    I’m fairly sure that your good self has always recommended a junior hacksaw. Mask wearing optional.

    What about the Mole Grips for when you can't be bothered to find the correct spanner?
    Then wonder why everything is rounded...


    Best tool I ever bought was a Torque Wrench.
  • It's possible that you already have a toolkit at home with tools such as sockets, wrenches, and screwdrivers. While these tools can be very useful, many bike-specific tools are required to service the bikes. Although these tools aren't necessarily expensive, the right tool can make the difference between a quick, easy maintenance session or an extended interlude that involves cursing, bleeding knuckles, and possible damage to expensive parts.
