CrankBrothers Multi Mini 19 tool£26.99

Essential trail tooling

BikeRadar score4/5

The simple design of the Mini 19 makes it easy to use, and the different tools are easily located and accessible.

The Allen keys range from 2mm up to 8mm, which should cover all the essential adjustments that you’ll need to make around your bike.

The Torx T25 key is great for any disc bolt issues and it’s a plus to have both a Phillips and a flat-head screwdriver. The chain tool is easy to use and doubles as a spoke key. The carry case seems a little excessive, however, and looks like a hip flask.

Freelance Writer, UK
Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
