    That would be why they sell "cone wrenches".

    Avoid cheap crappy pressed steel cone wrenches, get a decent set . Cone flats come in different sizes.

    i kind of want to get some...but it seems like most future bikes i get would have cartridge bearing hubs. you only really need them for cone hubs...right?
