Cheap but good – Professional Bicycle Repair Tool Kit Set Reviews

posted by moshbear on 11/16/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- multitool is practically complete
- integrated thin wrench
- there is enough room to add a few more tools (in my case, a pressure gauge, a chain tool, an 8mm allen wrench)
Cons:
- metal on thin wrench was a bit soft
- multitool's two bolts need some tweaking with a 5mm allen key in order to gain stiffness
- tire levers are small (Park Tool type, as opposed to Tacx type)
- pump can't handle 50 psi
- low per-stroke pump volume
- no chain tool
- no 8mm allen key (for crank bolts)
Other:
- rubber patch kit was replaced by inner tube
- pump was replaced by CO2 system
- velcro straps are quite useful and reliable
Bottomline:
Worth it.
