The beginner MTB toolbox

So you’re new to mountain biking, but may or may not be new to tools. Either way, you want to get started maintaining your mountain bike. These are the very first tools you’ll need to perform the vast majority of repairs. As you get down to more advanced repairs like bleeding brakes, replacing bottom brackets, and pressing headsets, you’ll most certainly need additional tools. For your first year though, this should easily cover it.
Not including the floor pump, you can get a box and fill it for under $100.
Here are the tools featured in the video, with economical and premium options listed:
Floor Pump
Hex Wrenches (Allen Keys)
Three Way
Tire Levers
Shock Pump
Bike Multi Tool
General Multi Tool
Needle Nose Pliers
Adjustable Wrench
Torx Wrench (star shaped bolt)
Just T25
Full Set Eco
Full Set Pro
Torque Wrench (to tighten things to spec)
Chain tool

I am currently learning that the hard way as my brother is assembeling he's new bed and whole apartmen, and forgets to return it to me every single day. This has been goeing on for two weeks now, and I am stuck with a broken front deraileur and tree miss match hex wrenches that my dad bought in yugoslavia that inbeded themselfs in first time I used them.

    Removing plastic stickers from tool boxes is incredibly simple. Just soak the sticker with some turpentine, or mineral spirits for a few minutes. Then the sticker comes right off. And use a rag to simply wipe off the gummy residue. It's incredibly easy!

    Could you visit Virginia Keys again please? And maybe give Frenchy a call? He and the VKOC bike club have been working so hard on improving trails with the following but not limited to: jumps, wooden features, berms. Furthermore, they have added 2 new trails one with a drop and the other is all wood like highway to hell but you haven't seen that one yet. Also, they added massive jumps almost like a slopestyle section and a pump track and finished purple Haze that was the last time you were there for the first part. I hope you take this into consideration. P.S. you could get a good 1.2 million views on a video like that.

    When my son lent my tool to one of his friends I lost it. The friend will not lose any sleep if he loses or breaks or even if he leaves it outside and it rusts. Only when they buy a tool with their own money that they had to sweat to earn will they be careful with tools. It is not smart to borrow tools either especially power tools. YOU ASK WHY??? Well let's just say you borrow a tool and this person that you borrow the tool from doesn't necessarily take good care of his tools. Now as you are using this tool it breaks, now if you have a guilty conscience you will replace his tool. Let us anylize the scenario. You have to buy a tool to replace one that you broke, so you spent money and you have nothing to show for it. It would have been better you bought your own in the first place. ONE MORE THING , I DON'T LEND TOOLS ESPECIALLY POWER TOOLS!!!
