No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Cons: requires less common tooling to torque tighten.
Am new to cycle building, so thought I'd save some cash and buy this two in one tool by Lezyne. Its well made and very tough and does the job of undoing and tightening your cassette lock rings and hollowtech BB cups. You'll need a big spanner to use it though (32mm AF) and this is the main problem, you can't fit a torque wrench easily to it. You'd need a open ended spanner head with an incorporated 1/2 or 3/8 drive socket to use on a torque wrench. These are available, but i'm guessing that most people will only have a calibrated ratchet wrench with a 1/2 sq drive post. These are useless on this tool. I've since purchased two separate 'Icetoolz' for BB cups and cassette lock ring, both have 1/2 square drive sockets, much easier to use. The Lezyne tool is great, if you're not too worried about torque values or are happy to buy the tooling required. It didn't save me any money (and I should've realise this before I purchased) so mine's going on e-bay.
