Bike Tools: At Work Around The House

Bike Tools: At Work Around The House


Most city dwellers have limited tools at their disposal. But if you have a bike, chances are that you have a multi-tool or other common bike tools that could double as the ultimate house tools…


A nice set of hex keys is our #1 useful bike tool for both working on the bike and around the house. Don't bother with the short uncomfortable tools that come with Ikea furniture – bike tools are made to work at different angles and provide a lot more torque for saving your fingers. Also, don't bother trying to keep track of which Ikea tool goes with which piece of furniture because you'll always have the right size when you have hex keys. Our large adjustable wrench which we bought to adjust the bike's bottom bracket has also come in handy on more than one occasion around the house.


Do you use any tools around house that were designed for completely other uses?
