    unless some one chimes in and says they suck, I'm going to give it a try...

    yep. that might be a winner. a bit less cluttered than my alien 2 and i wont have to break the blade off for the TSA guys when i forget to pack it under the plane.

    more thoughts: i was down in my shop and started to think thats alot of small pieces to loose out on the trail. as cool as the idea is, i think ill stick with my overly complicated, too heavy, 2 piece tool with the missing blade.

    It will be great for breaking a chain, but lousy for driving screwdriver bits tight, which explains why screwdrivers still come as . . . screwdrivers. Should be t*ts for allens tho.

    But looks like it only comes with 1 phillips bit.

    Personally, I carry a chain tool and a separate driver set. All you need, really, except for a small pair of pliers, duct tape, and a towel*. A ratchet on a ride is a tool in search of a solution. As are most bike multi-tools.
