Casette Question

How do you tighten a cassette which seems loose? What tools will I need?

To tighten it chances are all you'll need is a lockring remover (which is cheap) and a wrench/spanner of a suitable size. A bigger wrench is better for the leverage although I've removed and replaced a cassette with an 8".

If you want to take the cassette off again you'll need a chain whip as well.
