Multi-Tool

By

Definition: A mountain bike multi-tool is a tool usually set up like a pocket knife with most of the tools you would need for doing repairs out on the trail.

I always recommend getting a very simple multi-tool. One with basic hex (allen) wrenches and screw drivers. I also always recommend getting one with a chain tool built into it, or at least, carry a separate chain tool with you.
