    good chain whip ideas?

    anyone know of a good chain whip that also removes lockrings? I have a smaller tool but it really sucks and is nearly impossible to remove the lockring, i hear shimano has good tools...

    This set has both. For such a low price, it's a really useful set. I maintain/upgrade/etc five bikes with that set, works beautifully.

    make sure its 1/8" cause you might eventually need 1/8" and you can use a 1/8 on 3/32

    I have the same kit, and it's worth it, but it has nothing for lockrings.

    It's bad when you're 19 and people consider you an "old geezer" in the current FG community.

    Why not just get a chainwhip and a lockring spanner?

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I got careless with my Hozan C205 lock ring tool and chipped it up so the teeth were unreliable. Hated to throw it away so I drilled it out and turned it into an 1/8" chain whip. It was surprisingly easy to drill and works fine.

    The duraace tool has booth and comes with a 1/8" chain.
    I have a front brake, but I only use it for slowing or stopping.

    just drill three holes in any thin lockring tool and attach two pieces of chain. there's an explanation in the diy thread.

    Why not just just use the rotafix method for cog removal and get a good lockring tool?

    Yep.

    Bonus reasoning : the euro-asia 'supertool' thingie is only good up to a 16t cog. Do you really want to limit yourself like that?
