    How Park Tools rolls

    Did anyone catch this ad from Park Tools, earlier this year?



    The only problem i had with it is that the table looks like a hairy arm or something.

    Nice concept. But I agree on the table looking like an old man's hairy arm. Kinda kills it.

    That's way too wide to be an arm...it's some old dudes hairy back!

    Only buy Park Tools. Fully guaranteed they replace whatever fails. My dog chewed up the tube to my blue Park floor pump, they sent me a new one. Gauge failed, new one sent. My Park Tool bike stand has not failed after years of service.

    Haha, that's one of the exact park tools that I can't stand. Spokeys are far better and easier to grab. park makes quality stuff, no doubt. In most cases, they are what you get, but there's a few areas where another maker has a much better tool. Shimano, Pedros, Ultimate Stands, Phil Wood, etc...All of these have some tools that are far superior to equivalent Park Tool. Again, not taking away from Park at all, most of their stuff IS good, but it's not the best in every category. If I had my own shop, it wouldn't be ALL Park for sure (after having worked in a shop and having access to ALL of the tools, Park and the equivalents).

    You could say this about any tool company.
