Best of luck in the middle of Wales with this and your TESCO pump. Make sure you shift to the side of the trail, most of you numpties fix your bikes 'mid-trail'.

Lots of cycle equip cheap, clothes and kit. As mister Hunter points out you get what you pay for. If you enjoy sustrans trail riding to the pub and back then it should be fine. Still hot.

I got mine from poundland - can I join the numpty club? I'll bring biscuits ...

Anyone who relies on this bendy rubbish is asking for trouble. Personally I would never hit the trails without (as a bare minimum) something like this professional tool kit safely tucked away in my panniers. A little more expensive, but what price piece of mind?:

Not sure about the toolkit but I've used a bunch of the Lidl cycling kit (base layers, socks, panniers) and it has been amazing value for money. I'll definately be stocking up on a few bits and pieces....

Looking at your previous commetns looks like you are a brands snob.

Good deal in my opinion.

I don't understand the negative comments on this, surly its better to have something (even cheap non branded) gear that may be just what you need to get you home should something go wrong,

I have a cheap muti-tool I have used on LOADS of occasions when a nut or similar has come loose. This has helped me get the bike sorted so I could carry on my ride of maybe just enough to get me home.

Good for an emergency back up surely? As for teh socks, gloves etc I bought some and used them on my Trek 1.1 Large road bike via my Elite Turbo Trainer. And guess what - they were all fine. Nae wonder people think cycling is populated by MAMIL's. Get a grip HOt from me.

Could I chime in with further negativity if i may

These cost about 1E in a german bargain store called Kik. I bought loads once and the loathed them with a furious rage.

The roundy bolt tools are too fat so you can't get them in a tight spot, too thin and slip. They also have no leverage so are unlikely to work anyway.

The alan keys are made of fairys and spring onions, and twist into a pretzel shape. Which isn't too annoying as the bolt they are attached to usually falls off leaving you with a tiny unusable alan key. Its so poorly made it trashes your bolts and nuts....

Yes they are nothing to purchase, but if you rely on these when you are 50 miles from home and have to loosen a tight bolt, your gonna have a bad time.

Oh and you are supposed to be able to use these as tyre levers. They are good at snapping however!

No, I'm not joking.

A spanner - used to loosen or tighten bolts - thats it. why the snobbery ?

I have just been out and bought a load of bike stuff, mainly clothing, from Lidl, and the quality is much better than I expected. I am normally a brand snob, but as I've got older (and poorer thanks to kids!!) I will buy any brand as long as it does the job, and this stuff looks like it will. Made from exactly the same materials as the expensive stuff and more than half the price. I do have a decent Topeak multitool for day/weekend riding and I'm not sure I would trust a £1.99 tool, but If they put as much effort into the tooling as the clothing, then I would give it a go!
