Default Re: Tools. What is absolutely necessary?

Bicycle tool kit.

I have one from spin doctor with an assortment of metric hex bits, sockets and small ratchet. This set alone built most of my bike.

Digital calipers

Impact driver and rubber mallet

Case screws are stubborn and this prevents you from destroying them and having drill them out.

Tire levers

At least two, maybe more, because they break.

Spoke wrench

Bicycle pump

Keep the stand up at home and the hand pump on the bike

Patch kit

Quality cable cutters

Bicycle specific cutters are the best, I use Pedro brand cutters.

Dremel and cutting wheels, grinding and sanding bits

Voltage meter

Metric wrench set

Metric hex set small

Metric hex set long handle T


Zip ties

Screw drivers, both Phillips and Standard

Bench grinder

Bench vise

Needle nose pliers

Vise grips

Adjustable wrench, various sizes

Chain whip and cassette tool

Blue loctite

Yellow fuel resistant teflon tape

Rtv silicone, oil resistant

Epoxy putty
