Don´t have all the tools you may need – Chromed Steel Bicycle Repair Tool Kit (21-Tool Set) Reviews

posted by aylons on 02/14/2009 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
-Feels sturdy and solid.
-Has lots of box wrenches which other tools usually don´t have.
-There´s a lock that prevent some wrenchs from spinning while using - this is great.
-The repair kit is really good, even the lime is well build.
-Has allen keys, nipple wrench and philips, so, at least you can do the most important emergency repairs.
-The fabric pouch is really nice and sturdy.
Cons:
-Doesn´t have all the tools a biker may need, ie, chain tool.
-It have some tools I can´t figure out how I would use it ona bike. It would be ok if it didn´t add weight to the tool.
-The locking mechanism (which prevents wrench from spinning) is awkward to unlock.
Other:
I bought this tool because I couldn´t find a way to buy a branded one in Brazil. It really does what it say it does, but it´s no match to the most expensive tools.
Bottomline:
Buy this if you need an emergency repair tool - it wiil do the job. But don´t expect it to be your definitive tool.
