Digging around today, I found my old CoolTool which I bought in 1990...

Sadly the AllenKeys have long since been added to other toolkits, but it did have the bonus of the additional 1-1/4" headset spanner....

Not bad nick considering it's been sat doing nothing for 16+ yrs :shock:

Always got mine in my camelback, now I think about it I'm not sure why... the crank tool and chain splitter are both obsolete so its really just a large, heavy object for holding two allen keys together.

Old habits I guess :?

The chain splitter on mine still works a treat... :P :P

The adjustable spanner is the epitome of pony, tho... :lol:

Chain tool is only obsolete for taking the chain off to clean it, a chain tool is still necessary for trailside repairs...unless you're one of them belt driven dudes! :lol:

And what do you mean the crank tool is obsolete? Isn't this a retro board? What is this word "obsolete" you speak of? :P :D

I imported a few titanium cool tools for some friends a few years back. I know at least 1 of them still uses his.
