    Suntour Cassette

    I have a Specialized Rockcomp and it has the original XCD hubs. Can somebody tell me what cassette removal tool I need?

    Dual chain whips. The last cog threads on, holding the rest in place.

    I have an older Bianchi Axis with a Suntour XCD freewheel. The cassette has a wobble. It still workd okay but it can be wiggled. The guy at the LBS took it apart and said it was worn. I wished that I had paid more attention. Is the possilbly a bearing tha tcan be replaced or am I in for a new freewheel.

    The leg bone is connected to the foot bone The foot bone is connected to the toe bone. You wouldn't give a newbie a hard time would you? The cassette wiggles.

    I'm sorry, usually a cassette is associated with a freehub. If the cassette is wiggling, maybe you need a new freehub, which is hard to get for Suntour, that's why I asked. If the freewheel is going bad, that's easier to replace compared to a Suntour freehub.

    All threads shown are right hand, OTOH, you'll need the correct tools to remove either a freewheel or cassette.
