    Lockring/Chainwhip Tool recommendation?

    I'm thinking about getting the Shimano TL-SR22 Track Lockring/Chainwhip Tool. Are there any other combo tools that you guys recommend?

    Use the chain on your bike. Just wrap it around the cog. And spin your rim.

    That is the tool that I have, and it works perfectly. Not a lot of torque in it if you have a cog that is really stuck, but for the most part it works perfectly for lockrings and cogs.

    Use a little bit of liquid wrench or something similar in the gap between the hub thread and cog/lockring. WD-40 should work well enough. Take utmost care as to no excess would go into bearings. Let it sit for a few minutes ... perhaps a smoke. Then try again with that tool and cog should come free. For me, cogs almost slip off without much more torque than I regularly give.

    Correction: You're right, I have to work at it, but I don't jump or hammer on it. That's all I mean by "torque I regularly give". ...

    Raleigh owns this brand called 'Avenir' which makes pretty inexpensive tools. Maybe not the best quality, but I bought a lockring/chainwhip/15mm/14mm wrench + bottle opener for like 20 bucs.

    seems to work well enough.
    No matter how bad things get, they can't get any better, and they can't get any worse, things are what they are, so you better get used to it Nancy, quit your B*tchin'

    How would your your chain be useful in installing/removing - or even tightening - a lockring?

    i just have a trixie tool. I use it for the lockring, and then I use the chain on my bike for the cogs. Not amazing, but it works. I've yet to strip a lockring or anything like that with it...

    you can also attach some chain to it and make it into a chainwhip, but i don't do that b/c I want to keep it portable

    If you want a portable combo tool; I recommend from ownership the sunlite 3 in 1 (chainwhip, lockring tool, universal pedal wrench) tool really handy and perfectly sized for torque and portability.

    Combo tools are handy but if you want something that lasts way longer and performs easier and better, spend the extra money and get shop quality tools at home like the park tool sr1/2 (2 is way better in my opinion) and a hozan lock ring tool.

    I understand using the rotafix method to install or remove a cog. However, without being able to first remove your lockring, your cog ain't goin' nowhere.

    A flathead and a hammer takes care of both loosening and tightening the lockring.... although I cannot guarantee effectiveness or not damaging to yourself or the lockring/ cog is going to happen... just like to mention aswell that I've only seen it being done.

    I was wondering about the same thing too...

    I have the Hozan bb/headset/lockring tool, works great.

    As far as bad ideas go, that's awesome.

    Use two different tools. Get the big Park chainwhip and Hozan lockring pliers. These are two tools that will not let you down. Even if you break the chain on the chainwhip (and I've done it), it's easily replaced.

    How did that happen? It doesn't look like anything that could start a fire or anything. If I didn't know any better, I would imagine it's a kinky sex toy or something.

    Here in the US, they won't let you on a plane with nail clippers. That tool could actually be used as a weapon.

    You are lying to me, I distinctly remember Indy Jones putting a hand *** and a whip inside his carry-on in the Last Crusade.

    Just kidding. Thanks for telling me. Stops at customs and trashed / searched suitcases just ruin the day. Not that I dislike customs people tho. Most of em are real nice to me.

    I remember buying wax chain lube on sale, and thinking what a great deal I scored, then watching them toss it in the bin at the airport.

    +1 on that. I just picked one up recently and it's been working great. This guy:
