Tacx Tool Tube£29.99

Handy and robust tool kit

BikeRadar score3.5/5

This water bottle-style container holds a multi-tool and a CO2 tyre inflator, both of which are good quality items.

There’s enough room left over in the bottle for stashing a windproof (which also stops the contents rattling around while you’re on the move), energy gels and the like.

It’s just a shame that the case can’t actually be used as a water bottle when you’ve removed all the tools.

Simon has been cycling for as long as he can remember, and more seriously since his time at university in the Dark Ages (the 1980s). This has taken in time trialling, duathlon and triathlon and he has toured extensively in Asia and Australasia, including riding solo 2900km from Cairns to Melbourne. He now mainly rides as a long-distance commuter and leisure/fitness rider. He has been testing bikes and working for Cycling Plus in various capacities for nearly 20 years.
