I was going to agree with the posters above, but then I looked at the tool kit...
It seems to be stocked with the tools you need to do most maintenance on a modern bike, as long as you have the right bottom bracket and casette to work with the included spline tools.
However, some of the stuff included is likely of very cheap quality... I am thinking specifically of the 4-size cone wrenches (two sizes per end with stepped openings), and the chain cleaning box.
Further, if the spoke keys and chain breaker are not made to very tight tolerences, they will cause mor eproblems then they will solve.
If I were you I would buy the kit (at $50 it is hard to go wrong) then pay close attention to the tools and replace with better quality before they wear out and start wrecking the bike.
