This months VeloNews has an article titled "Bike Shop in a Box" where they look into some pre-packaged tool boxes offered by Park, Pedros and Performance. The counterpoint at the article's end says it best and says what every ½assed savvy mechanic knows - that pre-packaged tool kits are not the way to go and "from the ground up" is better. That was written by John Barnett of the Institute fame.

After all, what IS the point of a full set of cone wrenches if you have King hubs? Only you know what parts are on your bike and therefore what tools you need.

Buy good tools though and they will last you a lifetime and hold their value. I just sold a couple of tools (Park) on e-bay that I've had for years and I got more for them than what I paid. I got just about present retail.
