Pro Mini Tool 11
A mechanic is only as good as his or her ability to quickly and carefully turn around a quick fix. A versatile multi-tool pulls double duty in a jersey or a shop apron pocket. The Pro Mini Tool is one I grab more often than not on my way out the door for a ride, or when packing up for a weekend of racing.
The Mini Tool 11 sports — you guessed it — 11 different bits, yet it’s compacted down to only 10 pivoting bits. The 5mm is also the socket for the 8mm head, so this little $30 multi-tool can even remove pedals. It’s light, slim, and relatively uncommon, so hopefully it won’t walk off in your friends’ pockets.
