Buying a 2nd for a buddy
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
If you are riding fixed (or single speed, but coasting is a waste!..) this tool is worth its weight in gold.
Firstly, it is a superb lock ring tool. From new bike assembly to cog changes this thing performs every bit as good as the "park tool."
15mm wrench is as good as my craftsman socket set. The steel on this thing is very high quality.
This thing is going to outlast my current steel frame and probably four more frames after that, if you break one, chances are that you died in the process.
I've owned my current one for 5 yrs now and its still looks nearly brand new. Bought another for a riding buddy. I ride a lot, and this thing is every bit as necessary as an air pump to single speed riders.
