Strength:

has a chain tool and tire levers, doesn't weigh too much.

Weakness:

oh where to begin? the hex wrenches are no good, and even if you can find a bolt that they fit in, the levers are so short they rarely are of any use. the open end wrenches are thin and weak, i don't even bother trying to use them. only the chain tool has been of any use.

find a good multi-tool and avoid this one. i liked the ritchey tool until mine broke after 5 years of use, and it is a much better, slim-line, small tool. luckily the serfas tool i bought was included with a bunch of items purchased used online, so i am not out any significant amount of cash.

Don't waste your money on this tool. Many of the hex wrenches simply won't fit where they need to, and if they do most are not properly sized and you risk stripping your screw heads. The chain tool was used about three times and now the threads show signs of fatigue, probably will fail in the next few uses. The open end wrench is the worst part, mine has begun cracking and I haven't even used it hard, now it is totally useless as the nuts just slip though. The spoke wrenches were also poorly fit, and require much patience since you can only turn the nipple 1/6 turn at once (if you are lucky). The only good part of this tool are the tire levers, but certainly not worth carrying this tool around for. Doesn't even deserve one chili, but that is the lowest rating.
