    QQ: What Freewheel remover tool do I need for this Campy?

    Quick Question;I believe I have this Campagnolo Freewheel and would like to know what tool is needed to remove it. I went to one LBS and they did not have the tool.

    Looks like the wide two prong freewheel tool should work.

    No. There is a specific Campagnolo freewheel tool for their aluminum freewheels. It had spiral prongs in order to lock into the freewheel on removal. I can't find a picture of it, but here's the Bicycle Research version: http://www.bicycletool.com/campagnol...elremover.aspx

    Yeah- NO NO [I'm sorry,] You have to do what Jeff Wills says. An eBaY scalper pbbikes understandably a bike shop had some tools they'd put on sale for $40 from $60 and when nobody took they jacked it up to $80 or something. Using the right tool will make like a $200 difference in what you get should you decide to unload the piece. If your belief has come true you must be poorer by $150-$480, and you've a non straight block. You could keep inquiring at shops, arrange something with a forum member who has the tool, (one of my justifications for buying the tool without being an owner,) or put it on a wheel which has never broken spokes which you'd be content leaving as is for a while. Or pay the $4000 for a full toolkit with frame prep tools and nice wood box. I think this is enough proselytizing to have gotten out of my system abandoned aspirations to get one of these; single cogs cost what a whole freewheel goes for!?!

    something like that. the prongs or ears have a slight twist in them to help it 'dig into' the freewheel.

    NOTHING else will work. I had to try and remove once for one of our team riders. unfortunatley he had to race on his training wheels (which were actually nicer than alot of our racing wheels)

    Irvri I would buy the one on ebay. if you sell that freewheel just add $10 to the price your were going to ask. I would offer to lend you mine but after paying roundtrip postage you may as well buy that one.

    DO NOT DO THIS!!!!!!! These freewheels are super lightweight and very delicate if not handled properly. I have seen many of these get ruined by ham-handed mechanics using tools that were not appropriate or who used methods like those described by Alan Edwards. The proper tools are not that difficult to find. You don't necessarily need to buy it, you can likely find somebody in your area who has one. I have two of them that I have lent out to many people in my area. (I am not keen to mail them)

    008.jpg I know all about people that use the wrong tool. This wonderful freewheel was screwed up by the previous owner and I have been carefully working on it.
    Making a tool that is impossible to get is some times the only way to go. I'm glad that there are people here who can help out because that tool you need on fleebay can turn into a crap shoot leaving you with nothing. Sorry irvri I only have the four prong and the two prong.

    Alan, I have that same 5-speed Everest freewheel with an intact body. Let me know if it might be of interest.
