Cheap Tool Kit Amateur Bicycle Mechanic

Last Updated on February 7, 2021 by FAB Jim The Cyclist

You have decided you want to be able to work on your own bike, but now you need some tools.  There are a lot of bike specific tools that you likely do not own.  Having the right tools really helps with any repairs, it’s a good idea to start with a basic tool kit.  Then you will have most of the tools you will need and can add more later.  This is how I started and have no regrets.  The kit I bought seems to no longer be available so I’m just going to recommend one on Amazon that looks to be very similar:

This 23 piece tool kit includes lots of good, bike specific tools you will certainly need:


Bottom Bracket wrench  

Chain ring nut wrench  

Hex key wrench set 2/2. 5/3/4/5/6mm

T20/T25/T30 wrench 

3mm flat screwdriver 

5mm flat screwdriver/Phillips screwdriver

Chain rivet extractor 

15mm Pedal wrench 

8mm hex key wrench/1/2″Adaptor

Cartridge B. B. tool 

Lock ring remover 

Spoke wrench 3.2/3.3/3.5/4.0mm

Crank cap wrench 

Metal tire lever set, 2pcs 

Hub spanner13/14/15/16/17/18mm,3pcs

Crank puller 

Multipurpose master link tool

Patch kit 

Freewheel turner and lock ring wrench

It actually has a few tools I wish had come with mine.  From the pictures it looks like many of the same individual tools I have, so the quality should be ok.
