I felt like it was a little too bulky and heavy for what I wanted. I ordered another original with the water bottle mountain. I love my first one, and really appreciate the fact that it helps accent my orange and black bike. I wish you had red and bright green anodized sets.
This is a great tool. Not just for trail and roadside repairs either. After an epic ride on local roads, gravel and trails, a friend and I paused for a well earned post-ride coffee and pastry at a convenient café. We chose the last unoccupied table on the patio only to find that it was unused because it was essentially unusable thanks to loose screws and bolts on both the chairs and the table. Fix-It-Stix to the rescue! I quickly tightened all the fasteners and in gratitude the owner gave me a discount on the snacks. I never ride without my Stix!
I bought this tool along with the original fix it sticks to carry on my bikes. It's a well made tool, the bits fit snugly in the sticks. My issue is I had planned to carry this on my bike in a bag, but the bits don't stay in the plastic holder very well so they would end up rolling around in the bottom of whatever bag they were in. I could carry just the sticks with the bits in them and they would stay put, but the originals do that and they are much lighter. I guess it would be a good home shop tool but you would still be losing bits if you weren't careful. I gave this one to a friend in need and will purchase more of the original sticks.
Have several different set of sticks excellent tool.
