Strengths:    Excellent value for the price.I've used this kit for over a year now and it has worked well for me.I have buit-up and dismantled at least 15 bikes this summer and was only missing a Shimano BB tool which this kit lacks. All other tools have worked as intended,none have broken except the El-cheapo plastic tire irons.

Weaknesses:    Tire irons

Bottom Line:   
Great home starter kit,be careful with them and they will last.

Strengths:    inexpensive

Weaknesses:    low quality, cheap tools

Bottom Line:   
I've only been using these tools for two days. I've already broken the chain whip, and had to replace the chain tool because it didn't work correctly with my chain (my chain is a 9 speed...maybe it would work fine on an 8 speed?).

The tools are shoddy. I bought the kit because I thought I could get at least a few useful tools out of it.

Bottom line: you get what you pay for. I know that Park tools are pretty expensive, but if you're semi-serious about working on your bike you're going to end up buying them anyway as these tools break or don't work correctly. Also, you do get a lot of tools you'll probably never use.

I would recommend just buying the few tools that you need from Park. They have much better quality, and you'll be surprised how little you actually need.

Strengths:    cheap, has most stuff you need

Weaknesses:    cheap, doesn't have all the stuff you need, has stuff for older bikes

Bottom Line:   
the kit is definitely cheap and gives you a ton of tools.

definitely no shop quality tools, but they get the work done if you're not too demanding.

Has stuff in it you will never ever use unless you like restoring old bikes or very cheap ones.

After buying this I started buying replacement parts from Sears and Park, but it's definitely a very good starting point for the new home mechanic.

If you are a starting mechanic, add a torque wrench from Sears to your kit and you'll feel much better about your work.

Bottom Line:   
I had qualms about quality but the tools are well made, well made enough anyway. If you need any three of the tools you've already paid for the whole set so it is quite a deal. Minor gripe: when using the bb removal tool (in tandem with the crank wrench) the handle is so far from the bike it can be hard to keep from slipping out of the cup. I had to lock it into the vise-grips to get it done. Oh well.

Date Reviewed: May 25, 2002

Strengths:    Very complete selection of tools. Most of what you need, none of what you don't.

Weaknesses:    Small toolbox for adding other tools.

Bottom Line:   
I would highly recommend this product for anyone looking to do simple to moderate bike maintenance. I have been doing most of my maintenance and repairs with mini-tool until now. What a pleasure it is to have this kit. It has most all of the tools you'll need, except some specialized tools. Also, there arent' many tools in here that you'll never use. An excellent choice for anyone looking for a reasonably priced, well stocked tool kit.

Date Reviewed: May 1, 2002

Strengths:    It is great and has all the tools most mtn. bikers wanted. It works just perfect.

Weaknesses:    The only little problem there is that it doesn't have any star wrenches for taking off the disc (if ya have a bike with disc brakes).

Bottom Line:   
But the little problem isn't such a big deal, really. Other than that it is a great tool kit!!!

Complete Tool Kit?

I want to start doing the wrenching on my own bike. I have a pretty solid set of tools including a good in/lb torque wrench, allen & torx bits, and a host of other hand tools. But this winter, I'd like to totally disassemble my 2010 Specialized Rockhopper for paint and a buildup using new SRAM X ... Read More »
