It's funny: Many drivers feel a breakdown, almost as an imposition, which is fix by the mobile Service personnel. Not even a wheel has to be tried, not to mention more complex repairs throughout. Self-help in the Depths of the mechatronics is also, in many cases without the workshop equipment is hardly possible and therefore not provided. Instead, you buy a car with a mobility guarantee. A phone call is enough – if it all goes well.
Quite different is the bike ride at the weekend or even the days of a bike tour through the Altmühltal valley or the Vosges mountains: The pure adventure, and a jammed chain, flat tires or a broken Spoke is part of it. Nothing that can not be repaired in the rain bravely next to the bike path. You want to to tell you finally have to return something.

Including the tools sitting on two bolts, flat slotted, Phillips, Allen and Torx screwdrivers in the common sizes. The wars, and is smaller, thinner and lighter still, the design principle of most of the Bicycle tools for on-the-go. Similar from Brooks, the MT 10 (about 50 Euro), developed as the even wider – with 21 fuller, heavier, and with just 70 euros more expensive variant of the MT witnesses 21 the nostalgic charm of a leather cover. Both, however, are with the stable and sufficiently large tools on the current state.
