Lightweight Wrench for the cassette lock ring
« on: June 15, 2009, 11:12:33 pm »
Anyone have a lead/idea on a minimalist lightweight 1-inch wrench for loosening the lock ring on the cassette? Just thinking ahead on the odd-chance of having to do a field repair on a broken spoke. So far I'm hauling my Craftsman 1" box wrench and plan to make it do double duty pounding tent stakes. (It's actually lighter than the Park equivalent.)

At the top of the first page above they have two tools designed to undo the lockring on a cassette using the chainstays and turning the cranks/wheels backwards.  I have the original Pamir Hypercracker mentioned on the page and it works perfectly well.

The other one (the Unior) works fine too
