High quality, compact roadside fixer
BioLogic FixKit multi tool
8 10

The BioLogic FixKit multi-tool is a well-designed emergency set that includes two less-common tools: a 15mm spanner and a chain tool.

The FixKit has a total of 20 tools and the decent-sized handle means it offers plenty of leverage when you need it. The 15mm spanner will be especially welcome to fixed-gear riders and anyone who uses hub gears or has bolt-on hubs to stop their wheels getting nicked. It locks in place when needed.

It comes with a neoprene cover to stop it scratching other items in your pocket, and to protect your hands from its edges when you're reefing on a reluctant bolt.

In use the FixKit is easy to handle. Its slightly greater reach and leverage compared to some multi-tools makes for easy roadside adjustments. The chain tool is good enough for field repairs, though you'll want something beefier in the workshop.

It's made from aluminium and chrome-vanadium steel, packs down to a comfortably pocketable 14 x 40 x 77mm and weighs 157g. That's a shade on the high side, but acceptable when you consider you're getting a chain tool and 15mm spanner, which you won't find in lighter multi-tools.

that's an exact copy of the tern, which I have, but
costs less !!
I've found the 5mm, which is also the the lever,
can be very painful if used on a "stubborn" bolt
like a right seatpost clamp. other than that the
tern and therefore this one is nice  1

the 5mm is a bit of a worry for me, its probably the most common used but in the worst position

love the 15mm though

As for the 5mm, thanks for the feedback.... the Tern and Biologic product team hear what you say! We recognise that with a really tight Allen bolt it might hurt a bit. You could use the neoprene case as padding...then it might be a bit more comfortable.

But as with many multi-tools, designed for portability and convenience as well as function, there are sometimes particular spots on a bike or specifics of the tool which are less optimal to get to /use as with your tools in a proper workshop. We will take this into consideration for the next generation tool our product designers are working on.

The sense of order is lovely with multitools but they're always heavier, dearer, and much less useable than a little bank change bag containing just the allen keys, chain tool etc that I require (no need for the torq or the 15mm spanner). I wish they weren't cos I love the neatness!

I bought the Tern branded version about a year ago. It's a well made compact quality tool that puts the likes of Park to shame. With the puncture patches included in its neoprene pouch, its nearly perfect. The achillies heel is, as others have picked up, the 5mm hex, which is too short and no good for inaccessible bolts. Roadies who shun saddle bags will love it though.
