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)

Micro adjust seatpost tool?

i have one of the old campy style micr adjusting seatpost and its difficult to get the bolts tight because they are located on top instead of the bottom of the post (pict having the allen key hole on modern seatpost but on top instead). i use my fingers to tighten but can't get it fully tight. can someone give me a link on how to tighten it or is there a special tool needed?

The easiest way to get at it is with a 10mm offset ratcheting box wrench. I picked one up from Snap-On for like $12 with free shipping. This is the wrench in question -- Wrench, Metric, Ratcheting Box, 25 Offset, Standard Length, 9-10 mm, 12-Point
