Back in the 80s I had a small pocket size chainbreaker, to be used w/ wrench or socket.
Anything like that avail. Today?

Have not seen one in decades.
If you find one, please share the source.
Wish I still had mine.

This is a chain breaker I usually carry with me on the trail. I've had it for years now with no issues and have used it a lot but always in the shop and never on the trail. I've read or heard of bad reviews of it but it's worked for me. While technically "pocket-sized", it is rather heavy to just carry in a pocket. I have it in a bag I carry on the rear carrier. The handle is removable. I paid 9.95 for mine some years back. Probably a ton of similar lighter "pocket chain breakers" out there so Google may be your friend.

Certainly a nice tool.
Interesting the different tools we wish to carry on our bikes.
Different strokes for different folks so no criticism here. After all some of you may correctly wish a spare chain for your Tierra del Fuego, Himalayan or other remote long distance adventures.
Personally I do not regularly travel with a spare chain that is too long thus requiring a chain breaker. If I were to carry a chain it would already be sized correctly.

I just carry a repair link & pocket breaker + MINIMUM tools, & first aid.

At my age a few hr ride can take all day.
