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)

I half expected to see: "Hey guys.. am I a tool cause I (insert hipster attribute here) OT though, I think BB lockrings are bigger. They will thread onto the larger threads on a normal track hub, while cog lockrings obviously thread onto the smaller. You COULD however, use the right side of the tool on either.

i tried using the single pin side on mine, but it would always slip out of the notch in the lockring. maybe the tolerances on mine weren't as good? i'll have to try the other side later. otherwise i'm just going to buy a new one from mcmaster-carr

When I bought one the bloke at LBS suggested filing inside the pin to get more of an edge to grip. Haven't tried it though, my BB ring came off sweet and i's got a freewheel out back.

my LBS gave me one for FREE because the single pin side was a little worn out, which i understand is common for the ones made by park. i also use the left side to take of DA lockrings! it works ok.
