    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.

                        I bought this same toolkit back in 1998 from the magazine. At the time I was a missionary for my church and on a bike everyday all day. As a big person I broke my bike frequently. With this toolkit I was able to strip my mountain bike down to the frame and put it all back together again. I was able to fix/replace everything that broke. It was compact enough to put in my luggage and go with me from place to place. I think it was even the same price back then! Its nice to see that the toolkit has been updated since then. I would Highly recommend this.
