    How do you take off the rear cassette?

    How would you do this with the minimum amount of tools?

    It really requires two tools, a cassette lock ring tool and a chain whip. I really can't think of an alternative for the lock ring tool. A length of old chain and some way to hold it will work as a chain whip.

    You really need three (3) tools:
    Chainwhip OR length of chain and locking pliers (this would make 4)

    Lockring tool

    Correct size ratchet or flex handle or adjustable pliers or adjustable wrench.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    One tool...this one. Just remember to pedal forward

    The chainwhip/adjustable wrench/remover tool is easier, however. The Stein is for emergency use.

    I didn't know that was back in the USA market.
