    Word to the wise, try and get a decent set of allen keys as well, check out the Halfords Professional range, for example.
    Cheap allen keys are (almost) always a false economy.

    Theres a seller on ebay selling Bondhus Gorilla folding Allen key sets for £5 plus £2 postage which is a bargain.

    halfords do bolts that fit well, not made of cheese! and pro hex bit that is "tight fit" in the hex part of the bolt head

    surely they're fake or stolen at that price.

    I thought that myself but the seller seems okay he has plenty of feedback. Thinking of buying one I reckon its worth £7 to find out
