    Who makes a tool for track cog lockring removal?

    I don't know what the tool is called to remove the lockring on my fixed gear. Who makes a good one?

    I've been keeping my eye open for a tool with a lockring remover on one end and a 15mm box end wrench on the other.

    Once you get the lockring off and if you want to save cash on not having to buy a chain whip, you can do a reverse rotafix.

    Mine says ROCK RING WRENCH. I guess it really was made in Japan.

    When I first got it I had to look several times and show it to other people to be sure I was seeing it correctly.

    My Hozan tool also says ROCK RING

    Well, mine says LOCK RING WRENCH, so they got it right by the time they started fabricating my series. And yes, it's the C-205, a very sweet tool indeed, one of the prides of my toolbox.

    A bit offtopic: if I have to mention a tool that was more expensive than the average to get, and yet I got every cent back from it, and more, much more... it's the Rohloff Revolver 2. About 3-5 times as epensive as the average chaintool, but so excellent, I am totally satisfied with the purchase. It's the tool I'd bring with me to the proverbial deserted island. The rest I'd improvise from seashells and cacti.
