Best Bike Tool Information & Reviews


Let me guess, you did a Google search on “Bike Repair Tools” and now you’re on information overload!  Take a breath, you’ve made it, and we’re going to help you through this.

Welcome to the CRANXX bike repair tools overview.  You’ve probably landed on this page because you have started getting into cycling and are now either looking for a cheap way to do regular maintenance on your bike or you are getting ready to start a shop and you need to find some of the best bike tools out there – or maybe something in between.  No matter how you ended up here, we’re here to help.  In the following pages you will find more information than you ever wanted on all the available bike tools currently on the market.

The options are almost limitless when it comes to quality, mid-grade and cheap, bike tools.  You can buy a starter bike tool kit for your house for less than $50 or you can buy a full professional tool kit – like the MK-234 from Park Tool that will only set you back $6300!  It’s almost enough to make your head spin.  We’re here to help you sort it out – we’ve prepared a great collection of how-to articles full of tips from professional mechanics, bike shop owners, and some of the best shadetree bike wrenches around.

The best place to start is at the beginning, with the Bike Repair Tool Buying Guide.  We’ve tried to demystify the whole bike tool buying process for you by compiling a list of some of the best tool sets for beginners, the essential tools that will need, the best every day carry bike multi-tools, we explain some of the specialty tools that are out there and review bike maintenance reference items (bike repair manuals, bike repair videos and even a few step-by-step how to articles).  Please let us know if you have any questions or if you have a tip that we might have missed.  Enjoy!




Stig’s Tip: If you are buying something that you will use everyday, don’t buy cheap!
