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)

Does anyone make a chainwhip/fixed lockring combo tool?

I found a super sweet one with integrated 15mm wrench but it was $119.00, which I think is a little much.. would appriciate if someone could point me towards the poormans version.

Park has that one that holds their lockring tool in a 22mm hex or whatever. Close, but not quite what you are looking for.

I bought mine in UK, and I haven't seen them anywhere else than this one shop in London.
Try some track specific shops in US and ask them if they know about it.
I might be able to post pics later.

yeah, they are the only place in London that carries a good range of track/fixed gear stuff.
I got my hub directly from goldtec, cos condor didn't have one with 130mm spacing, and said it would take them a month to get the hub. goldtec sent me one in 2 days.

and here's the photo of the tool.
