I have used these mats few months to protect the floor, I had it all over the workspace.
most of the wear is where I was standing and doing drivetrain maintenance.
These mats are basically just very thin tarpaulin, cut to size with Muc off branding on them
I can’t recommend these as a long term solution, as they wear out way too fast, I suggest getting some protective floor pads like Seth’s bike hacks did.
Keep it away from sunlight!!!, the mat bent upwards, and made it almost useless, to fix this you have to put your heaviest tools on it and let it lay in the sunlight for a long time.
For some reason, there was red discolouration in the white park tool logo.
I noticed something similar on my 100% Race Craft goggles,the same red color on my on the top on the 100% logo, as I have a the helmet is white there and has no red in it there should not be any color transfer, I don’t know why this happen.
I have not tried other mats, but So far I like this one, But keep it away from the direct sunlight.
As the writing on the syringes states it’s one use only, so they will wear out after few uses.
Which I think is a shame, because I hate to buy an endless supply of things that could be made stronger so I can use it for a long time.
I read a lot of people use medical syringes for bleeding their brakes.
The only reason I purchased it was because I had to have something fast.
This is a very flimsy assortment box, & am ran out of space in them.
Overpriced, low quality, easelywhichI can’t recommend this product at all.
the plastic hinges are all different, one falls off if I try to close the box open the case.
There is risk of the plastic hinges falling off, but there is even greater chance of the hinges falling off if you drop the box.the transparent cover, does not cover/close properly, which leaves a gap so tiny parts can fall out.
the design wastes space which could be used to store something in, strange shapes which are silly, this looks m ore like a kids toy that a proper assortment box for professionals.
One more thing I hate about this box is that you can’t stack them, if I put one on top of the another one it moves in all directions, and there is no way to secure them together.
I have an adjustable wrench and a screwdriver from Ironside, and they worked fine so far, but I have not tried other tools from Ironside.
I have 2 of these.
Even when I lubed the tyre with soap, and used the put on part of the lever but it I still struggled with the Maxxis High Roller, This is unavoidable because of the tightness of the tyre.
When taking off my Maxxis High Roller 2 tyres off my Bontrager duster wheels, I used one lever with a spoke hook to hold the tyre in place, and taken the ”remove” part of the lever under the tyre bead and lifted it, step by step did the same thing over and over to the tyre loosened, it worked quite well. But dragging/pushing/pulling the lever just does not work.
Super easy the lady said, The method this woman use does not work with Maxxis High Roller 2 on Bontrager Duster wheels, one of the issues is that the tyres are so tight, unlike the bike magazine have shown in their video
One of the best plastic tyre levers,that is for sure.
Its the only tyre lever that I could take off tight enduro/trail tyres with.
I have used Weldtite and Zefal lever before,the Zefal levers were way too thin and broke, Weldtite levers flex too much.
I but the perfect tyre lever must be made of alloy,with plastic tips to protect against scratching.will have to buy Metal levers next time,and have a handle that fits every hand, which Speedier Lever does not have.
A metal lever with replaceable plastic tips would be the best, in my opinion.

I have used this repair stand for few months.
Too many construction flaws, high price tag.
I cant really recommend it,the huge amount of play,which makes the bike hand weird, is a too big con, and no spare parts are offered, which is stupid.
but I recommend getting a high-quality,metal repair-stand, with weight plate.
but I need a bike-stand as fast as possible.
Keep handle bar ,wheel from turning:
instead of using Park Tool HBH-2
You can use my method.
This is my method:
Take 2 loops slide it on the handlebar, and tighten it, and you get this as result
take 2 turns around the seat tube or seatpost depending on wheat is possible on your bike.(but if the shoe lases or the frame is too slippery,you can do it on the seatpsot and use the clamp on the bikestand)
step 3: repeat step 1 on the other side.
You can use this knot for brake calliper aliment, just make the hole bigger and slide it over the brake lever and tighten:
Here are some good stuff i found:

This post will be updated with more stuff as I come up with something else or find something else
To be able to use it,you got to have the cable really long , which is not nice to have
I recommend using Slip-joint pliers ,which i do.
I absolutely recommend this this tool because it’s 4 tools in one.
