“It’s just like riding a bike,” they say. But just try telling this to any experienced cyclist to come unstuck via a dodgy pedal, unwieldy handlebars, miscalculated seat height, or, and you'll wince at this, the chain coming off.
Aiming to make these oily-fingered challenges somewhat easier to navigate is the Brooks England Toolkit MT21, armed with seven allen keys (2mm to 8m), three torx heads, flat head screwdriver, duel cross-headed screwdrivers, four spoke keys, chain tool, Brooks saddle spanner, and, naturally, a penknife.
In short, it packs an awful lot into a reassuringly compact kit. But while this might be the closest cycling has got to an old school Bond gadget, Brooks are best known for their world class saddle making. So it might be worth investing in one of those, too.
