Cyclo ‘Y’ Wrench Ball Ended Allen keys 4,5 and 6mm AND Cyclo ‘Y’ Wrench Allen keys 2, 2.5 and 3mm

 

After performing a full brake rebuild and bleed I’ve now had a chance to use these in anger.

Pro’s: Well made with nice feel soft grip area. The hex dimensions are accurate with very little play when in use. I like the stacking ability which keeps them nicely together in my tool box.

Con’s: The Y shape actually made access to some of the Allen screws difficult. There is one on the top of my forks for the remote lock out (I was replacing the cable outer) where the Y was hitting the head tube meaning I couldn’t get a full rotation of the tool. The same for the Allen bolt on the underside of the saddle on the seat post.

Over all they are a “nice to have” tool which would look very nice on a shadow board, but I naturally kept returning to my standard L shaped keys as they performed the same job as well, and sometimes better when access is tight.
