I have one of these. They're p good. True RFD secret though: once I ditched the retro 70s bike (well, it was stolen) and bought a new one, my bike maintenance dropped to almost nothing, even with a daily commute. Esp with Kevlar tires.

Anyway this is good to have in a pinch, if you know what you are doing

Top 2 reviews are concerning. I'd avoid.

Tell me more about Kevlar tires? No flats? How much are they and which do you recommend?

Looked up the reviews, looks like very low quality so I'll pass. Don't want a useless junk when you actually need it.

I have the multitool part. It's.. OK. The sockets don't stay on the stick thingy very well. Almost had a heart attack changing my car battery and the socket fell into the engine bay. But I've used the tool here and there because I don't want to buy a real set of tools. It's gets the job done with some finesse.

This looks identical to the one included with a bike I purchased, and I would not recommend. Even with the minimal assembly that was required for that bike, I wound up resorting to my full size allen key set because the keys came loose in no time. I believe a couple of them are also not gripping as well now as they have become rounded.

Yes, it might be more expensive, but I would say it's likely going to be better to put together your own toolkit from higher quality pieces (may or may not be as important depending on how much/where you ride).

Ive ran them for a few years. No flats. Regularly ride over broken glass and nails without hesitation. Careful they will still embed, easily cut you carrying up stairs or scratch your apartment floor. Should not make it to the inner tube unless it's on the sidewall.schwinn made the ones i've bought. Either its effective or since install in 2018 i've been exceptionally lucky.

So the kevlar is on the tread part? And doesn't wrap to the side i assume (which is why you said "unless on sidewall")?

Generally speaking, the side wall material is thinner than the tread. I don't have an answer to your question though

I'm in the market for one of these, but I'm gonna pass. This seems like a poor-quality product.

I have two of these. I would pass. The plastic casing is weak and you will eventually shatter it when your are using the hex heads to do various things. Its also annoying to use, individual tools are better. Also, the portability isnt really needed. What bike repairs are you going to do on the road? Probably just swapping out a flat. Just bring a pump and some tire levers then.

there are hundreds of small factories in YiWu china making similar things like this, lowest price will be $4 at Dollarama where I buy if found, or you can pay double from Amazon
