I picked up a Tern tool from the K2 Asia product guy recently and I must say that I am pretty impressed with its quality, fit and finish.
The Tern Tool is available on-line via Premium Bike Gear at USD$40 (RM128.28) a piece excluding freight charges and tax (none for tools).
It came with a nice packaging and in it, a neoprene sleeve including a patch kit.
This had exceeded my expectations because I was looking at a bare-minimal set-up.
|A neat package: the tool in a neoprene sheath|
There are about 20 implements on this tool.
It folds neatly into a frame and there are two sets of removable wrench, one - 15mm crescent-shaped wrench, which you can use to remove axle nuts.
This is useful if you ride a bike with an internal hub gear. And during emergencies, you can also use it to remove your pedals.
Integrated onto the 15mm wrench is a bottle cap opener! Now, drinking bottle beers would never be the same again..
|The content of the tool, the patch kit is neat!|
On the Tern Tool, you fill find a tire lever, spoke wrench and a series of variable-sized hexagon screw drivers, flat and philips screw driver and a chain cutter.
So, in short, no stones was left unturned in designing this interesting tool.

|Expect a lot of punch in this little package|
I was told by the K2 Asia product guy that a batch of the Tern Tool might arrive in Malaysia by the end of the third-quarter along with some Biologic goodies.
So, that said, let's hope that it will be sold here!
