Re: Multi-tasking tools.
When I was riding pedal bikes for 300+ miles a week I carried a small piece of coat hanger. It was bent on both ends like a hook and that way I could use it to hold the chain ends together while I was trying to fix it. It's only about 2.5 inches long with the hooks so it doesn't take up much space in my tool kit.
