Feedback Sports is an American company that’s quite new to the tool-making business but is well known for individuals working on bikes. The company is known for its popular work stands that have held multiple bikes for repair over the years, but their branded hand tools are about a year old. They have made a reputation in the cycling world by producing innovative bike stands and accessories for mountain and road bikes.
Arranging a tool kit for a trip or a long weekend of racing might seem like a hassle when it comes to figuring out which tools are worth taking along and what stays behind. To make things easier, Feedback Sports have brought out their Team Edition Tool Kit, which contains nineteen tools that are able to perform up to 25 functions, and they are all packed in a light zip-up carrying case.
The tools contained in the case are extensive; they include two Philips and one flathead screwdriver, three 3-way wrenches for Allen and hex head bolts, a rotor truing tool, 8 mm and 10 mm L-shaped wrenches, a cassette lockring tool, a chain tool, and cassette pliers. However, that’s not all the tools it contains; it also comes with a bottom bracket tool, a spoke wrench, two tire levers, dental pick, crank arm cap tool, cable cutters, a pedal wrench, and a valve core tool. The entire package costs $249.99; you save $18 this way instead of buying each tool individually.
The tools all have high quality; the handles of the screwdrivers and L-wrenches have a knurled portion that prevents the tool from slipping out of your hand. The 3 way wrenches come with a rubberized portion that makes them ergonomically comfortable to handle. The cable cutter is incredibly strong, so they’re able to make clean cuts. The cassette plier and tool combo makes swapping cassettes easy. The case is arranged in a way that allows you to see if any tool isn’t in place; that way, it is easier to keep track of your tools. The case can also be attached to a bike stand by joining the two plastic rods kept at the center of the case to hold it open.
- Cassette Pliers: This gadget makes it incredibly easy to swap out cassettes. They are so much easier to use than a chain whip.
- Three-Way Wrenches: This is a well-known tool for mechanics, the nine Allen and torque keys are the workhorses for most bike projects. They offer precision and push you to keep working until every bolt is in place.
- Steel Core Tire Levers: Tese tools are quite stiff in the middle but have flexible outers, they are wonderful in the fight against failing rubber. These levers have proven to be indestructible, but handy enough o do their job without marring the carbon hoops. For storage, they snap together, which makes them convenient, but they are also large enough to fit snuggly in your hand and offer more control when dealing with a difficult tire.
- Dual Sided Pick: If you have ever taken apart a suspension to service the oil or replace the seals, then you would know the importance of a good pick. What makes these tool better than its counterparts is the fact that it comes with dual-sided function and its ergonomic handle. It is easier to flip the tool over instead of putting a pick down to pick up another.
Each tool in the tool kit are all high quality products that serve for long periods; they come with multiple functions, which makes them versatile. The case is made from a durable material that survives almost any condition.
