    Funny you posted this.

    Since I am getting ready to buy a bike, I have been looking at what accessories I will need in addition to a bike and helmet.

    The two first things I want to get are a mini pump and a multitool. I was just looking at the Hexus II and the Alien II this morning. I think the Hexus II will be enough for me. I have any other tools at my house, but this should get me out of most jams.

    I'll be monitoring this thread to see what some of the more experienced users chime in with.

    Can't rememebr if mine if the 17 or 19, but it's worked well now since '08. Yes it would not push the pin all the way out, but a few minutes with a file and that was easily fixed. The amount of times I've used the damn thing to fix chanins on the trail I just can't even start to recall, great tool.

    Good I guess I will order two different ones, that way I keep one and the other for my wife bike.

    Lynx would that be and issue for a rookie like me? The chain pin on the multitool.
    Just got my 1st bike so I got 0 experience fixing bike stuff.

    Best site on the net for what you want Park Tool Co. ParkTool Blog

    As to the chain pin thing, all you have to do is file the thick threaded part down to make the pin longer so it will push the chain pin all the way out.
