Revolution Tune Up Tool Kit
Revolution Tune Up Tool Kit
Customers who attend our Cycle Maintenance Classes are lent a Park AK37 Advanced Mechanics Tool Box for the day. Our trainee home mechanics quickly appreciate the benefits of fine tuning the bike with, literally, the tools of the trade, rather than, say, an old dumbbell spanner. Quite a few ask, ‘How much would it cost to buy this toolbox?’ Interest usually evaporates when they discover the answer. 270 quid. This got us thinking about creating our own toolbox. Here is the result - The Revolution Tune Up Toolkit - all the tools you should ever require to service your hubs, headset and wheels; and to fit or replace your chain, cogs, bottom bracket, cranks and pedals. We are not suggesting the Revolution Tune Up is quite up to Park’s standard. We would claim, however that you get around 80% of the tools for less than one sixth of the price.

|Getting what you pay for. Head of the 2mm snap off at the very first time I used it.|
|Good selection of tools for the price and the carry case they come in is great for keeping them safe, neat and handy. I have used most of the tools no problem except for the crank tool which broke - although it may have been a particularly stubborn crank (I ended up buying a more heavy duty crank tool with more leverage to do the job). In summary perfect for getting started on bike maintenance.|
|I bought this along with an EBC workstand a year ago, following a one day intensive maintenance course. It's a great set which would be more than enough for most home maintenance, for me it was a good starter set which I have enhanced by adding a few more specialist tools and bike specific tools. Only downside is the quality of the crank puller which broke first time but EBC replaced immediately.|
