    Also check out the Specialized EMT Race tool--at 130 grams, the lightest tool I've found with a chain tool.

    The tool looks so small that I'd be guessing you'd be hard pressed to be able to get much leverage from it when loosening a tight bolt or tightening one.

    Yes, the Specialized EMT race tool looks nice...

    Very light and has the very important chain breaker. I've needed the breaker at least once. I personaly use the 80gm Ritchey CPR 14. The breaker on that works better than the one on my Crank Bros. tool. If I had to get another tool I'd get the EMT. It has ti bolts and mag side plates
