What's in your tool roll?

Confession: so I've arrived in this forum via the world of, shall we say, more modern bike technology in which a single multi-tool with hex keys and maybe a torx or two were the norm for most roadside repairs, more recently supplemented with things like tubeless plugs. I now find myself bundling a bunch of rather large wrenches from my shop, odd sized SAE or Whitworth hexes AND my old multitool into a saddle roll or handlebar bag to ride my C&V steed and wondering is there some sort of super-secret C&V multi-tool I'm missing out on? Is everyone riding to the jingle jangle of loose wrenches? How do others weight whether or not to bring whatever modified socket I've used to tighten older style crank bolts?

I'm sure much of this is down to personal preference, risk tolerace and whether there is someone who will come pick you up when you're 30 miles away with a mechanical, but in short, what do others bring on a normal 1-day ride? What's in your tool roll? Pictures most welcome!

Nobody "wants" it, but for a while now, I've been trying to "rid" a Ritchey cpr-14, a 78 gram chromo multi-tool with 5 allen keys, 4 box wrenches, 2 spoke wrenches, a chain tool, screwdriver, and bottle opener.

Personally, I just carry two tire levers and a patch kit.

Too much, I always go overboard, recently upped the capacity quite a bit, yet had to jettison a slimline Stanley 6 in. Crescent, not replaced by but backed up by a 4 in. with a sleeve for handle extension and clearenced jaws so it can get on 15 mm pedal flats if needed. Leatherman for pliers and a good knife, Topeak Ailien II multi tool with chain breaker, mini pump that is also C02 capable, zip ties, duct tape, patch kit, tube and a frame pump too.

I rarely need any of this but on the rare occasion that I leave any of it out, I will need some of it and be lucky if its not the thing I left behind.

The old adage always applies, if you have it, you won't need it, if you don't have it, well....

I always haul it all anyway, so I won't need it.

First of all, I am disappointed in the quality of porn displayed so far in a thread called "What's in your tool roll"

But for me - Spare tubular, pretty small multi-tool, small crescent, 3-ounce Stan's, CO2 gun and 2 cartridges.

I just tore this bike down as I am bringing it back to Pennsylvania this week. The roll is an Acorn one and carries enough to fix or replace just about everything on this bike. Since it is packed already, I cannot take a recent picture to show any changes I have made. Also, the bike is now a flat bar bike and the rando bars have moved on to another bike.



Here it is as a flat bar bike.

I have yet to figure out C&V take-a-long tools. An MT-1 and fingers crossed usually does it. If I've been playing with brakes I'll take along an 8 and 9mm.


For Eroica like rides.
Plus tire stuff.

Who makes the the nicest little adjustable wrench these days? Some I've picked up are kinda loose.

I have higher priorities for $100 but this is on eBay now

Tool porn. I carry this on every ride from commuting to mountain biking to bikepacking to multi week tours. With the exception of the chain tool and Fiber Fix, every item in the picture has been used to repair something on the road.

If I'm riding one of the old English bikes, then:

Tube, patch kit, tire lever, adj. wrench, plastic bag

Otherwise:

Tube, patch kit, tire levers, multi-tool

I also bring a frame pump.

I like these threads as I am constantly seeking to improve my carry. This is what I carry in my water bottle for local rides of 10 to 15 miles. That is walking distance if necessary. I ride old paved back roads of torn up asphalt. I stay local so I don't need allot of water and my bikes have fittings for two water bottles. This set would be much different if I was touring or going deep. There is just enough room in the bottle for my tools and a small road rash zip lock.






Note: It took allot for me to belay my Park MT-1 and Park CT-5, but all the gizmos on my multi tool work so I gave them up for the Distributor Pliers.

Current routine ride kit to cover multiple bikes:

Left Column: Mini leatherman-type pliers tool, Park spoke wrench, some duct tape wrapped around an old plastic card, zip ties, VAR tire levers

Middle Column: Black earbud case in which goes: Rema patches (in small Altoid tin) & glue, 7/9 speed quick links, valve adapter. (the soda can flip tab perfectly fits the nuts on Suntour barcons)

Right Column: Banjo Bros medium bag, gold earbud case in which goes small screwdriver small adj wrench, 3/4/5/6 hex keys

Tire size gets swapped depending on bike used. Frame pump on the bike.

Cool Tool
The jaws on the Cool Tool are nice because they taper quickly and can be used as a cone wrench.

Regarding the one posted for sale, it's a plus that is has the headset and BB adapters. I've never used them so I don't know for sure but I think using it on a BB would be a stretch, though it probably would work OK with a headset. On the negative side, that one is missing the 14mm socket which has flats so it can be turned by the CT. Also, the two allen wrenches are not original, they are the same size at both ends while one end (on the long side) should have a smaller end and one should be a Phillips - compare them to the ones in my pic.

I've been happy with the larger Lobtex adjustable I bought for my shop. I see they have a shorty version here (https://www.amazon.com/Adjustable-Sh...s%2C671&sr=8-6), but I can't attest to it.

At $100, this isn't for me, but this truly is the "super-secret C&V multi-tool" I was asking about!

The Cool Tool is pretty remarkable for bikes of its era. How many other tools include 14mm and 15mm sockets to tighten a crank bolt?
One nice feature is that the allen wrenches can be positioned to get extra leverage for wrenching on pedals or the crank bolts.
This isn't a light tool, but it's probably competitive when compared to the tools that would be needed to perform the same functions.

A few photos of my Cool Tool...





note: the threaded portion should be tightened down before applying significant torque.

That’s a bargain for that particular Cool Tool. It’s not a Gerber one but a Bob Seals original. If I didn’t already have one of the Bob Seals originals, I’d buy it. The add-ons make it even better. It is missing the socket, however.

Perhaps the only version that is more collectible is the titanium version.

Not just for its era but for just about any era. Its an easier to use tool than almost any multi tool invented thus far. It fits in the human hand which isnt something that can be said about just about any other multi tool. The Fix-It-Sticks that I posted above is pretty close and works well for modern bikes that dont have a whole lot of bolts (the adjustable wrench is mostly unneeded on most bikes).

That Cinelli B is a gem and that Frejus too! Be careful riding it, my 1937~ish Automoto Osgear had similar damage to the saddle, that tear near the nose, and it ripped in half while i was at a ride. The rest of the way home was unpleasant.

The saddle on the Frejus is just for show (original to the bike). I have a different one for go (Rudi made me a Frejus repop).

For me, it depends on the length of the ride, but at minimum (20-50-mile rides), I bring spare tube, tire levers, pump, multitool. My multitool actually fits in the pump, and I attach it to the bike with a bracket attached to the downtube water bottle bolts. It’s this one from Oneup Components: https://www.oneupcomponents.com/collections/edc/edc

Like most of you I try not to need a tool on the road so I keep it real simple. A few allens, brake tool and some wipes. This will handle most any fittings on my bikes. Since I ride both tubulars and clinchers I keep the tiniest seat pack I can find with a tube and levers on each clincher, and the customary tubular under the saddle.

It all goes in this little pouch
