Just popped into my mates shop the other day,and what do i see in his swiss army knife cabinet,but this wee signature keyring model with a pic of a biker on it [as you can see :roll: ]
He said it was in the back of his storeroom and hunted it out knowing im obsessed with bikey things
He cant remember when it came out though
Looking at the pink printing i would have thought ,early to mid nineties
Anyone know for sure?

They make one now that has a full fledged chain tool! Keep meaning to get one.

I actually carry the same model knife (although the standard red color) in the under saddle pack on my MTB-it has come in handy half a dozen times on rides.

He's got that one too
But it costs about £40,which seems a bit steep and theres only really the splitter and a couple of other useful wrenches,mostly it seems to have spanners and sockets,none of which suit the modern bikes with allen bolts
I'd rather buy a couple of park tools for £40
