Blackburn Toolmanator 5 Multi-Tool

Strip away the excess. Pare things down to their most basic and beauty will follow. Not as an intention, but as a result.

This Blackburn multi-tool is a representative of that principle. It has a 3, 4, 5, and 6mm hex, flat head screwdriver and 15mm wrench built into the one piece aluminum body. Exactly the right amount of tool for 90% of riders.

On most bikes, the Toolminator will allow you to do the following:

  • Adjust your saddle height and saddle angle.
  • Tighten a water bottle cage that has come loose.
  • Adjust the limits on your derailleur to fix a chain that keeps dropping.
  • Rotate your handlebars or flip your stem for a more comfortable ride.
  • Take the wheel off of your track bike to change a flat.
  • Adjust your caliper or cantilever brakes and brake pads for sure stopping.
  • Adjust disc brake position as well as brake and shift lever position.
  • Loosen dropouts to tighten the chain on a single speed bike.
  • Other things that I haven't thought of.

Simple. Uncomplicated. Lightweight, and sufficient for anything outside of catastrophe. At $15, the Toolminator is a great buy.
