    FFS go to school first and learn to spell.

    Look on any of the online shops. there is also a good list on parktools and in the MTB FAQ´s.

    Ice Toolz are worth a look. They won't break the bank and on the whole are reliable.

    Get them on cycle to work scheme. 40% cheaper.

    I got an excellent "pro tool kit" on the scheme plus other bits. Ask your local bike shop and yeah - FFS Spelling and grammar!
    Anyone else ride a Schwinn?...

    I've got a lifeline tool kit from wiggle and highly recommend it . A few other people on this forum have the same tool and like it too. they come in a few different sizes so you can get one to suit your budget. The following links might help:

    I learn't my lesson with household tools. One big kit of cheapie stuff is great for occasional use but six years on and a lot of it has been replaced. With the bike kit I'm picking up better quality bits as and when I need them and as I'm spreading the cost I'm not really noticing an issue. The thing is - I shouldn't ever need to buy again so in the long run I KNOW I will save money and have kit that is more suitable and pleasurable to use.

    Anyone who's ever cut brake cable with pliers and then used proper cable cutters will know what I mean.

    I have the ProBikeKit version of the LifeLine Professional kit - and so far impressed. The cheaper one has much of the essentials, while the pro adds decent quality seperate allen keys a and a few other bits.

    Crank extractor could be better, I prefer the ones without integrated handles.
