    I have a couple. They're small but lightweight. The ones I got were painted black, not the frosted chrome you might've seen in photos. I haven't had to use mine much, but I can report that the flat-tip screwdriver isn't much use in tightening a loose Speedplay road cleat (which are Phillips-head screws).

    If you're a gram-counter, this is a good companion to your chain tool. If you're not, then also consider Park Tool's MT-1, still under 50 grams if I recall correctly, and bigger and quite tough. The MT-1 is also much flatter... I wouldn't like to put the CPR-9 in my jersey pocket and then fall and land on my back, it's rather pointy.
