What can I say? I have been carrying this little tool with me every day for the last year or two, on day rides and for back up on longer ones, along with at least one of the Silca tire levers, and use it quite a bit - and its design, adjustability and color make me smile ... Also, as some have already said, I agree that the magnetized spots for a quick link is a brilliant idea, and it works great (no losing there...)
2 things, though, I think should be improved:
- the first is the Philipps which I think should be replaced with a Japanese JIS head, way more precise for on the fly micro adjustments. I still don't know why nobody does this, and on longer distances I take a dedicaded JIS.
- the second is that the 8 mm hex is bound to be lost (has been with me), which means anyone who buys this tool should also take care to lodge it in a pouch of sorts - and Silca doesn't sell a separate replacement...
Ah, and just maybe, slightly longer hexes (5 mm or so), would be great.
