    crank pullers - I have one of the ones with the attached handle, it's too short and not enough leverage. If you get one without a handle you can use a nice long wrench on it - or a ratchet ring perhaps.

    Exchangable tips are a good thing to have - the one tool will cover many cranks this way.

    fwiw - I'd look for something like this: http://www.coloradocyclist.com/img/p.../parsjcwp6.jpg

    Awesome I will check that out, I have all the basic ratcheting tools and sockets and wrenches, I just need those other special tools. But thanks for letting me know, because those pieces tend to be cheaper thank the crank tools with a handle.

    Looks like a Fixie crowd targeted thing..
    plan: hook spanner, to loosen LH thread lockring,
    + chainwhip, to unscrew the cog,
    + for axle nut, an open end wrench.

    Looks like a good deal: chain whip, plus lock ring spanner, plus pedal wrench for about what any one of these tools costs.

    I have one. It's cheap and not terribly ergonomic, but it can be good for occasional use.
    Please email me rather than sending me a private message. My address is noglider@pobox.com

    Is it durable? That is my concern, because of the cheap price I want something durable, if not I may just buy each piece individually, but for the price an all in one usage I had to ask.

    Not a pro tool but a great deal for a budget minded person doing their own maintenance or maybe a support mechanic for a team on the road.
    Yep, THAT Ira
