1) does anyone sell or distribute Cyclus tools in the US?

i'm looking for a quality bearing press to replace my Home Depot concocktion. Park's is $$$, and yeah, i can't afford that, but if i'm doing stuff to other folks' bikes, i don't want them to question anything. not the greatest of justifications, but eh.

2) Park's tensionmeter; quality/accuracy, yea or nay?

3) anyone have experience with Joe Young's wheels?

i've been going and for with him on a wheelset for the ride and would like to know if his resume speaks for itself. i just built up my first wheel (for a trials bike) and after a couple weeks, it's still going strong (true-ness). kinda made me want to build up my own wheels for the ride, but i feel i lack the experience and knowledge to build up a wheel to hold up to that kind of abuse.

--edit--

oh yeah, CH Ellis cases. can anyone with experience pass along some info? i just looking for opinions, really. friend has one and i love it. seriously considering one to take with me this summer, so i can have my tools.

Try these people for Cyclus

I bought mine (live in the UK) when it was about $50 USD, excluding VAT. Functionally, works as well as the Park.

Bad news is that the exchange rate's going against you in the worst way at this point in time.

This company's located next to United Bicycle Institute. Likely they should be able to hook you up.

For a good look at bike tools, download this pdf file from the Ceeway site in the UK. It's big so I hope you have broadband.

I've bought stuff from them and they're first rate.

I can't help you on the other questions. Built plenty of wheels and never used a tensionmeter. I've heard good things about Young but again, no personal experience.
