The Repair Rebel by Chicago-based graduate Thomas Smafield is an 85 gram (3oz) circular 24-function multi-tool made from titanium. It can attach to underneath saddles with an elastic cord. Smafield sought $10,000 on Kickstarter and has so far raised over $16,000, guaranteeing his project's success. The project has another nine days to run.

Tools include nine Allen key heads (from 3mm to 15mm, also known as Hex keys), both Philips and flathead screwdrivers, a T25 tork head, plus four spoke keys to cover most models. Just pack one along with a spare tube, pump, plus a couple of tire levers and you’re all set.

"Repair Rebel is half the weight, has twice the amount of features, and costs a fraction of what is on the current market," claims Smafield on his Kickstarter page.
