    Tools for bike maintenance/repair

    Hey Folks,

    I was looking at investing in some new tools. Always good to find an excuse to buy some new tools right? And I was wondering what some other folks favorite tools are for working on their bikes. Thought maybe I'd run across something interesting I have not tried yet.

    You'll find several posts about favorite tools and popular brands with a search of the forums.

    I generally stay with Park. I've been dissapointed with most of the less expensive tools that I've bought thinking I could get by with something a little cheaper. If you're using something less-expensive and don't mind it, it's probably because you haven't experienced the quality that comes with Park. Don't get me wrong though - some companies do make less expensive tools that work fine. I use Performance cone wreches in my home workshop and haven't had a problem. Many of the less-expensive tools will work ok in a home workshop setup, but they won't be as comofortable or as sturdy as something by a more respected company.
