+5 to China V

A Bigthank you to China V for the extremely well done and helpful repost on your tool roll breakdown, especially the weight in grams of those kool Ashai wrenches. From the looks of your stable you haven't overlooked anything there either, wowee!

He charged like a buck and a half to ship it too.

His fanny pack is bad ass too if you 're of that persuasion.

I would be interested in getting a set of the Asahi lightweight wrenches also... If someone is putting together an import order and needs to get a certain quantity for either price pointing or shipping just let me know. They look very nice, might be worth a try.

I wonder how well they stack up against the Motion Pro Titanium wrenches. The problem with the Motion Pro's are that they are the the same combination size for each wrench, not two different sizes. So you would need twice the wrenches with the Motio Pro's. I would also like to know which ones might be stronger or more durable.

Does anyone have a set of the Motio Pro titanium wrenches that could possibly weigh them for us, so we could compare. It's still probably cheaper for the Asahi ones tho.

I picked up the metric version of this tool roll from Sears. Nicer than the tool kit that came with my R6 or FZ1. There is room to put other tools into it. The roll-up snaps closed and if you stuff a lot of items in it you probably can't get the snap to line up. Would have been better with a buckle strap closure.

I don't have an exact address for where I bought these, it was in the Sham Shui Po market. Take the MTR to Sham Shui Po and use exit C2. When you come out, you will be on Apliu St. There are several tool shops on that street, I don't remember which shop I purchased from.

Next time I go to HK, I will try to find them again.

Cheers!

ChinaV You Started It!!

Mr. ChinaV, you caused quite a sensation with those Asahai wrenches!
You've got all us Yanks in a tizzy about how to get ahold of them. Aparently there is also a mini set of them as well. Supposedly there is a Candian company which may be able to get them. For now we're putting a lot of responsibility on you! Maybe you can find an importer that is capable in sending them here to us. Meanwhile, your photos were great, you presentation teriffic, now just get us them wrenches....!!!!

I made my own to get it custom for the tools I carry:


But if I was going to do it over again I would have this guy:

do one for me. My sewing machine doesn't like sewing heavy stuff. I like it being white so I can find the hardware or small tools that are setting on it while I am working on the bike.

It packs so small that I think one would not have any difficulty carrying it around in example the jacket pockets.
