    Crank puller and cassette removal tools are Shimano and won't work on your Campy components. A complete set of allen wrenches is useful, though, if you have a set in your seat bag, that's probably all you'll really need.

    My must-haves would include:

    Complete set of allen wrenches, crank arm puller, cassette removal tool, chain whip, pedal wrench, spoke wrench, cable cutters. Those are probably the only bike-specific tools you'll really need, unless you get into some serious wrenching since you probably already have screw drivers, hex wrenches, etc.

    I might have left something out --- repair stand, truing stand

    You're going to want both campy BB tools. The Chorus and Veloce use different ones. The Record/Chorus tool also serves as a cassette locking ring remover. Beyond that I think the essentials are repair stand, hex wrenches, chain tool, cable and housing cutter, 13 and 15mm cone wrenches, phillips and flat screwdrivers, large chain nose pliers, standard crank puller. Wheel tools would come next, I guess.

    Thanks both of you.

    I actually have FSA cranks on both bikes: SL-K on Tarmac, Gossamer on XVeloce. FSA Paper documentation recs Park BBT-9. Park's site lists this as for Shimano. FSA also list FSA cup E0102, which I cannot find anywhere.
