This tool is really great for a quick fix on the road or the trail. It has all the necessary tools for most riders, and nothing you don't need. The tools swivel in a way that they can fit into hard to get bolts on a bike (front derailleur clamp, stem clamps, etc.). The bolts that hold the rails to the sides of the multi-tool are prone to coming loose, and can cause the multi-tool to apart after a while. Just tighten these up with an allen key and it avoids the problem.
Summed up: Perfect multi-tool - small, sleek, with everything you need.
Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

I really like this multi tool. It has all the tools I need to do 99% of all quick bike repairs and some tools to do more in depth repairs (spoke wrenches, chain tool, etc.) I've had this tool for almost 4 years and it still works great.
My one complaint about this tool (and the reason this gets 3 stars instead of 4) is that the bolts that hold it together tend to loosen up over time and the tool can fall apart if you're not careful. I took it apart after a while and put some loctite on the threads and that seemed to help, but still. . .
