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 get this Lockring tool?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEDW:IT&ih=005


I'm pretty bummed someone outbid me in the last few seconds. I had never seen this tool in this configuration, personally i think its freaking great!
So any of you know where i can get this tool(I'm in Canada)? Online shop?

The park tools one totally blows just from looking at it and the hozan pliers are too godamn expensive. So i really think that if this tool is not being made anymore it should be put back in production. I know it;s not that easy but as customers we should access to competitive tools.

Use something like jbidwatcer to snipe it. Either the winning bidder did something like this, or they got lucky.

Hozan pliers are worth every penny.

That tool is intended to be used to adjust the bearings of Suntour New Winner and Winner Pro freewheels, not for removing fixed cog lockrings.
