What are the Best Bicycle Repair Kit Reviews?

When bike riding becomes a hobby, knowing how to perform some basic bike repairs is something you learn whether you like it or not. Of course, you can always rely on the tool and the experience of a good bike mechanic, but what happens when your bike collapses as you’re on the road? With no help in sight, you pull over, get off your bike seat… and what next? If only you knew how to fix a flat tire. Or at least had the tools to try. What happens when your brakes need fixing? Or your chain is dry and makes pedaling difficult? There are many problems that could occur, but the solution always starts with the same thing: a bike repair kit.

Most Common Types of Bike Problems

Have you ever wondered what are the most common problems that bike owners face?

  1. Snapped components are a very common problem with bikes. By regularly greasing the components with the correct agent, you can avoid such a problem.
  2. Wheels and tires can lead to all sorts of problems. For instance, tire pressure can leave you stranded if you don’t inflate them regularly to their required pressure.
  3. Lack of maintenance can lead to problems that can easily be avoided by taking measures such as lubricating and cleaning the components.
  4. Loose bolts may seem like a laughable problem, but you should check and tighten them once a month. If a bolt ever comes loose, you could end up having an accident.
  5. Lubricated chains are a must. When the chain runs dry, it will end up being damaged, but it could also damage the cassette.

Truth be told, many of these problems can be avoided with a little knowledge, a handful of tools and regular maintenance. That being said, it is important to always have a repair kit at hand, or at least at home. There’s no shame in taking your little companion to a bike repair shop, but if it’s something that you could easily fix yourself, why bother? Sometimes, all it takes is tightening a couple of bolts, cleaning the bike, lubricating it and spraying it, inflating some tires and that’s about it. A good bike tool kit comes in handy. You know what they say: it’s better to be safe than sorry, right?

The Top 5 Best Bicycle Repair Kit Reviews

WOTOW Bicycle Mechanic Repair Tool Kit

  • Dimensions: 3.9 x 1.2 x 2 inches
  • Weight: 8.5 ounces
  • Tools included: Allen keys, socket hex wrench, Phillips/slotted screwdrivers, spoke wrench, hex key wrench, solid wrench, rocket extension rod, 3 tire pry rods, 1 additional 4 mm Allen wrench, for tightening/loosening the tool kit’s hinges

The first item on today’s list is a 16-in-1 multi tool created by WOTOW that promises to aid you whenever you’re experiencing bike problems. The 2 included tire pry tools are made of plastic, while the kit itself is made of metal. While the metal seems sturdy enough, the Allen keys are very thin and will surely collapse under heavy pressure. The additional Allen key that comes together with the multi tool is for tightening and loosening the screw that holds the tools together, which makes it easier for users to unfold the kit. We do like the intention behind this idea, but unfortunately, there is no place to store that additional Allen key. That means that you’ll have to carry it around in your pocket, bag or whatever. 

While this is a customer favorite, the WOTOW 16-in-1 multi tool is good only for some basic repairs. The multi tool contains the following: Allen keys (2, 2.5m 3, 4, 5 and 6 mm), a spoke wrench, a socket hex wrench (8, 9, 10 mm), a hex key wrench (2, 2.5m 3, 4, 5 and 6 mm), a solid wrench (8, 10 and 15 mm), a Phillips plus a slotted screwdriver and 3 tire pry rods. The kit is incomplete to cover all sorts of problems, like fixing a flat tire, for instance. It’s good for whenever some bolts or screws may come loose, but that’s about it. The fact that it comes with 3 tire pry tools is pretty confusing, since you don’t have an emergency patch kit to fix tire punctures, nor is there any hand pump included in the set.

Pros

  • 3 tire pry tools included.
  • Multi tool is made of metal.

Cons

  • No place to store the additional Allen key.
  • Allen keys are way too thin (about 1 mm) and will cave under pressure.
  • Not suitable for all kinds of bike repairs.

DAWAY A32 Bike Repair Tool

  • Dimensions: 3.5 x 4.8 x 1.9 inches
  • Weight: 10 ounces
  • Tools included: Allen wrenches, socket spanner, Phillips & slot type screwdrivers, spoke wrench, sleeve extension rod, flat wrench, rubber glue, metal rasp, 5 cold patches, 2 plastic tire levers.

The DAWAY A32 multi tool packs seems to be a little more complete compared to the WOTOW we previously described. When you order the A32, you will receive a pretty cool black tools bag that can hold the multi tool itself, as well as the other accessories that are delivered with it. The multi tool contains a Phillips and a slot-style screwdriver, a spoke wrench, a sleeve extension rod, a flat wrench (8, 10 and 15 mm), a socket spanner (8, 9 and 10 mm) and the forever-present Allen wrenches (2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5 and 6 mm). The tools are mainly made of carbon steel and ABS and they can also be used whenever you have household repair to make. 

Aside from the multi tool and the black bag we already mentioned, there are other goodies delivered with the A32. You will also get 2 tire levers, 5 different cold patches for tire fixing (one big, 2 medium oval ones and 2 round ones), as well as some rubber glue and a metal rasp. Quite a wide variety of bike tools. The black bag is definitely an upgrade, as it comes with a vertical strap sewn on its bag. Judging by the looks of it, it seems that it goes on the biker’s belt and can’t be attached to the bike’s seat in any way.  That could be quite inconvenient when cycling, as the bag might get in the way and cause discomfort. Plus, you might sometimes forget to take it with you altogether.

Pros

  • Comes with a black bag that fits all the tools.
  • Additional tools included, like the metal rasp, cold tire patches and tire levers.

Cons

  • Bag strap only fit on the biker’s belt, may cause discomfort.
  • No instruction included.
  • Glue is weak.

Bikehand Bicycle Repair Tool Kit

  • Dimensions: N/A
  • Weight: 5.6 pounds
  • Tools included: patch kit, hex key wrench, T25, cartridge BB tool, spoke wrench, crank puller, lockring remover, hub core spanner, bottom bracket wrench, freewheel turner, pedal wrench, tire lever, chainring nut wrench, dust cap wrench, Phillips screwdriver, flat screwdriver, chain rivet extractor.

The Bikehand repair kit isn’t exactly your most portable option, but it seems to bring quite a wide array of tools to the table considering that it isn’t that expensive. It’s not as cheap as a multi tool, but most large stay-at-home repair kits aren’t. So what’s inside the carrying case that includes a convenient handle, for better maneuvering? There is a total of 18 tools, as follows: a hex wrench key (2 to 6 mm), a patch kit, a T25 Torx, a flat screwdriver (3 mm), a cartridge BB tool, a spoke wrench, a crank puller, a lockring remover, 2 hub core spanners (13, 14, 15 and 16 mm), a bottom bracket wrench and a pedal wrench, a freewheel turner, one hex key wrench (8 mm), a tire lever, a chainring nut wrench, a dust cap wrench, a Phillips screwdriver, a flat screwdriver (5 mm) and a chain rivet extractor. 

The tools seem to be pretty sturdy and should be able to resist torque successfully. Overall, you are getting quite some decent tools considering the price of the kit. However, keep in mind that this is a starter kit, so if you’re into more complex bike repairs, you will have to look for another product.

Pros

  • Convenient storage case with slots for all the tools.
  • Very good price considering the number and quality of the tools.

Cons

  • Good kit, but not complete, some basic tools missing.
  • Allen keys are placed behind other tools.

Sahoo Bike Repair Kit

  • Dimensions: 9.6 x 5.5 x 1.8 inches
  • Weight: 1 pound
  • Tools included: straight + Phillips + T25 screwdrivers, Allen wrenches, socket wrench, chain rivet extractor, mini bike pump, tire pry tools, patches, metal rasp

Straight out of the bag, it seems that this kit is most useful for repairing flat or punctured bike tires. So, if you ever find yourself stranded on the side of the road and need help in fixing a tire, the Sahoo should have just about every tool in the book to keep you covered. The 1 pounds of total weight doesn’t make it the most compact and lightweight kit out there, but once we get to what’s inside, you’ll begin to understand where the weight comes from. All the tools and accessories are packed inside a black bag. The very first item that stands out is the 14-in-1 multi tool that features the following: Allen wrenches (from 2 to 8 mm), 3 screwdrivers (one straight, one Phillips and one T25), a socket wrench and a chain rivet extractor. 

Aside from the multi tool, the package also contains a mini bike pump, which is an additional tool that we’d love to see in every portable bike repair kit. The pump features a T-handle, for better grip, has a maximum pressure of 100 PSI, it’s suitable only for Schrader valves, it’s made of ABS plastic and, when collapsed, measures about 20 cm in length. It’s not the most powerful mini bike pump out there, but when you have to fix a flat tire fast, it won’t matter that much as long as it gets the job done and helps you get to your destination. Since this is a tire repair kit mostly, there are also 9 cold patches included (3 of them measure 25 mm and are round, another 3 measure 34 mm and they are also round, while the last 3 measure 33 x 50 mm and they are oval). Sadly, the kit lacks glue, so you will have to purchase that separately, since the patches are not glueless.

Pros

  • Convenient storage bag for all the items.
  • Contains (almost) everything you need to fix a flat tire.
  • Bike mini pump included.

Cons

  • Doesn’t include a glue tube.
  • Pump is only suitable with Schrader valves.

YOUYOUTE Bike Repair Kit

  • Dimensions: N/A
  • Weight: 1 pound
  • Tools included: Allen wrenches (2 to 6 mm), spoke wrench, inner hex spanner (2 to 6 mm), flat wrench (8, 10 and 15 mm), Phillips + slotted screwdriver, socket extension rod, socket wrench (8, 9 and 10 mm), mini bike pump, needle inflation valve, metal rasp, glueless patches, 3 tire pry bars.

There’s something about the YOUYOUTE bike repair kit that inspires confidence and makes us want to recommend it to all out readers. Maybe it’s because it’s the most complete tire repair kit we’ve seen so far. But you don’t have to take our word for it, let’s just examine the components and see if it all checks out. First of all, the tools are all conveniently encased in a slim and portable bike bag. The bag can be hanged on your bike frame, out of the way, so it won’t bother you when you’re cycling. The 16-in-1 multi tool contains the following: 6 Allen wrenches (2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5 and 6 mm), a spoke wrench and a flat wrench (8, 10 and 15 mm), an inner hex spanner (2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5 and 6 mm), a Phillips and a slot type screwdriver and a socket wrench (8, 9 and 10 mm). 

The mini bike pump is definitely an item that we need on all portable bike repair kits. Since it’s compatible with both Presta and Schrader valves, it’s already better compared to the one from the Sahoo kit. It can reach a maximum pressure of 120 PSI, which is another improvement compared to the max 100 PSI on the Sahoo. Its super lightweight of only 2.89 ounces makes it easy to handle the pump. When folded, the pump is as short as 7.3 inches, making it one of the most compact items of its kind. When expanded, the pump reaches a total length of 11 inches. The pump is made from a combination of alloy steel and ABS plastic, which is pretty expected from a bike mini pump.

The pack also contains a metal rasp and 3 tire levers that are durable and rigid enough to make tire removal easier. The non-slip pattern should make it easy to handle the levers, but it also helps attach the 3 pieces together, for easier carrying. The glueless puncture repair kit is a definite winner, as it eliminates the need to purchase a tube of glue. All you have to do it patch the tire and then inflate it and you should be good to go.

Pros

  • Compact design.
  • Bike bag for tools included.
  • Includes a mini bike pump.
  • Pump is suitable with both Presta and Schrader valves.

Cons

  • Velcro straps feel cheap.
  • Multi tool hard to use in tight spaces.

The Bottom Line


Choosing the best bike repair kit really depends on the type of repairs you’re planning to make and how much of a handy-person you are. We have to be completely honest and tell you that none of the repair kits we’ve reviewed today are suitable for absolutely every type of bike-related problem. In fact, the more complete a bike repair kit is, the more hundreds of dollars it’s going to cost. No matter which of the kits above you decide to purchase, there are high chances of you buying some additional tools to cover all your needs. However, if we were to judge in terms of how a kit can completely help you solve one specific tire problem, the YOUYUTE is our winner.

The multi tool could be a useful mate when you need to perform other types of repairs as well, but for flat tires, it has pretty much everything you need. You have the tools, the glueless patches, the tire levers and the bike pump which, I have to say, is pretty surprising compared to the overall price of the kit. It can reach a maximum pressure of 120 PSI, which is the standard expectation for a pump of its kind. The compatibility with both Presta and Schrader valves was a feature that we kind of underestimated until today and we just assumed that all mini pumps are decent enough to be compatible with these most common types of valves. When noticing that the Sahoo pump is only suitable for Schrader bikes, we began to appreciate the YOUYOUTE pump even more.
