i'm looking to purchase a tool kit soon and i was wondering what you guys have had experience with? anything really good? anything to steer clear of? i have always used park tools at work and i know they are wonderful, but so expensive! i am looking for a slightly cheaper alternative (<$150). i've been looking at the Nashbar bigger than big, spin doctor pro, and supergo T1 kit. i've noticed with one certain smaller kit (see pic) that almost every company has this same kit with their own name on it... does this hold true of the larger kits?
i work a lot with my bikes, completely disassembling them for frame painting sometimes, also do a lot of thrift store conversions, so i do need a complete kit, not one for general maintenance. thanks!
