Strength:

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

Weakness:

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.

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

Strength:

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.

Weakness:

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.

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!

Strength:

Compact size. Plenty of tools to get you home.Bottom compartment roomy. Foam mold holds tools.

Weakness:

the tire levers are a little short, but work. I carry an extra Park lever. Have not tried the chain tool

Very good kit, great value. The bottom compartment fits spare tube, Air Chuck and two 16g CO2 with room to spare. Also has a zipper pocket on the bottom, can carry small items, cash, ect in there.

Strength:

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

Weakness:

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

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

CL   Weekend Warrior [Feb 28, 2003]
Strength:

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

Weakness:

heavy (590 gm)

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.

starrman   Weekend Warrior [Jul 22, 2006]
Strength:

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

Weakness:

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.

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.

Chong Oh   Weekend Warrior [Aug 07, 2000]
Strength:

It works with good leverage.

Weakness:

Tire lever snapped.

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.

Tsunami a wanna be   Racer [Dec 14, 1999]
Strength:

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

Weakness:

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

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).....

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.

Chris   Weekend Warrior [May 11, 1999]
Strength:

High quality construction. Feels like it will last.

Weakness:

Fiddly to get some of the tools out

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.
