entire toolbox, but there is more then enough to get you home and off the trail. There is a foam piece that holds all the pieces and keeps them from bumping around in the bag, on some hard trails the tools pop out and hit eachother. So your not going crazy, that noise you hear is the tools, its no biggy. The chain tool I have found to be a little chintzy, but again it gets the job done.

Strengths:    Comes in a handy case that mounts to seatpost. Has hex wrenches and chain breaker, patches, wrenches, tire levers.Everything you need is here!

Weaknesses:    none so far.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great tool, it is all i ever use to make repairs and adjustments. I have this tool set and a leatherman-style multitool and spare patches and tube..You dont need more than that cuz nearly all the tools you need are right there in the handy case. Top notch product, i would buy another if this one ever got lost. Cant live without it.

Strengths:    It works with good leverage.

Weaknesses:    Tire lever snapped.

Bottom Line:   
Saved my butt more than once without a problem until the tire lever broke. Oh well. I read somebody complaining about leverage problem with biggest allen key. Handle for the chaintool is hollow on one end. Short end of allen key goes in there to provide better leverage. Very satisfied with its use.

Strengths:    
Usable tools w/ lots of leverage
compact size
still works good after 6 years of use


Weaknesses:    
need some pliers and a phillip head screwdriver
stupid name! almost as dumb as cool tool


Bottom Line:   
nice compact emergency trail tool! comes with allens, hexs, chainbreaker, flat tip screw driver, tire levers, patches, and all inside a sleek case. for the reader below: you have to think a little when using this tool! what i mean is that when you use the longest hex wrench, you have to use it in conjuntion w/ the chainbreaker bar to get the leverage. DUH!
Because it is reliable, rugged, and has usable tools (not like some of the other trail tools).....

Date Reviewed: June 1, 1999

Bottom Line:   
Pretty good kit, I like the compact size. My biggest gripe is with the hex wrenches. The largest hex is on the long end of the wrench so you have the least leverage when you need it! Topeak should put the large hex on the short end so I can apply more force where it's needed.

Date Reviewed: May 11, 1999

Strengths:    
High quality construction. Feels like it will last.


Weaknesses:    
Fiddly to get some of the tools out


Bottom Line:   
Beautifully-made and single-minded in purpose. Clips neatly on to the seatpost with a clip, plus a velcro strap for extra security. Can be annoying trying to get some of the tools out, especially with wet fingers, but that's the nature of the beast. A small price to pay for a reassuring emergency backup.
