I was walking through the mechanics area of our local bike shop (SW London, UK) with my husband and he pointed at some tools and said "you could get some double handle bike tools for me for Christmas".
I know nothing about bike tools, but I don't want to go back and ask my husband exactly what he wants or there will be no element of surprise (and believe me, if I get get him the right tools he will be surprised).
I've searched on the net and found Lifeline T handle hex wrench sets and Park tools P handle hex wrench sets and they look like the sort of thing that my husband pointed at(!).
a) are T handle and P handle tools 'double handle' bike tools?
b) what's the difference between T handle and P handle (apart from price - P handle ones seem to be three times the price)?
c) which should I get?
d) are there any other bike tools that a keen amateur mechanic would like for Christmas? He's not a beginner - he's quite a competent mechanic and does the bike mechanics of our tri club's cycle coach's bike (who's pretty fussy who touches his bike)
If it makes any difference, my husband is left-handed and he will want good quality tools and is a road cyclist/triathlete.
Any advice would be most welcome! Thanks.
