      Comments about Nashbar Essential Tool Kit:

      I think for the investment this is an excellent set up, it lacks some debatable "essentials" however I don't think its intent is to cover any and all mechanical issues. If you're an owner of multiple bikes or one that requires regular and in depth repairs you're likely to be in need of care at your LBS anyway, however for most maintenance jobs, small to medium tune-ups/repairs or quick on-site adjustments this box is on point. I keep it in the car for local or travel rides and reserve the hard-core, in depth indulgences for the pegboard in "the lab" at home or my wrenching buddies at my LBS.

        By no means do I consider myself a bike mechanic but there are a lot things one can do on a bike yourself. All it takes is some good old fashioned elbow grease and (of course) the right tools. These tools are great for basic bike maintenance and some not so basic.

        The nashbar essential cycling kit had many of the tools that I require to perform maintenance on my bicycles. Although it is not a complete or comprehensive toolkit, it is without a doubt that this tool kit will be essential in performing general maintenance on the bicycles.

            Comments about Nashbar Essential Tool Kit:

            Bought this as a quick re-start to home bike mechanic work as most of my tools disappeared over the years.

            Nashbar Essential Tool Kit provides a fairly comprehensive set of tools needed to make basic repairs. There are some hits and misses on tool selection and quality, but overall this is a great starting place for the beginner/intermediate home mechanic. The handy carrying case makes this easy to store at home, or in a car when traveling with bicycles. All of the bases are covered from drive train to wheels to tires.

            A couple of misses: There is absolutely no documentation as to which tool is which. I should think a beginner might want to know what's in the box. Having the socket wrenches on the backside of the pedal wrench prevents the use of a narrow cheater bar pipe....something a pedal wrench sometimes requires. Cone wrench set is fairly flimsy, but gets the job done. The BB wrench was a mystery, never fit on any of the three bikes I was working on. The patch kit is seriously low end...best to leave it out, or upgrade the quality.

            Suggestions: Add 3-way 4, 5, 6 mm hex tool. That's probably the BEST tool a new mechanic can have. Add a Bike Mechanics basics guide, or at the very least a tool ID card. Either of these could be fitted to a recessed portion on the front or rear of the carrying case.

            Overall, this is a great starting point. Serious bike work will likely result in purchasing higher quality, more durable tools, but the Nashbar Essential Tool Kit is a great thing to have around in the shop or on the road.

              Nice assortment and good price on a starter kit. I'm not sure what I will need first. I should be able to fix most things that would require a trip to the bike shop. My bikes are new.
              A booklet with the name of the tool and a picture of its possible use would have been nice. I will figure it out, but that would have been a nice inexpensive addition.

                  Comments about Nashbar Essential Tool Kit:

                  Bought this initially for the cassette tool and chain whip on the principle that I'd spend about twice as much for a variety of tools that I'd probably need at some point. Tools are better quality--at least heavier--than I expected. Chain tool and bottom bracket tool work fine. Would have preferred a bladed spoke holder in lieu of loose Allen wrenches, but you're getting a range of decent-quality tools for a fraction of what you'd pay for separate tools or for a higher-end kit that most people won't need.
