Hey guys, my girlfriend and I just picked up our first "real" bikes, '13 Specialized Crosstrail Sport Disc and '13 Trek Neko-S.
I'm looking for a versatile multi-tool that can be used for these two bikes. Being that they're two different brands, I'm not sure if I would need a multi-tool that has tools in it specific to either one of these bikes.
It seems like most of the bolts require an Allen key or Philips head. Any of you gurus out there know if there are specific bits in either of these bikes that require a special tool?
Also, (excuses my newb-ness) is there any other tool you would recommend having available in a multi-tool for roadside emergencies/general tinkering?
I'm not familiar with what can go wrong on a bike ride other than a flat tire, but what else can go wrong on the side of the road and what tool would I need to fix it (ie can the chain come off, rim can bend, etc.)?
Thanks for your patience, I really appreciate your help. I'm looking forward to learning a lot on this forum but for the time being I'd like to put together a tool kit so I can strap it on the bike asap.
