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)

Where can I find this tool?

I don't know if this particular tool has been posted here but do you all know where I can find this lockring wrench/15mm wrench? Also is it worth buying?

LBS perhaps ?

And yes, they are rather essential.

ah, the extremely overpriced eai supertool. with the money you spend on that you can get a sick wrench, a bomb lockring tool AND a nice chainwhip.

or you could just drop an insane amount of cash on that one tool.

man people love that tool. i guess its kind of cool, but my cheapish chainwhip and lockring tool have been more than adequate for my needs. as far as the 15 mm wrench, its a nice add on but it isn't like i would ever carry that thing in my bag so it isn't much of a selling point for me. *shrug*

yeah, for that price it really only makes sense if you're going to the track and don't want to have to carry all your tools in your bag with you.
but i know i definitly wouldn't carry a $130 tool in my bag to get stolen or broken... and if i'm leaving it at my house on my tool bench what's the point? i already have bombproof versions of all those tools.

seriously, leave that tool to the people who really feel they need it (or spend the insane amount of money on it, i don't give a schit).
