    Here's an article that explains why you need those tools and how to use them. It even has pictures If you are planning to do your own maintenance, tools will pay for themselves in short order.

    take it to a shop, so that someone who knows what they are doing can help you out before you break something.

    A 6" piece of chain and a vise-grip can be used as a chain whip.

    first of all, I already bought a new wheel! thats why i needed to get the cassette off my old one, cuz i wanted to use it for my new wheel. And i bought a new cassette and chain today, so everything is all good. I just have 2 wheels and a cassette which im unsure what to do with(my old wheels and cassette).
