It all depends on the level of repairs you plan on doing. Here's a few things I have in my own work area.
- Park CT3 chain breaker.
- a good set of T-handle allen key hex wrenches. (plastic handles will break!
- a 4" bench vise w/ wood jaws. (so as not to damage parts)
- a 6" bench ginder.
- wheel truing stand and dishing tool.
- Adjustable wrenches
- spoke wrench(s)
- cable puller and cable/housing cutting tool.
- a good size tub of grease, some chain lube, and litres upon litres of degreaser.
...plus more smaller odds and ends. I seem to get the most use out of the stuff listed above though.
