so this guy said i needed this ^

when he says both metric and SAE does that mean i need a total of 8 combination wrenches? (4)10mm, (2)13mm, (2)14mm

or what?
I said (2) 10mm wrenches. ...The reason for (2) 10mm wrenches is when installing the drive (rag joint) sprocket, at least 2 wrenches are needed. Why a 13/14? a 13 can be used in place of 1/2" and a 14 can be used as a 9/16" both on the bike frame.

Why I recomend a torque wrench

The only thing amiss was a loose cylinder head, it was not torqued properly at all, that's OK because I ported it and trimmed gaskets anyway. I'd get into detail but I just made the coffee.
I would definitely order from Zoombicycles again

You might want a second 10mm for getting the drive sprocket
This is a joke, isn't it?
