No I wasn't being sarcastic at all. The best kits are really the ones you put together yourself. Then you have no random odds and sods in the bag you don't need.i don't think oldhippy was being sarky, as you maybe think.
I have a box full of tools but have never bought a kit.
I suppose you could buy a kit from the likes of Park or Unior but would be pricey.
Always have the idea that with cheaper/more modestly priced kits some bits never get used or you find better individual items after a while, or some tools fail. So the savings maybe not as great as might first appear.
You could check out X tools - many of their tools seem perfectly good.
Which jobs do you initially want to do on the brommie?
maybe buy tools for those and take your time collecting tools.
actually my favourite splitter is the one that comes on some of the Topeak Alien multitool. Has excellent leverage as you turn it with another bit of the tool. I pretty much always use it as a workshop tool, though wouldn't with the rest of the multitool apart from pre-ride checks.I'd agree with those above about buying as you go along. Always buy good quality though, although it's hard to quantify that. As a general rule price gives you quality, but no need to go over the top.
I prefer separate Allen keys and can recommend the Park tool chain splitter.
This is very true, but if you haven't got much to start with, a kit can be a good way to get started, particularly if it comes with a box with a place for everything.No I wasn't being sarcastic at all.
