Wera Bicycle Tools - April 28, 2021, 6:34 a.m.

My brother-in-law gifted me a couple of Wera kits. One includes a Zyklop ratchet with an articulating head (Zyklop speed ratchet), as well as a second kit with a small T-handle and a bit driver. I can't tell you how much I adore that speed ratchet. I use it more than any other tool I own, whether on the bike, building Ikea furniture, or odd jobs around the house. I don't have to pay for many tools, but this is one I would shell out my own money for!

Plain Parts - Compelling Sentiments - Oct. 18, 2020, 4:17 p.m.

For me it's my trusty set of Shimano M520's. They've done many thousands of KM's, and graced many bikes. From my top shelf XC race bike, to my cheap and cheerful fat bike, to a spin bike sitting in my basement. They've gotten me through gruelling stage races, Ontario cup races, and too many fun rides with friends to count. They're not light, they're not pretty (certainly not anymore), but I have no desire, or need, to replace them. I don't have a single other component that I will hang on to long after it's useful life because of the adventures we've been on together.
