My Park Tool shopping list is here

ParkTool 50 yearsAfter quite a while poring over and reviewing the list more than a couple of times. Here is my Park Tool shopping list in order of priority. I find that with tools 20% of the tools you own you will use 80% of the time. So it may take me 10 years to purchase what is on the list and the priority may change if I move in a particular direction with my tinkering in bikes. I have left a lot of tools that park makes off the list because I already own them or will never use them. If I was to buy today this is the order I would buy in. This list is long so enjoy reading it. I will let you know each time I get something off the list.
