I expected better from Victorinox because pretty much everything else they make that i’ve ever laid my hands on has been top notch and well thought out. This thing looks like junk.

Swiss Army Knives never had crappy plastic tweezers. The toothpicks were plastic, the tweezers were metal.

This and the BMC tool are simply rebranded PB Swiss Tools’ bike tool. PB’s tools are quite nicely made in Switzerland, but they are otherwise entirely uninvolved in the bike business, hence this low effort attempt. Must say that I’m surprised that Victorinox would simply sell rebrands though.

no chain tool is a deal breaker for me. not to mention ridiculous price.

I currently use Topeak with a ratchet and separate bits – I like it. I can customize bits for some of my bikes that use uncommon fasteners (some T10 and T30 etc). And it is light, and after one bit is broken (like so many hex keys getting rounded from being made of cheese), easy to replace.

My old multi-tools will probably be given away when my Fixit Sticks arrive in a few days. I haven’t needed tire levers since an old dude taught me how to change a tire without them over a decade ago.

Ok dudes. On kickstarter, there are two new hotshot companies with new mini tools.

Fixit sticks vs. The Nutter

You guys should do a search on google for those two mini tools. They both look good. I’m going with the Nutter. I like the one piece thing and easy to replace bits.

In fact, this tool is PB Swiss Tool bike tool, rebranded as Victorinox. It has lifetime warranty for _each_ of it part. The plastic tire levers, like the rest of the tool, are very robust – I mountet Geax Barro Race/Mountain tires with them on Mavic 819/Shimano XT reams withous any problem – it’s more likely to dent the lim then to brake the lever.
I’ve have been using this tool (original BR Swiss Tool) for almost 2 years – it proves to be a universal and robust solution. It’s lighter, that the majority on the market, and fit the pochet of XC/road jersey better. I’m also able to reuse the bits from it during bike assembling.

So, I would say, it does not worth to criticise the tool before you actually try it 🙂
