    Hozan lockring wrench. I think Harris sells them....

    Edit: Oops, beat me to it by a few seconds. I got the Hozan over the Keirin multi-tool for two reasons, one - it will adjust both types of lockring, and two - my lbs had a few used ones in the back that they were selling for ~ $5...

    The Hozan is the best, IMO. Don't get a Park - they slip a lot and you end up with a stripped lockring and bloody knuckles. Business Cycles has them, too.

    kinda sounded like you needed a pin spanner...which you'll need anyway to hold the cup in place while you're tightening the lockring.

    PIN SPANNER AHOY!!!!!!! i hate those things.

    The Park tool does suck but you can make it better by wedging a penny under the wrench where it starts to arc free from the lockring. This will act as a brake and allow you actually get some leverage on it.

    I think I got that from someone here, in fact.

    Ditch the campy lockring and replace it with a phil, it's the same reverse threading and much easier to get on/off.

    Another vote for the Hozan lockring pliers. They are amazing. I'll never use anything else. Business Cycles has them.

    could you explain that differently? i'm putting a new cog on tomorrow and i don't quite understand what you mean. thanks. where exactly do you put the penny, i mean. (get your minds out of the gutter...)

    Assuming it's a standard lockring with two notches, one in either side of the ring, you fit the wrench as normal. However, the Park tool has a larger arc than the lockring so it doesn't have much contact with the ring, arcing away too soo. So you wedge a penny in between the inside face of the wrench and the lockring to establish a point of contact and go to town.
