    I’ve Bought 5 of These, and They’re All Still Running Strong, June 21, 2011

    This tool is a must-have biking companion. With it you’ll be able to adjust your seat, handlebars, and gears, at least. It’s small, has just what you need, and fits snugly in its own carrying case. It takes up less room than most tire levers in your bag/pocket. It’s robust and can take a drop (or 20) onto the asphalt.

    A friend recommended I pick up this awesome little tool when I bought my first bike. It lived in my bike bag and was the first bike tool I ever owned (I now am a bike mechanic, so I have lots of tools). When my roommate bought her first bike, I loaned mine to her so she could adjust her seat. She wouldn’t give it back. So I bought another one and it too was “gifted” to another riding companion. When I went to the store to buy my third one, another friend came with me and bought one for himself (I refused to give him mine, though he did try). I recently bought my mother a bike and guess what was the first thing in her saddlebag? You guessed it, the Topeak Mini 9. This last one I purchased for myself, to go in the saddle bag of my 2nd bike, mainly because I got tired of forgetting to switch the bag over.

    I bought this to replace a slightly larger, though less functional Parks multitool that was starting to fall apart. Compared to the Parks tool, this is smaller, lighter, more functional (it has a screwdriver), and easier to use. I always had a really hard time opening the Parks tool and I normally had to use a coin to lever the first tool out. I don’t have that problem with the Topeak – its design makes it easier to get open.

    I like the selection of tools too – although I’m pretty sure I have no use for that star shapped tool – what the heck is that for? I would have prefered a flat-blade screwdriver instead of the star tool. If anyone knows where I’m likely to find a use for the star tool on a road bike please let me know.

    It comes in a small case which is awesome (even has a belt loop). Whenever I pulled the Parks tool out of my saddlebag it would grab everything it could on the way out and I would end up spilling the contents of the saddlebag all over the road. The Topeak case solves that problem nicely.

    This is a very basic tool. You will still need a chain tool and a spoke wrench at a minimum unless you really like long walks home.

    Interestingly I’m starting to see the Topeak symbol all over my bike lately. I think I’m starting to like that company. They made my toolset, pump, and saddlebag. LOL – hadn’t noticed before.

    The tool’s solidly built, and it performs all its functions well. It has enough tools to loosen almost any bike bolt or screw, without being needlessly encumbered. I’m pleased with my purchase.
