So basically i bought a hardtail frame and all the components I need to build my first proper custom bike so now comes the question of tools.
I have all the basics, Allen keys, spanners, screwdrivers etc. but nothing specialist like chain tool, cassette tool etc.
I bought the frame with headset, fork and bb already installed.
I have seen a few 'starter' bike tool kits for about £40-65. The bulk of it seems to be basics which I already have but when I look at the price of individual tools it soon adds up to be more than the cost of an off the shelf kit.
So, any advice on what the minimum level of tools would be to build and regularly maintain my new bike? Or anyone know of any tool kits which are reasonably priced and contain all the basic necessary tools?
