Is it any good, or are the tools just cheap crap? Looks like a good deal.
Looks fine to me for home usecory

I've accumulated the tools over several years as I've needed them, and some of mine are higher quality than the ones in the kit. For home use maintaining a bike or two, though, that looks fine to me.

Works fine. Had to replace the chain tool. Crapped out on me, but everything else works great.
It's all you need for most applications.E3

I used mine to remove the parts from my old frame and transplant them to a new frame. The one item it lacks that would have been useful is a cable cutter. Otherwise, it covers most everything else.

The tools don't seem to be of the highest quality, but unless you're using them hard every day, they ought to hold up well under normal use.
