    Which one is the best to get?
    LBS has recomended a Park Tool one because its nicer and is built well. Not sure if i should go slightly cheaper for one.
    Going to try and do more maintence on the bike myself, and get some stuff for when i build the fixed up.

    Cheers:biggrin:

    If you can afford the Park one then get it. You know it'll work when you need it. It could be a false economy otherwise.

    For instance, I have the cheap Lidl (??) toolset and the chain tool broke at the first time of asking.

    Any type of cheap tools are a waste of money. If you save money on 'owt else, quality tools cost.

    Another vote for Park (i've not used the Topeak). I had a Pro one, it broke the first time I used it.
