Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro A great investment for serious mechanics
The Pedro's Pro chain tool is a heavy-duty tool, suitable for 99% of chains, it can even handle Campagnolo parts (an Italian manufacturer of bike parts). It's not the best pick for the average cyclist, who might need to use it only about once a year. For serious mechanics, however, the comfort, durability and versatility of this chain tool would be a great investment.
Pro Will last for many years
The plastic fels very solid, and the metal parts are made of heat-treated steel, and it comes with 2 replacement pins. It's durable, and is likely to last for a long time. Like all Pedro's tools, it has a lifetime warranty.
Pro Very comfortable to use
The ergonomic thermoplast handles will keep your hands comfortable and injury free on your daily chain breaking. They're easy to grip and easy to turn, which will matter a lot after you've pushed out several pins in one day.
Pro Fits the majority of bike chains
This chain tool has a replaceable bridge design, which fits chains from single-speed up to 11-speed, and can even handle Campagnolo chains. This will cover the vast majority of bike chains out there.
Con Overkill for the average cyclist
While it's certainly a very comfortable and trustworthy chain tool, it might be too much for the average cyclist, who would likely only need it about once a year. It's worth the money if you're going to use it every day, otherwise it's overkill.
