A fully metal tool can just give you greater confidence that it will be able to hold up to the stresses of daily riding and repair.
The Mini 20 has a great idea behind its structure: the tools themselves are compact and stubbly, using the handle to provide most of its length and leverage.
Even though they were trying to keep the tool light and minimalistic I was pleased to see that they had kept the chain break tool. For mountain bikers that tool can be so essential.
Really, theirs only a couple things that are missing from this tool when compared to Topeak's top sellers, the Alien II and Alien III. That would be the box end wrenches and the knife. So you might want to carry a good pocket knife with your.
The box end wrenches are something that you would probably use only rarely. In fact, I normally rode with an even more minimal tool. However, I can understand how some people would like having those box wrenches along
And, did I mention that it is very light weight? For the weight conscious individual, this tool gives you the max potential with the least weight.
Plus, its all metal construction lets you really crank down on those bolts without worrying about breaking it. It's a reassuring feeling
The bottom line?
For the money, The Topeak Mini 20 has everything you will really need. It's super strong and designed to last. Check it out!
