Minimum Tool List to Perform All Bicycle Maintenance

I am trying to put together a tool list that contains everything needed for someone who kind of knows his way around a bike to do all servicing. Basically, I don’t ever want to have to go to a bike shop for servicing. I have done basic things such as gear indexing and re-cabling, but I want to be able to do more. (I am talking replacing bottom bracket, wheel truing, etc.) Currently, I am limited by my equipment. I believe this is an endeavor that will interest others in the community.

Can you guys help me put this together? Specific brand/model recommendations are welcome.

List So Far

  • pedal spanner :white_check_mark:

  • cable cutters :white_check_mark:

  • spoke nipple :x:

  • wheel truing stand :x:

  • tire leavers :white_check_mark:

  • track pump :white_check_mark:

Thanks for your time. Feel free to recommend any additions or subtractions.

If you guys want to know what specific tools I have, I can share those as well.
