    They do look nice but it’s a lot of money for a pair of Mole Grips.

    I know that price hikes are a daily occurrence in MTB world, but for £66 they could at least have supplied the tool with a nickel plated chain.

    the pedro vise thing is great, I got one for about £25. it is worth it for all of the knuckle skin I have saved. would I pay £45 for one? not sure

    I remember them being about £25 and always thought it would be good to get around to buying one.

    I saw a thing in one of the magazines where someone attached 2 bits of chain to the jaws of some molegrips by drilling little holes in the jaws and then putting the chain pieces on using a chain tool. not sure if I could be bothered with that level of bodge though

    A chain whip is one of the easiest tools to make!

    We’ve all got bits of old chain lying around and a chain-splitting tool (most cyclists have one – I guess). Then all you need is a length of Aluminium bar or Steel, both of which are available from B&Q (other DIY supermarkets are available) and a drill.

    Come on people – even £5.99 is expensive 😆

    My £5 oil-filter wrench works perfectly well, even on 10sp.

    A simple length of timber [2×2] is all you need
    Nail the chain to one end

    One very effective chain whip for FA cost

    My chain whip is an old chain in a vice.

    This Shimano chain checker strikes me a something less than a bargain too considering you can get an X Tools one for not far off £50 less!!
