So I have an old 27" road bike wheel, and I want to convert it into a single speed.
It has the 2 prong/hole freewheel, so I went and bought a park fr-2 tool to remove it.
Unfortunately someone had fuddled with the freewheel before I got it, and the 2 little grooves were a bit sheared.
When I tried to remove it with the park fr-2, it pretty much just mangled what was left of the metal notches.
I read on Sheldon Brown that if the prongs are broken off (they are) then I have to disassemble the freewheel and clamp its core into a vise. I haven't figured out how to take it apart though.
Is there any other way to get this darn freewheel loose from the hub?
I don't care if the freewheel ends up ruined or anything.
I was sort of planning on using a dremmel tool and grinding it away and dissecting it.
Anyone have any other tips?
It has a quick release skewer, in case that matters.
