Cyclo ‘Y’ Wrench Ball Ended Allen keys 4,5 and 6mm AND Cyclo ‘Y’ Wrench Allen keys 2, 2.5 and 3mm
Well, after opening my package, i first thought i had some newfangled diving rods, but no, they turned out to be Cyclo's Y Allen keys, and i got a little excited!
Firstly, they look good in a simple black and grey colour scheme with the main body being grey and they grips/softer bits black. I can see these holding up for a good few years due to the sturdyness of the body and strength of the keys.
My samples were standard 2, 2.5 and 3 mm and 4,5,6 mm ball ended, and they are ace. They fit in your hand perfectly, enabling a lot of torque, possibly too much lol, are comfortable to hold and use as small weapons and they also clip together, so you should never lose them, and if you had enough, maybe make a tower out of them all!
Clearance wasn't an issue as the body is about 2 inches from the useable end of the key, but they could foul some frames if you have fiddly bolts like some do.
The only downside i have come across so far is the fact that they wont ever be taken on the trail with me simply due to the size/shape of them. They would be too bulky in your pocket, but could be ok in your camel back i guess, but i would always fear them puncturing something if you ever came off.
They are a very well made tool which wouldn't look out of place in a true riders bike box, and i would definitely recommend these, and i would buy the next size up so i have all the common sizes.
