actually found a good tool on Facebook.

it is a bit expensive but so far I have loved it. a ratcheting t wrench bit holder. its really fast to do the bulk of the turning and its easy to change direction. the only bad part is I thin kit was 45.00 or 50.00 but it has a lot more leverage then a multi tool but not as bulky as a whole set of wrenches. I just ordered some bit holders. the Incan afford it I think I will just buy the bits and keep these on my bike.

I could make a video of it I was trying to find one. they have different ones but I like the rates version. its really fast with removing and putting bolts in. it is a bit uncomfortable if you need to put a lot of torque on a bolt so you would use the t end. but its nice it can hold 3 bits so you can change around the bit position really fast. plus its a great fidget toy (G) https://store.fixitsticks.com/collec...56Ufls4R9L-Ws0

I got addicted to bit ratchets. I have the Wera, Wiha, Felo, and Sunex. The Sunex is by far the cheapest, and as far as I can tell, nearly as good quality as the others. Search Sunex bit ratchet on Amazon and you will find a set for just over $20 that will have every bit you will ever need except the ones you actually need for a bicycle - metric hex bits.

The Wera is my favorite, but also the most expensive.
