I've been looking at some of the Tool Kits from the various brands/stores online but here's my problem: many of these kits include tools that I already have and in many instances, aren't as good as what I already have. If some of the more experienced Wrenchers could recommend the basic tools, I would greatly appreciate your recommendations. My use(s ) would include such tasks as Crank/Bottom bracket removal, cone adjusting , chain replacement, steering tube maintenence, but not limited to these tasks. What Starter Tools would you recommend? I would rather buy the Tools seperately so that way I wouldn't be duplicating Tools I already have. I have complete 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 Sockets sets already in Metric and American sizes, open end and box wrenches of every size, allen wrenches, Screwdrivers of every shape--all collected over 5 decades of Tinkering. The Tools don't have to be the highest quality but I don't want Junk either. Not sure if they are any American Made Bike Tools, maybe someone could chime in if they know who does make American Made Bike Tools. Buying American would really interest me, even if they were a few dollars more. Thanks for any Help & Suggestions.
Edit--Just did a search here (which I should have done first) and came up with several suggestions. Still, I would appreciate opinions on the Quality of the Various Tool brands and if any American maker of Bike tools exists. Thx
