      Comments about Nashbar Essential Tool Kit:

      I am not saying that you don't need your local bike shop.....(tuning a high end bike is something that I am willing to pay for) .but there are a lot of times when I need something fixed so I can ride it the next day or a neighbor kids department store Bike (that isn't worth bringing in to have fixed) needs something done.

      I have owned this kit for about a year now and I have used far more an I thought...... I do a search on You Tube and more times than not, I can figure out how to make the repair or adjustment.

      I didn't even know what half of the tools were for when I bought it, but at this point, I have used almost everything in the kit.

      Hard to beat this kit for the money.....nice job with this product Nashbar.

      Comments about Nashbar Essential Tool Kit:

      Better than expected, better than average toolkit for what you pay. Used it to refurb a 70's Peugeot classic 10 speed that I'll eventually strip down to a single speed. Added new bottom bracket, cranks, chain, handle bars-bull horns; I detest drop-downs. No hate to the purists, just have my own preferences. Running wider tires on the 27" rims as well. Skinnies are fast but I wanted a little more meat on the wheels. Runs great. Couldn't have done it without this kit. Recommend it if your an enthusiast who likes to tinker or if your ride needs a basic tune up. If I were doing a full rebuild, I'd be sending the more technical stuff to my local bike shop. Great kit. Thanks Nashbar!

      Nice kit for common maintenance / repair

      Pros

      • Decent Selection Of Tools
      • Versatile

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Commuting/City
        • Maintenance Rebuild

        Comments about Nashbar Essential Tool Kit:

        This toolkit has most of the commonly used tools for maintaining the mechanicals of your cycle. I have used the cone wrenches to rebuild wheel hubs, the bottom bracket tool for removal / installation, the crank puller, tire levers, spoke wrench, cassette removal tool with chain tool, and even rebuilt some cheap pedals with the pedal servicing tool. The non-speciality tools haven't been touched (hex wrenches, screwdriver, torx wrenches) but could be useful to those who don't already own basic tools for around the house.
        I would like to see a freewheel removal tool (bought one separately), but you can't have everything, I suppose. The only tool that might need to be replaced due to wear and tear would be the cone wrenches. They are a heavy stamped steel, and would be more durable if they were cast. All in all, this is a great starter kit.

            Nice tool set. Quality was a bit better than expected. Have replaced cranks, overhauled bottom brackets, replaced pedals, adjusted wheel bearings. The cone wrenches are a bit light duty, but work well. Wish this came with a freewheel remover, but you can't have everything!

                  There is not much that these tools can't be used to fix on a bike. I've used every tool and they've all worked great.

                    Got this as a gift last Christmas and I'm probably going to order a second one next time there's a 20% off deal.

                    I've used just about every tool in the kit. The screwdrivers are junk and the cone wrenches are iffy but everything else seems solid. I absolutely love the tire levers (so much that I bought a second pair for my jersey pocket). I actually came here to see if the pedal wrench is available outside this kit (it isn't) so I can have one to carry with me (great for adjusting cantilever brakes or removing non-qr wheels).

                          I haven't had an opportunity to use every tool yet, but the ones I've used work well. The only real complaint I have at at this point is that (and this may be just me), I had to do some research to figure out what a couple of the tools are. There are minor complaints about little things, like the chain tool doesn't have very freely moving threads, and the cone wrenches are made out of very soft metal (almost like they forgot to heat treat). Overall, very pleased with the tool set.
