No disrespect meant, but just make sure you know how to use whatever tools you take. For instance, a spoke wrench is a neat little gadget, but pretty worthless if you don't have some rudimentary knowledge about changing a broken spoke/truing a wheel.
Also, carefully weigh the potential for needing a specialized tool vs likely access to a bike shop for more esoteric failures/adjustments.
Consider taking a temporary Fiber Fix spoke, and an extra tire tool or two in case one breaks.
The bicycle is one of the great inventions of mankind. Delights children, challenges young men to feats of daring, and turns old men into boys again.--Me
