I rock this kit and I think it's a great value for the money. (Although it certainly isn't as nice as "shop quality" tools)
• lots of "bike specific" tools with few "general use" tools that you likely already have kicking around the tool box (eg. screw drivers)
• Pretty cheap compared to "name brand" tool kits
• Pricepoint is a great comapny to deal with (quick shipping, strong customer service, etc.)
• The pin spanner was a POS that broke the first time I used it. (unless you do a lot of work on really old bikes this won't be an issue for you though since modern BB's don't use pin spanners)
• The lockring tool isn't as nice or user friendly as a more expensive stand-alone lockring tool but it has worked for me so far and I now have a Pedro's Trixie tool with a better lockring tool if I need it.
• Admittedly the fit and finish of all the tools is not on par with Pedros or Park. This doesn't really affect the tool use and for a home hobby mechanic it shouldn't make a big difference.
If you have any specific questions about this kit feel free to ask and I'll do my best to answer.
