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)

Park CT-5 Chain Tool

Does this thing work on 1/8" chains?

I need a semi-cheap, decent chain tool. And lockring tool. Any recommendations?

+1 on the hozan lockring tool. All of park's lockring tools are garbage.
