Top Bike Tools for Every Type of Cyclist
I look at cyclist in 3 different category for bike repair.
1. Just Riding Along - I don't want to deal with anything if I don't have to.
2. Reluctant but Willing - I'll fix it if I must but I'll take it to the shop for everything major.
3. The Home Mechanic - They love to understand everything about their bike and sometimes are more excited when they break something than they should be.
Depending on where you are in your life as a cyclist or as a human you may change where you are in these categories but I haven't met someone that isn't in one of them. Your needs for home maintenance or trailside repair are different but they build off of each other for certain. Below are my recommendations for each category, and I'll be making how-to content for each of these categories but really leaning towards category 1 or 2. If you want to be a home mechanic I highly recommend finding a Park Tool school or watching all their YouTube videos!
Below you'll find my recommendations, let me know if you have any questions!
