Lezyne SV10 Multi Tool Long-term review

I had this multi-tool for several years.

A few years ago I managed to bend the Allen key, I don’t remember how, maybe I dropped it.
I actually had to bend it back as it was so bent it was not possible to tuck it in.I had to buy a multi-tool, and this was the easiest solution, but it does have all the tools I need, for example, the Allen key used for reach adjustment on Shimano brakes.

But the size makes this multi-tool fit into tight places well, for example adjusting pads on mechanical brakes. It served me well the few times I had to use it for my own bikes, but I also used it many times on other peoples bikes, So it got a lot of use combined, but I need more tools than this tool has.

I have dropped it many times on hard ground like rock surface and asphalt.

Pros:

  • chain tool spins smoothly.
  • Robust and smooth, you can easily rotate the tools out, and they don’t wobble, htere is no play, if you notice play, the bolt just needs to be tightened.

Cons:

  • not enough leverage for very tight bolts.
  • The stitching for on the sleeve wore out fast, so it was too slack, but that’s easy to fix.
