advice on buying bike tools in Europe.
First of all , for starter mechanics, not sure how large of a tool kit to buy. Mostly like to putz around with repairs such as bottom brackets, hubs, brakes, deraillerus. Gonna first get some used beater bikes to just start with in order to get used to applying my bike manuals to real exercies; before I'd venture to my bikes.
can you buy a decent set of tools on line. ? To whom would you turn for a decent set of tools . I figure a starter kit is not 100% complete, I can buy additional tools as needed. Like quality along with a decent price.
I've been using Roseversand's web shop: http://www.roseversand.de. Their English product descriptions are a bit funny sometimes, but otherwise it's a reasonably good shop. They have some tools available, and at least one tool kit. From their main page go "Accessories" - "Care/Maintenance". I've only ordered parts, panniers etc. from them, so I have no idea how their tools compare to others in terms of pricing or quality.
To err is human. To moo is bovine.
Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
