Bad quality – Replacement Bicycle Bike Aluminum Alloy Handlebar Hand Grips with Repairing Tool Set - Black (Pair) Reviews

posted by midlander on 02/28/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Smart idea to hide the tool in the bar. Weight pretty acceptable (125 g without the tool and caps). Contains the most important tool for outdoor bike servicing. It holds in place and does not rattle.
Cons:
The chain cutter is very bad. The tip of screw bended during the first use. The thread of screw is loosen and I guess I will tear it soon. The material of cutter also does not seem very durable. The thread of plastic caps is of poor quality and it is difficult to get the tool in/out.
Other:
If you do need some tool you can replace it, it is easy to dismantle. I do not have any screws with outer hex head so I am thinking of replacing or removing these parts.
Bottomline:
The price equals the quality. Low price, low quality. It is a pitty, because making it much better would cost only a little. I bought the tool mainly for the chain cutter which seems to be worthless.
