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)

Stuck chainring stack bolt?

I am trying to center my chainring as described here under chain tension:

http://sheldonbrown.com/fixed.html

but one of the stack bolts is stuck. It just turns in the crank spider, and will not loosen. What sort of tool am I supposed to use to hold the back side of the bolt (with the two slots across from each other) still while I turn the front side (the 5mm hex)? Or is there some other trick to this?

Hopefully I'll have this damn bike together tomorrow... so close.

Big-ass screwdriver?

They make special chainring bolt tools, but a screwdriver should work.
