Cheap Tool Kit Amateur Bicycle Mechanic

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

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.
