    What tool do I need to remove the adjusting cap off of my 105 crankset?

    I'm trying to gather the tools I need to be self sustaining with my roadie, so an important (but very specialized) tool I need is the one to remove that plastic (adjusting?) cap off of the NDS crankarm from my 105 set.

    Is it this?

    That's the one. Loosen the screws on the crank arm first. That makes it easier to unscrew the cap.
