Bike Tools – The Tools I Use To Repair/Update/Restore Bikes
I often get asked about my bike tools. People want to see them. Where do I get them. Can I recommend a set of bike tools. These are a lot of the tools that I use to repair, update, and restore bikes. It includes general purpose tools, vintage bicycle tools, homemade tools, etc.
Here are links to a lot of my favorite tools on Amazon:

👍 And please give my video a thumbs up 👍
всё очень понравилось, мы тоже пользуемся такими инструментами
any idea is this a bearing or break issue
I’m glad I kept coming back to this till I got to the end because my bottom bracket is crooked from the factory, obviously cross threaded and stuck. I can’t move the fix cup and it doesn’t have much meat to put a wrench on. I’ve had the bike for four years and wondered why the bearings will always getting loose
thanks for your tips, this is a million times better than taking courses at a vocational shool. great video.
you got two 17mm wrenches my dude

Very informative and useful! Thanks from Iceland!
Could u possibly show us how u store your tools. As most of my tools live in a small tool box.

you should do an update on this video. I think I need mainly specialized cassette and crankset and bottom bracket tools now.
Mr the Bike Guy, what’s a good beginner tool set? I’ve seen multiple out there but don’t want to get burned. Thank you
I bought cheap tools and waited 6weeks to get…first time using it broke..dont buy cheap…
Here’s a PDF of the manual for the Craftsman 44644 torque wrench that you use…nice info & tables. https://drive.google.com/open?id=14zHu_qHrMcsg5XDZY-6KUQ5r7WzCts8l
I managed to fit my pedals with a Kamasa spanner. I refitted with an adjustable as well…

Great videos. I’m switching careers and you’re helping me out a-lot. FWIW: we broke two Pedro’s tire levers on one tire yesterday at the shop.
Great set of tools interesting to see and very useful kit, some i have never seen before even in the past 40 years
Ill never understand derailleurs, it’s a conspiracy. I can do rolhoff even change cables on pinion twist grip. Forget me on wiring. Iam composites.
so this is for cars, motorbikes, plumbing and i think bicycles..
What is your obsession with using shifting spanners with a cheater bar? This is so WRONG You have to stop it
I went on amazon and added quite a few tools on my wish list. Thank you for the tips, your channel is a huge help!!
ajustable wrench have to be used in the right direction
You are absolutely right right to buy the best tools, like you i buy from boot sales, never have enough tools also duplicate a lot it makes them easier to find, yes long bit of pipe is very handy
I was a pro mechanic years ago…this is the most thorough presentation of tools i’ve ever seen, and I learned a few things. Wow…RJ The Bike Guy really has created a deep well of bike mechanic wisdom for us, thanks RJ.
9:25 *more torque
hello Rj I have a newer Schwin cruiser single speed it makes a rattle in the rear hub but if I move the pedals the slightest it will stop but as soon as freewheeling again it raddles
I used to break those Pedro tire levers all the time. I’ve learned a thing or two since then and so it’s been a while since I’ve broken one.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience!
I can’t find your seat tube diameter guages on my google search nor ebay. Can you tell me what brand they are and where I can purchase them RJ? I’m refering to the 3 plastic nesting tubes at the end of your video. Also a great video you can make is converting a bike computer without cadence to a cadence computer by having 2 computers on handlebars, 1 regular computer and 1 cadence computer (Since cadence function computers are rare, expensive and hard to find). Hook up wired pick up on downtube and magnet on left crankarm and set wheel circumference to 268cm for mph or 167cm for kph. Cadence computer will calculate current cadence rpm, max cadence, total trip time pedaling compared to other computer pedaling + coasting. The only issues are cadence reads example: 105rpm reads 10.5mph if set to 268cm circumference or 10.5kph if set to 167cm; the computer turns off below 25rpm for mph or 40 rpm for kph and mounting the magnet on crankarm. I cut a 3/4" sliver from white packing foam (wood will work too) and electrical taped the magnet to it around the crankarm. Surprisingly the magnet is ~5/8" away from pickup yet still it sends the signal. The "hack" is tricking computer to thinking the crankset is the wheel. You can even explain the math in your video. Formula: (To calculate 60mph): Mile= 5280ft/60sec =88ft.=1056"=2682cm. 2682cm/10=268.2cm "wheel circumference" for mph to = cadence. 268.2/1.61 = 167 for kph to = cadence. (Imaginary wheel "travels" 268.2cm each pedal revolution so 60 rpms cadence will read "6.0mph" and 90rpms reads "9.0mph"). Maybe you can explain the math better than me in your video if you choose to make it. (I use #2 inexpensive Cateye Velo 8 computers purchased from BikeNashbar for $15. I’m tall 6’3" and the wire to the pick up is long enough to reach the downtube even on my 64cm road bike with a 130mm stem set high, if you place the magnet close to pedal thread on left crankarm. This would be a REAL SLICK video to make if you choose to. Thank for your great videos. You’re an awesome instructor RJ. – Mike Greene.
let me know if you guys are interested in seeing my tool…
Good lord, your "crazy hands" are giving me motion sickness. I think I just suddenly developed epilepsy. Is there a slow hand version of this video?
Hope your back is healing well.
The value (price) of all the tools shown in this video combined is equal to… a motorbike?
I’ve just carried on watching your great video on bike tools, quite a long video, do you hang yours tools so they are easy find rather that in a draw or in several draws.
Bike Hand has a nice starter boxed set. Then buy the fancy tools as you need them as RJ said. Its nice to have duplicate wrenches for certain tasks.
RJ, what size torque wrench do you use? Is it 3/8" socket at 800 in/lb-90 Nm?

I have all of these.
RJ is a treasure trove of info…and he kindly shares all…cool…..and THANKS RJ THE BIKE GUY
Tip. The BT2 cable puller also works as a great zip tie tool.
This is awesome 😎. My grandfather use to be in the Tour de France 🇫🇷 back in the older days. Have the right tools when you need them is a smart way to be prepared in case you run into a problem on the road or back roads
A Park tools addiction is as expensive as a snapon tools addiction
Thank you for sharing this. So helpful as I work on bikes and think – hmmmm – what do I need now to do this?????
I can’t find most of these tools in my country. The bike stores don’t sell them because they want you to spend money every time you need something fixed, although you can borrow simple wrenches for a few minutes if you just have to tighten something in a hurry.
Buying the tools online costs a fortune considering shipping and customs fees. I needed a cone wrench at all costs, so I bought a very thin wrench multi tool for $3 , I used a file and sandpaper to make it thin enough to fit the cones I had and it worked xD
Tool link is dead. too bad.

Six point is better than twelve points for bike. And twelve points craftman wrench is not good.
