I don't need everything, but they would be handy to have.

I do need a chain whip, hollowtech tool, 8mm allen key, cassette remover and chain splitter - which when added up is around 25quid

So this kit seems pretty good vallue.

Just want to make sure it is.

    Yeah that is pretty good, especially as it has a HT2 bb tool as well, which many of this type don't.

    What about the one in Lidl? Currently doing a voucher if you spend £30 you get £5 off so you could get toolkit (£25) and bike pump (£5) for £25.00.

    Or just get the toolkit for £25.00 - seems ok to me but not sure what others think.
  • Quirrel - i've got that exact toolkit and it has covered pretty much everything i've needed to do to my bike. The only thing i've bought on top is a small spanner for XT bleed nipples as using the adjustable was a faff. The quality seems spot on.

    Good. I bought one after Supersonics confirmation.

    Can't really argue at 33 quid.
