poor quality tools; they break easily

PostedMay 11, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Cons: Poor quality, Expensive, all round garbage, better ways to waste money, breaks easily
I bought this set to do my own maintenance and needed to change my cassette to a new wheel. The chain whip broke everytime I attempted to take off the cassette of the old wheel. The only useful tool was the chain rivet tool which is need to fix the chain whip when the links go flying off...DO NOT BUY THIS CHEAP AND NASTY SET!!!

There is a reason this is the cheapest 'advanced'

PostedNovember 21, 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Looks great
Cons: Poor quality, Expensive
Disappointed, it will do for most routine maintenance and some more special jobs but you can get more elsewhere.
I am not happy with the finish for many tools spanners are rubbish and the swappable handles have flimsy connectors.

Bought this for the office - it's got nearly everything you need, but could do with a 13mm spanner too

Not worth the money

PostedJune 6, 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Looks great
Cons: Poor quality, Heavy, Expensive
I bought this with the intention of fixing my other half's bike.
It contains nothing you need to fix the most common bike faults. Not only this, but the allen keys are a pain to get our of their holder and to put back in.
I resorted to smashing the keys out on the concrete to get them out. A blinding omission from this kit is an adjustable spanner.
The spanners supplied aren't small enough to get something as simple as a pannier onto a bike and the metal is so flimsy and thin that they're easy to break.
This kit is all style and no substance.
