    Old Schwinn freewheel removal

    Hello, I have a rear wheel from a schwinn (collegiate?). It has 5 cogs. Markings on it say "Schwinn approved" "made in France model F2". I am having a hard time finding a correct removal tool. I bought a Park FR-4 but it is way too small diameter. Anyone know what I should be looking for ?

    Have a look at this post/thread by Metacortex. He explained it fully.

    Thanks. I need to learn how to search the forums. Bicycle Research CT-3

    GOOD GRIEF ! $35.99 plus 3.79 shipping. Only one on Ebay. I only paid $12.50 for the bike.

    Yes, the Bicycle Research CT-3 is the tool you need. It is expensive, but then again, it has been out of production for decades and is a very small niche market. Perhaps your LBS already has one you could use on the rare occasions you need it?

    throw that bike away and get one that is worth spending money repairing,
    if that is the way you see the world.

    Have your bike shop remove it for whatever ($5-10) they might charge. Problem solved.
