I have this and I keep it at work for everyone to use. It's not great quality (the chain tool has failed already as has one of the allen keys). But I suppose it's better than nothing

I have this kit from last year when it was available. It's got really useful tools that have saved me a fortune in shop repairs - none have broken, and the Allen keys are really nice.

Damn it, this week I paid £7 at Halfords just for the little adapter thing to take gears off a wheel (bottom left of the picture). Looks like a neat little set.

Yea good set, just annoying when you have already bought pieces separately when you needed them.

damn, more money i have to spend!

would make a good fathers day gift

Looks like a good comprehensive set for most DIY bikers. I'll be trying to pick one up.

I have one from 2 years ago. Only the tyre levers have broken. It's a great value set.

Edinburgh bike sell something similar to this for around fifty quid. Might be better quality and if you can wait for their half yearly sale it's the same price too.

Cracking find, all for the cost of one park tool peddle spanner!

Heat.

Three words.

Sigma link chain.

The peddle spanners just bend but the rest has been good. Crank tool no use for shimano octalink chain sets either.

Have bought Lidl tools before. Utter crap. Rather spend my money on keit that last more than one use

I havent bought this but the Lidl tools I've bought in the past have all been pretty decent.

Have had this since last year and it's seen plenty of use. Nothing has bent or broken so far. Considering the cost of individual bike maintenance tools, I think it's a steal.

I've changed a bottom bracket, removed rear sprockets and changed pedals - all ok, though I was lucky the pedal spindles had been greased when they went on as they can be a pig to remove when corroded.

If you have a bike - You will find you have to adjust gears, seat, brakes, even pedals etc... I got a kit like this from ebay for about the same price. Its been a lifesaver and paid for itself many times over. (You have to use these special tools to adjust and repair parts on a bike).

Anyone know how it compares to the decathlon set for £3 more?

decathlon.co.uk/ful…tml

has anyone bought this today? what's the quality like and which bits are outdated?

I have most of the tools but may buy this and sell my others if quality is good!

any of you guys happy with yours?

Almost bought it yesterday - anyone got feedback?

I got this tool kit a couple of years ago. I've added to it better quality bits like spoke keys, freewheel tool, but I've found it's a good starting point. There are a couple of bits I'd not trust like the chain tool and tyre levers but on the whole what else I've used seems OK for home use. Wouldn't stand up to regular, workshop level of wear.
