    Tern Tool

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...v=WdyHWzw98TM#!

    Anybody tried it?

    It will replace all the tools I carry for my Brompton though I will keep using the Rema patches.

    It looks like a slick tool and has the one feature I could use that my old Park IB-3 doesn't have, a 15mm wrench. I have to to see a multi-tool that incorporates everything I need (like a pair of good pliers) which is why I usually carry the Park tool and my ~15 yo blunt nose slide out Gerber.
    I plan on living forever... so far so good.

    for my tern I just used a tiny bike toolbox of useful tools like 15 years old and still very useful!

    but since you have the brompton did you ever consider this one? cause it fits inside the tube which I thought was pretty well thoughtout.

    Looks interesting but aparently there is a problem with the tyre leavers at the moment. It is said they are too weak and can break and harm the tyre (sharp edges) so if you bought one already you should contact the shop you bought it from to get new tyre leavers.

    Some say that since they ride several bikes they want a tool kit to use on several bikes.

    I like it a lot but I think my B has got a short frame so it may not be for me.

    Read: Brommy priced theirs ^ Up there^.. looks like Tern packs in your pocket,
    rather than fitting in the frame tube.

    hope the guy picked up the carton he discarded, onto the sidewalk.

    Small wonder, its a tight fit. I use 3 steel Eldi tire levers to pull the tires off My Brompton rims.

    I have a Tern Tool, I think I was one of the first few to purchase it. I think it's good in terms of having something small, light and a variety of uses at your disposal. I guess my only complaint is, that straight from the package and put to use, the small rod with a hex head on it that has all the tools connected to it, i think it needs to be tightened up a little, when using some of the hex keys and turning to tighten or loose, it feels kinda wobbly.

    I think a small kit of tools every rider should have, for Tern owners this is a pretty nice compact accessory.

    Since we're on the topic, What is this thing made of metal wise? It seems strong, but I always feel like I am going to break it. I felt like the price was kind of on the steep side, after seeing other multi-tools cheaper. Also, any warranty?

    But overall, I am happy with my purchase, I feel more prepared on the road.
