No Tool to install a headset?


I hate it when supposedly bike-specific tools have such useless sizes just to boost their tool count.

1/16" Allen, 5.5 & 7mm box for a bike?
All you need is Allen 3,4,5,6 & Box 8,9,10.
Also, I can't imagine how well a 2-pointed "Allen" wrench will work or for how long.

5.5mm and 7mm fit M3 and M4 metric bolts respectively. You may find these on Shimano gear. I cannot say for certain because I run Campagnolo.
But I can see an M4 being useful in Europe.
