MTB Maintenance Tool list on CRC ?


Ysterman

Recommended Posts

Was wondering if there is a hubber not on his bike for whatever reason, either hating his job or not in the mood for any work today - that will be so kind as to put together a CRC list of all essential tools so that I can complete my CRC order :D

 

Pretty Please - It's a dual sus MTB with mostly Shimano XT & Fox

 

Not looking for most expensive stuff - just the tools that will do the job, pretty much overhaul my MTB

Buy them from Mr Bornman - you will only get what you need and what works - he may even teach you to use them!

Definitely going to do a course with him - I have to fill up a CRC order for free shipping, so want to buy tools instead of other gadgets ...

A quick scan on CRC reveals a nice little package...

Jy kan maar by my en luke ook leen ou yster, tools is maar duur storie, veral as jy alles so op een slag wil koop. Ek het meeste van die wat jy nodig het om n "overall" mee te doen en soos hulle se....I know where you live ;)

 

As ek jy was kry ek n torque wrench...seker die duurste van die lot maar n baie oulike tool.

Like the toolbox idea, very neat

 

That is a good price. You will just need some cone spanners with it.

I made my own chain wip. A piece of old chain and a piese of steel. Took about 10 mins to make and works like a charm!

cool man....daai toolbox op crc lyk of al die "essentials" het maar watch net vir die BB hollowtech tool, van hulle is krap die BB nogals as hy gly. Shimano maak so socket wat mooi om hom pas wat glad nie kan gly nie maar ook weer dis n mountain bike en hy moet n paar krappe op om he :huh:

 

Maar vir daai prys is dit nogals n bargain, as jy dit ook kan bekostig....defnitief n torque wrench. Jammer om te hoor jy trek....moet seker die padwerke wees ;)

I wanted to service my rear hub yesterday and didnt have cone spanners, so I took out 2 old spanners in the right size, stuck them against a grinder for a good few minutes and voila! :D

Just keep the import duty in mind when ordering tools from CRC.... Else you might get an unsuspected surprise come delivery! ;)

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this shipment slip past customs without any hassles ... this is a good mix of parts, tools, clothes & electronics ...

 

Otherwise I will be getting a beeeeg surprise :huh:
