There’s no reason to drop hundreds of dollars each year on tuneups. Keeping your ride in top shape is cheap and easy, if you have the right tools. We pulled together a bare bones toolbox for just this task, including a high-tech pump, a serious torque wrench, and, of course, the Big Blue Book of bicycle repair.
Lezyne Classic Pedal Rod
Every company makes a pedal wrench, but only Lezyne makes a wrench with a smooth wooden handle that feels good to hold and only gets better with time and pedal swaps. Shop quality, the Classic Pedal Rod has two 15mm offset wrench openings positioned for leverage and easy use. The stamped, CNC-machined, heat-treated head has a bonus integrated bottle opener for those evenings when a pedal swap isn't your only repair. $24, lezyne.com.
