    Looking for PARK tools, Master set or large amount of tools.

    Hey guys, I am new to this forum.
    So I am opening up a bikeshop in Lynnwood on a budget. No bank loans, no outside help just worked hard to save and get where I am. Thus said I am in need of tools and unable to spend 4+ grand at this moment on a new set.
    If any old bikeshop owners sitting on some tools that they may want to get rid of or you know of a shop closing down in any parts of the country please let me know.
    Thanks for all your help

    Are you sales and marketing or a bike mechanic? I find it odd you do not have any tools if you are opening up a bike shop? But what do I know?

    May I make a quick suggestion from a shade-tree auto mechanic.
    Get a complete set of cheap tools, then replace the ones that wear out with quality tools.
    The ones that wear out will be the ones you use most anyways.

    As for cheaper tools, try Pedro's or Filzer
    I think Filzer tools are unique to the Moutain Equipment Coop, so they're priced in Canadian dollars, its like a 25% discount on the list price.

    Is there any objective evidence that Park Tools are of superior quality?

    You might call this place, they recently closed. They were selling off *everything* (hangers, shelves...) except their bike shop tools. Might have wanted to keep them, or might have wanted to sell them in a different way. Worth a call or email anyway.

    I'll second Filzer - I'm fairly impressed. They're available on Amazon.com.
