Posted on 18th, August 2012 about Cone Spanners

I've bought quite a few tools from Superstar now, and always been impressed with both the quality and the price. The 15mm spanner I ordered arrived with the usual Superstar next-day delivery, and once again I wasn't disappointed. I've made do with a pair of Elite multi-fit double ended cone spanners until now, but having just completed a pro-level cycle mechanics course, I can tell you that, for those doing a lot of hub work, the comfortable grip and extra length of these spanners is well worth paying for. I have a couple of suggestions for improvements: 1. The hanging hole could be a bit larger - a lot of louvre panel hooks won't fit through it. 2. Superstar should make the full range of cone spanners available as a set, preferably in a neat tool roll or wallet. I need to get a 13mm spanner now, for my road bike's front hub, but if there was a set available at the right price, I'd certainly consider investing in it.
