Looking for Park tool

I want to change out the rear cassette of a 2005 Cannondale R700 instead of having the LBS do it for me. The Cassette is a SRAM PG-950 12-26. I am at work. Does anyone know the FR - ????

Thanks in advance

Should be the same cassette lockring tool that every Shimano HG setup uses. Go to the Parktool website - I can't imagine there would be more than one cassette lockring tool, but I think it is the FR5. All the other FR tools are freewheel tools for older style bikes without a freehub body. Since you have a newer 9s, you definitely have a freehub with a cassette.

You would also need a chain whip and an adjustable wrench or something to torque the tool down with.

Park FR5-G. You'll also need a chainwhip to remove the old cassette-

The FR-5G includes a guide pin which seems to keep the tool centered in the lockring a bit better.

www.Lickbike.com has pretty good park tool prices...

Buy it as part of a kit and get it much cheaper.
