The new tools

Here's a picture of the tools I purchased yesterday.

If I am still missing tools please let me know...


  1. Gday mate!

    Firstly, good luck with the build i think you will have a great time and learn a lot.
    Secondly, with regards to tools, you may find some specific bike tools may help make your job easier.

    For example, spoke tool, cassette remover, bottom bracket tool, tyre levers, maybe a brake bleed kit (depending on brand of hydro brakes you get) etc.

    You can pick up bike tool sets online very easily and reasonably cheap. i think you will find that a lot of the problems you will encounter can be fixed by using the right tools for the right job.

    Have fun with it all, looking forward to see the progress :)

    1. G'day mate!

      Cheers for the comment!

      I am looking for bike tools on several sites, such as ChainReactionCycles and Merlin. I found that the headpress tool is really expensive ($90-150). The rest ssh as the spoke tool, cassette remover bottom bracket tool, tyre levels are within my budget and will shop around for them.

      Had a user from one of the forums offer me a few second hand tools if I paid for shipping, so I'm just waiting for a reply from the user. (hopefully I get some bike specific tools out of it)

    2. Hi Padwell,

      I recently got more tools in the mail. They were given to me by member from Rotorburn. Do check out my latest update.



I would like to once again thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your comments.

I will reply you as soon as possible.
