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)

all-in-one chainwhip/lockring spanner?

Does anyone know where one can purchase a tool like the Tomity tool with a chainwhip on the opposing side of a lockring tool? It seems as though the Tomity tool is either out of production or very difficult to find. I know that there was a similar Dura Ace tool made but I can't find that one either.

Are they still available anywhere? Any current manufacturers producing these things?

I have one made by Shimano, TL SR-22. Got it 2 months ago at my LBS for about $30 I think.
It costs more on this web site so I would shop around. I got the 1 for 1/8" chain but works on 3/32 as well.

supertool looks pretty terrible. can it securely latch onto a cog and is it long enough to provide the leverage for the job? looks like neither is true but 'd like to hear otherwise.

after reading further on that link, i see it only works for 14 or 15 tooth cogs. useless.

anyone know where to buy a real version of one of these for a reasonable price?

I think the main problem with the Supertool is that it can only fit a small range of cog sizes, no bigger than a 15 tooth. If you need a cog tool for your street bike, then you might very well have a 16-18 tooth cog, which the supertool wouldn't fit well. Oh... and it's $120!

euroasia makes one too, which may have a larger range. i think they stock the dura ace one as well. it shouldn't be hard to order from a shop, quit looking online.

The Shimano tool works great. Long sturdy handle, more than enough chain for a 16t so would be plenty for more teeth. Rubber on the handle for my supple hands.
I can whack it with a hammer to remove seized cogs. I haven't used anything else but it works for me.
