Park Tool?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

My Campy tools gather dust now😟 Pedal wrench / bottom bracket fixed cup wrench, headset/ bb lock ring wrench, crankarm bolt wrench, crankarm extractor, campy seatpost wrench. In short, many of the tools from back when I could take apart and put my bike together blindfolded, each served a purpose and the system was beautifully integrated. Some day I will have the time to get the “ bible “ on Ultegra Di2 and the tools.

I buy Park when I want something very specific, otherwise I go with a hardware store tool. The Park stuff is first rate and if there is something that needs to be done on a bike, Park will have the tool for it.
