I spend a lot of time tinkering with my bikes and my friends bikes, but I don't really have all of the tools that I need. At all. My tool set is very limited. I have a chain tool, some screw drivers, some allan wrenches, a pump, and that's about it. I have a stand that works ok for my needs.
I have a few bikes kicking around that I want to tinker with but I don't have everything that I need to get the bottom brackets off, the cassettes, the pedals, etc.
I see 44-piece bike tool sets on Amazon and I think they look beautiful. (this one
, for example). I also appreciate that it's compact. It's apartment living for me, and my living room also doubles as my workshop.
Should I just spend the $99 and have everything that I need? I'd like to just get down to the nitty-gritty without having to spend a ton of time collecting tools. In other words, I'd like to acquire my tool set as economically as possible, but if it makes sense to get everything I need with one-click, I'm open to that.
I ride road bikes, but I also have a hybrid and I'd like to be as versatile as possible.
