I've had these for a three months now and was using them for binding random objects to my rear bicycle rack.

The second Joker (the one with the URL at the foot) in both decks I received has faded colours but this appears to be a design feature. They wipe clean easily.
VeloChampion MLT10 Bike Multi Tool VeloChampion
Just recently I used the 3mm and 5mm hex tools provided on this multitool to perform a pad replacement on Tektro Draco hydraulic disc brakes.

I initiated a return for this item under the Sale of Goods Act, stating it was "unfit for purpose", and Amazon have accepted.
My local bike shop examined the multitool, and I compared it to the one they commonly use, and certainly the hex keys on mine seemed less precise, and more rounded, resulting in the slippage that led to… Read more
