The BioLogic FixKit multi-tool is a well-designed emergency set that includes two less-common tools: a 15mm spanner and a chain tool.

The FixKit has a total of 20 tools and the decent-sized handle means it offers plenty of leverage when you need it. The 15mm spanner will be especially welcome to fixed-gear riders and anyone who uses hub gears or has bolt-on hubs to stop their wheels getting nicked. It locks in place when needed.

It comes with a neoprene cover to stop it scratching other items in your pocket, and to protect your hands from its edges when you're reefing on a reluctant bolt.

In use the FixKit is easy to handle. Its slightly greater reach and leverage compared to some multi-tools makes for easy roadside adjustments. The chain tool is good enough for field repairs, though you'll want something beefier in the workshop.

It's made from aluminium and chrome-vanadium steel, packs down to a comfortably pocketable 14 x 40 x 77mm and weighs 157g. That's a shade on the high side, but acceptable when you consider you're getting a chain tool and 15mm spanner, which you won't find in lighter multi-tools.

Verdict

High quality, compact roadside fixer.
