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)

What kind of Bottom Bracket tool would I need for a Windor Hour?

I don't have my bike with me at the moment, but I believe that the bottom bracket looks like this



Would this be the correct tool to use?

[edit]
Also, on the cheapo wheelset that comes with the Hour, the rear hub has a bit too much play between the axle and the hub/bearings. Would I need the hubs to be rebuilt, or could I tighten this myself?

Yeah, that's the right tool. You can get a cheap one here:

It's a nice tool, but I did have to grind the little guide pin down with a dremel to install a 113mm BB once...

You'll just need some cone wrenches to adjust the hub.

Assuming it's not actually worn out.
