Our review

Neatly packaged, tough, and the spoke key is easy to use.

Unlike the chain tools on most other multi-tools, the one on the Topeak Mini completely detaches from the tool body, and a stainless steel extension folds out to make the handle longer for better grip.

However, it was thwarted by the 10-speed chain test. The list of features continues with a tin opener, easy-to-use spoke key, Phillips and flat blade screwdrivers and a single steel tyre lever that, although strong, can inflict damage on tyre beadings and inner tubes if you use it carelessly.

Curiously, there are two 2mm and 4mm Allen keys, plus a 2.5, 3, 5, 6, 8 and 10mm size for tightening the key-release units on Truvativ cranks.

The padded Lycra pouch helps to protect the grey anodised end plates from getting scuffed when it’s in a saddle pack with other items – and helps protect those items from the tool.
