    Picked up this 18 Tools-In-One at my local military exchange (department store). It’s a bit different from the picture, but the description is the same. Here is the tool breakdown:
    Allen Keys: 2mm, 2.5mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm
    Box Wrenches: 9mm, 10mm, 12mm, 13mm, 15mm
    Phillips & Flathead (common) screwdrivers
    Spoke Wrenches: 12G, 13G, 14G [these are “notched” into the box wrenches]
    8mm socket wrench
    Tire lever on body [the black plastic tool “bodies” have been modified to terminate in a thin, slightly pointed & rounded-over shape; in a pinch, they could be tire levers]

    Unmated, the tool kit can be stored in a space 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 x 3 1/4 inches; it weighs 8 oz without the pouch [which is nylon]. Mated together, the basic tool kit is 3 3/4 x 1 3/4 x 1 1/2 inches [all tools folded in]. The pouch can accommodate the tool kit mated together or otherwise.

    The quality of the Allen keys is about average; they are comfortable enough to be used for routine maintenance, but it would be difficult to exert a lot of torque. The screwdrivers are below average in quality & finish; but okay for in-the-field adjustments. The box wrenches & spoke wrench cutouts are thin, with stamped-out working ends [not machined]…it appears that some reviewers used them for routine maintenance, but most of us would find them just barely suitable for emergency repairs [the box wrenches do “lock” into place, but the locking mechanism is very lightweight and flimsy]. Finally, as for using the tool bodies as tire levers…they really are ill-suited for this, so [again] emergency use only.

    All in all, a good value at the Amazon price, and certainly okay–very compact–for the seat bag, but NOT for the workshop [or routine maintenance in general]. Even in an emergency, I’d use care with the box/spoke wrenches.

    This review is from: Schwinn 18-Function Bicycle Tool Kit (Sports)
    I bought this tool after the Schwinn 9 in 1 tool I had owned for two years got stolen. The 9-in-1 tool held up extremely well over the years, and none of the tools ever stripped or wore down, despite frequent use. The 18-function tool has so far proven to be just as reliable, and made of high quality materials. However, I’ve come to realize that I will most likely never use the box wrenches, simply because there are no spots on my bike which will use them. If you’re like me and can’t make use of the box wrenches, I recommend buying the 9-in-1 tool instead because it is slightly more compact, less expensive, and the box wrenches are the only real difference between the tools.

    I’ve given this tool 4/5 stars because the spoke wrenches are poorly cut, and do not grip my spokes well. The reasoning of why the spoke wrenches are included on this thing eludes me anyway – adjusting spokes while on the road is risky business and should really only be done at a truing station at which the push and pull of the spokes can be measured.
