    don’t you get one with the cranks?
    is there not an aftermarket non-shimano version?

    Not if you buy the OEM cranks from Wiggle, CRC, Merlin etc.

    no-eyed-deer – I have two so no problem lending you one but it would be by mail. You’d be wanting the other wee tool too?

    I got one off ebay from china for a fiver I think, probably made from mild steel or similar cheep monkey metal rather than the workshop quality shimano one, but as you say it’ll only get used a few times.

    Thanks guys! @scoutroutes – that’s great – the other little tool would be a bonus too actually, as I’ve been managing to make the bearing load adjustment with mole grips up till now 😳

    I’ll have to invest in one of those cheapo Chinese ones afterward, but for now I’ve got a bike with half-detached rear swingarm and only an XTR chainset blocking its path to freedom! (Most frustrating!)

    Cheers! 🙂

    I’m looking for one of these tools please:

    I can’t for the life of me believe how much Shimano want to charge for this little piece of metal – £35! I’ll probably only use one of these, oh, maybe 4-5 times this lifetime..

    Can anyone help – I can offer beer tokens, or an inner tube or something ??? 🙂
