Special Purpose Tools
Work like a champ and Park Tools is always quality. Western Bike Works had a great price and with reward points was even better. WBW shopping has always been fast, pleasant and great prices-glad I found them!
I've always dreamed of having a full Park Tool set for all my bikes. I saw these wrenches on sale and thought I'd upgrade my toolbox. I was disappointed as I thought they would come crisp, like a snap-on set. They were not. The Paul's inside the ratchets had play and felt like they would skip. The action was not smooth. I've used them and everything seems to work. I'm cautious and slightly optimistic about longevity. Time will tell. The nice thing is if they do break Park Tool will replace them at no charge.
Purchased this tool, and I like it a lot. The tool feels great in my hand. It is an all in one tool, versus the old 2 tools I used to get things done. It has good weight feel to it... so basically, from using plastic tools to this tool is an upgrade for me. Hose is cut without effort. The design is simple when I need to change the blade... the clamp is easier and adjustable to use versus my old tool... overall great tool. Price... I believe it is over priced. Being said that, I am a true believer in you get what you pay for... in this instance, I believe I paid more than what I got... I will see with time though if this is true...
It's probably my umpteenth purchase from Western Bikeworks and my third or fourth park tool product. I also have the bike stand from park tools & everything I've bought here has been excellent and I highly recommend them to you plus the convenience of being able to pick it up the next day.
