    order a lockring wrench on the interweb.

    No, seriously I would either wait till you can get ahold of one or suck it up and buy one. Lockring is one of those things you don't want coming loose on ya.

    there's certain components and tools you cant cheap out on cause its just going to cost you more money and time and possibly injure your self in the end do the right thing for your self and your wheel cause i work in a shop and i see way to many striped out hubs and bottom brackets do the right thing bud

    I got a brand new lockring wrench shipped from ebay for 6 dollars. keep looking.
    I am looking for a 52cm-ish lugged mixte or ladies frame. Pm if you got one.

    6" Irwin Vise Grip c-clamps (with tips, not pads). works like a charm.

    and then you can grind down the tips and it works even better, or so i hear.


    available at sears and any fine hardware store in your area!
