Sharp cable cutters leave your cables un-frayed, and chain link pliers make
removal of stubborn master links a breeze.
Park makes the best spoke wrenches. Period. If you’re using something else to
true your wheels, you’re using something inferior.
A chain tool is essential for not only repairing a damaged chain,
but also installing a new one. We like the Park one for its simplicity and compatibility with several chain sizes.
Park’s BBT- 9 tool allows for bottom
bracket cup removal and also includes
a tool for tightening or removing
Shimano-style X-type bottom brack-et-bearing preload caps.
Screwdriver—another essential. Be sure to invest in a solid
Phillips head and a couple flat heads of multiple sizes. Small
Phillips-head drivers are less useful for most bike applications. ■
