Packaged in sets of three, the Park Tool Tire Levers are made of glass-injected nylon to ensure long life and damage-free operation. The unique design of the TL-1 actually lifts the tire away from the rim and keeps the tube from being pinched.

"These cheap tyre levers do exactly what they're supposed to.
They perhaps could be a bit sturdier, but for the price you can't really grumble."
Pros: Great Value, Lightweight

"This pump feels weighty and high quality. This handle is comfortable and sturdy enough to go up to high psi without fearing you will snap or bend the cylinder.
The flexible hose prevents valve stems being bent or broken and the adaptor on the end provides a secure fit, preventing air from leaking out and ensuring all your effort is not wasted.
I easily managed to get my tyres up to 90psi without massive exertion and the flip out foot bar makes it easy to go higher."
Pros: Durable, High Quality

Excellent all purpose socks

"These socks proved to be an excellent purchase. They keep your feet dry when it rains, warm when it is cold and are comfortable and breathable enough to wear whatever the weather.
I previously tried some overshoes and didn't find them to work very well. With these socks I solved several problems in one go.
Very pleased. Recommended them to a friend and he was delighted with them too."
Pros: Comfortable, High Quality

Is this suitable for french valves common to most road bikes?

I have been told portable pumps tend to bend the valves on road bikes. Is there any truth to this?
Yes they can. However, this pump has a flexible hose between the pump and the adaptor. This prevents any movement your pumping effort being directly transferred to the valve.

Does the pump come with a mounting kit

It comes with a bracket that you can attach to the holes for a bottle holder with screws. It also comes with some cable ties so you can attach it to a different frame of the bike, but it could possible slide around.

It is possible to get a different bracket that allows the pump and a bottle cage to be attached to the same holes.
