Time to start buying some tools, I've loads of mechanics tools but hardly any cycle specific ones. Looking at locking ring sockets but might seem like a daft question but are shimano and sram the same? With that I'll get chain wear checker, what other tools should I be looking at and any particular make?
Thanks for any suggestions.

Along with a decent work stand and Allen key set its about all you'll need for 95% of things.

Both will work with that tool.

It's the campagnolo ones that differ.
