Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

If its the miche primato that you have, I used a park freewheel remover on mine and it worked perfectly.

That's the Campag pattern one, so it is. I use the Cyclo Campag tool and it's the same but cheaper and nastier.

Wont those MICHE ones just loosen up and fall out if you just keep riding it for awhile anyway?
