    Yes – otherwise it would unwind when pedalling – esp in low gears.

    They are a bit of a bitch to remove.

    A vice to hold the tool, and a good sharp jerk tends to do it.

    Good luck!

    Anyone know what the thread direction is on a DT Swiss 240 rear hub ring nut? I’ve got the tool and Im assuming its a normal rh thread ie. it tightens as you ride. So to remove it with the tool clamped in the vice, you would turn the wheel clockwise ie. form the lhs?

    Its very tight and cant seem to budge it, even with a little heat.

    Is this the correct assumption?
    Cheers

    Just read again – it’s a regular RHYS thread, so if tool is in the vice, and you’re looking down on the wheel, you turn the wheel anti-clockwise.

    I wouldn’t use any heat on it.

    Thought I was going to snap my spokes when I removed mine.

    I managed to snap my ‘proper’ Record vice undoing mine. Top tip, don’t use any threadlock when reassembling.

    We recently removed one in the bike shop where i worked that needed a few days soaking with plus gas beforehand and using a 10″ vice to hold the tool, even then as we tried to remove it by two of us using the wheel for leverage it was a worrying moment when we noticed the spokes flexing and deforming the rim.

    It’s just as well the bearing under there does not often need doing , I’ve never had one unscrew easily
