Lezyne Stainless 12 Multi-tool

I've seen some tools in my time, I've even had to work with a few of them and still do today and I'll tell you now, some of them are as useful as a chocolate fireguard.

Not Micki Kozuscheck of Lezyne though.Like your Grandma we all know the guys at SRAM are wise cookies and as she always told you, "A bad workman always blames his tools".

SRAM purchased Truvativ four years ago from Micki Kozuscheck. No doubt he earned a few dollars and whilst you and me would of been off to Vegas and the Crazy Horse II (Yes I know it's closed down now). Old Micki joined up with his old mucka from Truvativ, a Mr. Dillon Clapp and they started to make some beautiful products that are now hitting our European shores.

Lezyne Stainless 12 Multitool retails for £19.99

Sexy? You gotta love that neoprene style wrap around mini skirt, didn't Kylie Minogue wear something like that? Keep that in place whilst in your shorts pocket in case of any crashes. This will stop a 4mm Allen key from skewering you silly.

Now take a look at the way each tool is attached: Most manufacturers use the "Wrap Around" style of securing their tools to the end axle. Lezyne cold forge and then CNC from Stainless Steel each tool and manufacture a hole at the end. The end axle slides through said hole, this makes them lighter and stronger than your conventional multi-tool.

 Awesome tool, I have one and love it! I used to carry a topeak alien tool, too much weight, and never used all the tools. Try out the lezyne alloy drive mini-pump. Made from machined aluminum with a hose to attatch to valves, hose stores inside pump when not in use. Quality stuff!

 i just bought a crank bros multi tool, it has 17 uses which includes all 12 lyzines- The crank bros has 18 if you count the grip on the sides as a file tool, which i have used to shave off jagged bits from a bent rim already. it cost $35 CDN and in my opinion was worth every penny.

 I like that they made the 2mm a L shaped allen, this is key for the lever reach adjust. My crank bros tool wont fit in between the bar and lever and hane carry a separate allen. I have their all pack which is pretty sweet tons of room for pads and armor, full face helmet carry. But it uses those shitty waterproof zippers that always break is my only complaint.

 yah those wouldnt give u any leverage at all

 if you didnt notice, each piece is a single machined piece of metal formed around the "axle" of the tool creating an even stronger and sturdier tool. its a banging specimen of a tool

The first line sounds bad, "I've seen some tools in my time"

 No way dude, your so smart. OK, Ill try be more specific this time. What bike part requires a 5.5mm hex?
