Pedro's starter tool kit includes the most essential tools - a pedal wrench, flat and Phillips screwdrivers, a cable cutter, a cassette lockring socket, a cog wrench, a chain tool with eight spoke wrenches, tire levers, and a drivetrain brush. It's not an extensive set, and it's not meant to be one. By keeping the number of tools to a minimum, this set sacrifices quantity for quality. See More
If you're considering this tool kit, you might have to invest a bit more to have a complete starter kit. Any bike enthusiast would benefit from a chain-wear gauge, and a tool for griping the cassette lock-ring tool, which are not included in this kit. See More
Many tool kits try to include as many specialized tools as possible, but the Pedro's starter kit keeps it simple. Some pockets in the tool wrap are left empty, so you can have room for tools you might already have, or that you might acquire along the way. See More
The X-Tools kit is the most comprehensive kits for it's price, suitable for very light maintenance. It includes such essential tools as tire levers, a chain breaker, spoke and hex wrenches. The inclusion of a puncture repair kit adds a nice touch, and the tire levers in this kit are larger than in most other kits for extra stubborn rubber. See More
For anything other than very light touch ups, the quality of these tools leave much to be desired. The metal is very soft, and smaller components snap off easily, usually, just in the middle of doing something important. The Allen keys are not very durable, and might damage the bolts you're working on. See More
