Video: New 8-Speed Drivetrain, Tools, Tires, Pedals, & Clothing - Across the Pond Beaver
@hamncheez: fair enough. $45 for everything you need, plus the underseat tool wrap to hold them, is mighty appealing. I have my reasons for liking the stashability of the Lezyne system (mainly bikepacking, but also I'm forgetful), but it is a compromise to have to carry the masterlink pliers if I want a chainbreaker tool.

@hamncheez: I like where your head's at. The OneUp EDC system is cool, but sacrifices multitool functionality to benefit the form factor. For instance, the 8mm wrench is made by combining the flathead screwdriver to the 6mm wrench. Cool, but with high-torque applications (like crank sets) this will introduce play and could damage the bolt head or tool (if you can even get the torque needed). I've also heard the included masterlink breaker is nearly impossible to use in a pinch without watching a youtube video of how to do it. The Blackburn tool looks pretty comprehensive. The same idea as Fixit Sticks but with a nice looking case. The question is, do you want the function of a tool or the convenience of stashing it on the bike? I've been looking for both for a while now and think I may have settled on Lezyne's "Dual Insert" tools (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B087W7L2W9/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_DIMwFbH1S1946), plus a separate chain breaker for longer rides when I can't bail out on foot (Lezyne also has new masterlink pliers with all the right fixings). ...I swear I don't for for Lezyne, but this tool kit seems to fit my bill and think it might suit you too.

New Tools, Pumps & Tire Repair Kits From Lezyne - Across the Pond Beaver
Finally a masterlink breaker with more than one use. Don't care about the bottle opener, but the rotor slot, chain breaker, and masterlink storage make it worth keeping in the bag in conjunction with compact hex/torx tool. Ok, now find a way to combine the pump, masterlinkbreaker, multitool, and tire plug kit...and make it all fit in one of the cavities of my frame I didn't even know existed...all for less than 300g and $80.

Video: Geoff Gulevich's Fastest Run Down the North Shore's Iconic 'Ladies Only'
Kudos to any e-bike rider with skills, but I still don't want to hear about any "speed" or "fastest" or other time-related claims when a motor is involved. Especially when the rider cuts trail at 4:24 to achieve their "fastest time". Seriously though, never ridden in BC and I'm sure I would poop my pants approaching some of these features for the first time. Geoff is clearly a skilled rider and I enjoyed the video.
