Essential tool kits contain everything you need to make a quick bicycle repair or adjustment on the road or trail. These kits make a great in-expensive gift that will be used the entire year.
These multi-tool kits come in various setups depending on the types of repairs you want to make and how advanced you want to get. If you are unsure of what set is right for your cyclist we are happy to walk you through the various options. One suggestion would be to bring in a picture of the bicycle you want to service and we can help match the tools to the bike.
