How many here that stay on the road carry a 9/10/11 speed chain tool? I bet less than 20%
In the last two decades of riding, I can count on two fingers the number of chain issues I've seen on a ride, whether solo or group. Its a risk/reward calculus, sure, but chain tool is pretty far down the list of needs for the usually 40-mile hammerfest loop. Now, 600k brevet, maybe a different story.

The proper allen key to remove your wheel in the event of a flat is near the top of the list, even if you're just headed down to the corner store.
