The Repair Rebel looks like a thoughtfully designed bike multi-tool, although it is probably more versatile as an emergency repair tool. Its slim profile allows for easy carrying inside a pack or under the saddle.
If you’re not too keen on the idea of carrying a large (but light) tool with driver tips you don’t need, something like the PB Swiss/Victorinox Bike Tool might be more up your alley.
The tool’s $25 price seems right – perhaps even a little low even.
