4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job!, 27 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cyclo Cassette Remover Shimano Hg (Sports)
This does exactly what it says it does and is of reasonably high quality. However, I'd like to see a version with an insert for a torque wrench.

I had to buy a 26mm socket to use with it, which surprisingly wasn't that easy as all of my local car parts / DIY stores only stocked 24mm or 27mm. Luckily I ended up finding some in a Swedish hardware chain store with the initials CO.

Re: buying a 26mm socket to drive this tool, I do a fair bit of cycle mechanics, and most of the freewheel removal tools I've come across fit into a 1" AF socket - fractionally smaller than 26mm. Might be easier/cheaper to get than a 26mm? It's also possible to clamp the tool in a bench vice and turn the wheel to remove the freewheel cluster - no socket necessary!

Or just use an adjustable spanner? Why over complicate it?

It's pretty complicated to measure torque with an adjustable spanner. It's doable, but somewhat more simple to just use a standard torque wrench. (Obviously this only matters when using the tool to put the cassette back on)

Also, adjustable wrenches slip - I try to avoid using them unless there's nothing else that fits. I'd always be happier using a socket wrench.
