    Topeak Alien multi-tool
    I am starting to get back in to biking and want to pick up a decent multi-tool and I like the looks of the Alien. I noticed that there is an Alien II and an Alien III but there doesn't seem to be a huge difference between the two.

    The one thing I noticed is that the Alien III says the tire level is for emergency use only (and there is only one), whereas the Alien II has two tire levers with no asterisk. So that would seem like a drawback to the Alien III.

    Why is the Alien III more money (other than it being newer)? Is it just because it is slightly lighter/newer? Should I just go with the Alien II? Should I go with something else altogether?
