how portable? a small kit for in the car or your pocket? on the bike I generally carry a odd multi wrench I got from Sun Rims years ago and a spoke wrench.

I work out of town alot so in my car I have a few 32mm HS wrenches (Park), fourth hand tool (Hozan), cable cutters (Shimano), crankbolt wrench (Park), a few combination and allen wrenches, a cassette tool that works well on both my Campi and shimano wheels, a few screwdrivers and pliers. OH plus my workstand.

at home I have a more complete set of tools and more special FW, Cassette and BB tools. I try and just carry what I need

OH btw most of my non bike spefic tools are Craftsman.
