Been thinking about this a fair bit. I don’t need to use tools on 95%  of my rides and when I do it’s a 4-5-6mm hex 99% of the time. Not even sure the last I pulled my pump out and in fact the only things I’ve used in my frame bag are my buff and tire plugs to help a friend. But I always carry a knife, pliers, plugs, pump, and full range of tools regardless. Why? Because I have needed them in the past to not have to walk home (and it can be a fairly solid distance that as I usually ride from home).  It’s an interesting conundrum. Once I’m done this tool test I may play around with minimizing to the tools I’ve actually used in the last year.
