Strength:

All the right tools, good construction, fairly compact

Weakness:

Lid to case wont' stay on.

This tool always has the tool I need. It also fits nicely in my small CamelBak. I forget that it's even there until I need it. I even use it for stuff at home sometimes since it's usually easier to get to as opposed to searching out the right size hex bit in the tool box.

Strength:

Solid tool, no frills, no plastic.

Weakness:

Case doesn't serve much purpose, and the cover is difficult to get off without a tool.

Very strong, well built and assembled. Has basically every tool you'll need for field repairs. No plastic.

Strength:

Great all around trail unit. Have not been disappointed with this product. Crank Bros. make sturdy, reliable, efficient tools.

Weakness:

None

When you're thirty miles out, the rain is coming down in buckets & a 5' drop has caused a bit of mayhem with your filly, you'll be relieved that you brought along the Multi-19.

Strength:

Lifetime warranty. Stainless steel components (some) and this really cool carry case thingy.

Weakness:

A tad heavy, but so is everything else I carry (including the kitchen sink).

This is my third bike tool. Lost the first one. Second one rusted up really quick. I bought the Crank Bros 19 on a whim. Like the metal carry case. Advantage: keeps the tool from rubbing holes in your saddle bag or Camel Back (like my Park Tool did). Sure, it adds weight but I don't care. The Crank does not include tire tools (like the aforementioned) but not a deal breaker for me. The 19 does have a lot of tools (some not afforded on the Park Tool), not to mention spoke wrenches. Plus neat chain tool. I have oiled this one up to prevent rusting and the carry case fits perfect in my Camel or saddle bag. So far, I like, and a lifetime warranty to boot. Everything I expect in a bike tool, and the nice case is a deal maker.

Strength:

Fairly light, great for having on the bike.

Weakness:

None.

Nice, sturdy toolkit to put in your bike pack. I've had it for a few weeks and already used it several times on my bike and a friend's bike on the road with great success.

Call_me_Al   Cross Country Rider [Aug 09, 2008]
Strength:

Light, slim shape fits easily into a pocket.
Lots of tools.
It is wide enough to get very good leverage.
Very strong... I doubt I will ever manage to break this thing.

Weakness:

The slim, wide shape that makes it easy to carry in a pocket also makes it a bit tough to use in tight spaces.
Mine developed a little rust on some of the individual tools... from my sweat maybe?

A great tool to have with you on the trail. It fits easily into a pocket or camelbak. With it, you can fix just about any mechanical issue. It even has a spoke wrench, although I've never tried that. Overall, this is an excellent tool.

Strength:

Best chain breaker, carrying case, feels like quality,

Weakness:

Most expensive multi tool I could find.

Get this if you are sick of buying the cheapest tools, they always seemn so clumsy and fragile to use.

Biker   Weekend Warrior [Apr 18, 2007]
Strength:

The best spoke wrench you'll find on a pocket multitool. You don't need another spoke wrench. For some reason the chain tool works loads better than my Park multitool.

Weakness:

Not that they could help it in a 19-piece tool, but its a bit bulky to turn in tight spaces compared to others. But like most tools it swivels so it has never bothered me.

I live in the middle of nowhere so the bike shops here are a complete joke. I went to the only three places around that sell bikes and none had a spoke wrench of any kind. Even though they had some 3000 dollar bikes (sad world we live in eh?). I came back not knowing how I would finish my wheel, and grabbed the spoke wrench on my new multitool. Surprise, it worked perfectly. My last multitool had a completely useless spoke wrench. Apparently this is well designed and it comes with a tin as well so it doesn't get ski wax all over it in the winter. Looks like I'll have to get their pedals. Great tool.

Strength:

Everything you need on the trail.

Weakness:

It might be a little pricey compared to others. But I still think it's worth it.

It's very nice to have such a good tool with you while out on a ride for those small adjustment or even helping out a fellow rider. It's compact size and variety of tools is perfect to take along for the ride.
