Hi, I mostly run IG hubs and so far that's involved 1/8" chains. I've been using a cheapo chain tool which recently expired (violently).
Could you recommend a chain tool that's good value for money and will last?
I notice Park Tool have the CT-7 which is specific to 1/8 chains. . . is there a tool which will handle both 1/8 and 3/32. . . I don't suppose there would be?

I use one of these (http://www.allterraincycles.co.uk/product/107134.html).
Handles my fixie chains as well as the Ultegra and XT ones. :)

I think you will need 1 tool for 1/8" chains and a different one for derailleur chains. But, rhenning is right about the Park CT-5 for multi-speed chains. That is an affordable little tool that works very well and is small enough to take with you in a small seat wedge if you want to carry it.
