15 Essential Triathlon Tools
If you have these 15 in your home shop, you’ll be able to fix anything
10. Allen Keys
Of the hand tools that are a necessity for every cyclist, first and most obvious are these. Bicycle-specific toolmakers make sets, but quality metric keys from a hardware store work fine.
Bondhus (9-key set, £7.57, rowlandtools.co.uk) is a popular brand, known for its often-copied ball-shaped tip, which allows you to easily spin bolts from an awkward angle. Get the following sizes: 1.5-, 2-, 2.5-, 3-, 4-, 5-, 6-, 8- and 10mm. These will work with tiny setscrews on suspension-fork adjuster knobs, crankarm fixing bolts and everything else.
