Quick review: Topeak ChainBOT chain tool

Hands down the coolest chain tool ever
Hands down the coolest chain tool ever

Chain tools are the kind of tools that are very functional by look and design. They do their job, and then they go back to the tool box, forgotten until the next time you need your chain worked on. Working with chains is also one of the most annoying tasks you have on your bike, for some odd reason. Even more the reason to love Topeak’s ChainBOT, which is just fantastically awesome! This tiny chrome robot that is not only handsome enough to with a Red dot design award, but it’s very sturdy and does its job well.

I wish all tools would have this kind of thought and emotion behind them, it surely would make the world even better.

Our verdict: ★★★★★

The Topeak ChainBOT is sturdy, awesome, but comes with a hefty price tag – but we feel it’s worth the price.
