Question.. I have all the univeral tools (drivers spanners sockets keys) I'll ever need to work on cycles, but for specialist cycle only tools what is the best buy?
What are the allen keys like in the chain reaction kit. I just putting together some tools to buy on chain reaction today and was looking to buy some hex allen tools, maybe a torque wrench.
Best to spend more on some decent standalone allen tools, rather than from a cheap kit. It will pay you back in the long term.
I'd agree with others about buying fewer, decent quality tools that you'll actually use. Obviously, everyone will have tools that they use on their own bikes every day (and it also depends on the generation of bikes you own - I don't think I've owned a bike with a square-taper bottom bracket for years, nor do any of my bikes have nuts that require a socket set!), but I would recommend the following if you want to properly maintain your own bikes. You don't need them all, but start from the top down and you won't go far wrong!

1. A decent set of allen keys. I absolutely love Wera and these are excellent value.
2. Decent tyre levers. I like these ones, but tyre levers are something of a religion to cycle mechanics, so expect others to have their own opinions!
3. TipTop puncture repair kit. Nothing is as good and you can buy the patches separately to keep the kit topped up. I've got a drawer full of the things!
4. Decent pump. Joe Blow trackpumps are well regarded and a decent price.
5. Workstand. Plenty out there without spending £00s.
6. Side cutters and small pliers. I've had a set of cheap ones (from a pound shop, no less!) for years that look very much like these, and they are always at the top of the tool box. I should get some better ones at some point!
7. Good quality cable cutters. No you don't need to buy the Park ones, but get some with hooked blades like these ones have and they'll make your life much easier when replacing both inner and outer cables as they cut much cleaner than flat blades.
8. Assorted flat-blade and cross-head screwdrivers.
9. Chain break tool. Any sort will do providing it will shove pins out as these days many people no longer use them to fit chains, preferring to use...
10. Chain quick-release pliers. One of those daft tools that I use all of the time when fitting and removing chains using chain quick links.
11. Cassette tool + chain whip. Personally, I like the ones with a pin up the middle to locate them, and Park's cassette pliers, but I use these several times a week so can justify the cost. A normal chain whip is much cheaper and fine for most people. If you never remove a cassette, you may never need this.
12. Cone spanners (thin spanners designed for adjusting hubs). I like the Wiggle ones and have two of each size as generally you use them in pairs. The ones in the kit in this deal will be almost unusably bad... I'd highly recommend these if you have cup and cone bearings as these need far more frequent maintenance and adjustment than most people give them!
13. A decent socket set is always a useful investment anyway, and I like Bahco and Teng, which are excellent quality at a reasonable price. For most work, always buy six-point sockets, not 12-point as they are much less likely to round off a stubborn bolt-head.
14. Seal pick set. Almost insanely useful and cheap tools for loads of different tasks and only a fiver from eBay! The straight pick I use every time I recable a bike to splay open the cut end of the outer cable before fitting the inner to ensure the lowest friction fitment.

(Oddly, I don't actually own a pedal spanner as most of mine don't use them rather needing a large allen-key on the inside end of the axle. YMMV here, and if you have pedals that require one, get a decent quality nice and long one!)

This list is more or less in order based on how often I use stuff, or how cheap it is. Stuff like spoke keys, torx drivers, bottom bracket tools, crank extractors etc. are likely to only be needed infrequently depending on your bikes, or the type of maintenance you do, so buy them as you need them and spread the cost. Where possible, buy decent stuff and it will last a lifetime. I've got 100s of task-specific tools for doing certain tasks (frame bearings, headsets, wheel maintenance etc.) but most people either won't need these or, as I've done, will just pick them up as and when they need them for a job.

Happy to accept suggestions for anything that you have in your own toolbox that you think I've missed!
