Last night, I removed one Shimano Ultegra cassette for replacement with a circlip plier. Circlip plier can be bought at hardware shop, some DIY shop, too.

RBC that sounds like hard work - lockrings are supposed to be torqued up to 35Nm ish. would imagine it was  hard to shift with pliers

James - for Shimano SRAM cassettes a Park tool FR 5 or similar Shimano version and a chain whip. Hup leong sell that kind of stuff worth giving them a call. Or Kiats marketing at Aljunied carry park tools

I don't like the cheap lockring removers - they tend to be made out of thicker metal and don't fit between the lockring and axel on a lot of hubs in my Experience

Cheapest option will probably to bring the new cassette and wheel to LBS and ask them to install for you; should be free from the shop you got the cassette from otherwise $5~$10 something like that I would imagine

just purchase a cassette tool. lockring plus chainwhip would cost u less than 30 bucks.

or u could do like what other togopart members suggested which is to bring to the shop (something which i find very troublesome when a 1min job could be done at home if u purchase ur own tools )



Juz my 2 cents

Hup Leong is at Chin Swee road - but a park tool or Shimano Chain whip / lockring tool is going to be $50+ I would imagine I got mine from CRC and it was $45 for a park tool chain whip and Shimano lockring tool.

There is a place at upper thomson / Tagore called Hiap Guan metal industries that sells cheaper ones 'Super B from Taiwan' a mate bought a basic bike tool kit that covers most basic maintenance tasks for about $70 from them. Not sure whether they sell the tools seperately - phone them and ask. It aint park tool quality but if you are not using it a lot should be OK.

Below $30, difficult. You need a chainwhip, a cassette lockring removal tool, and maybe a pair of adjustable pliers to grip onto the tool.

Buy the X-Tools 18 pcs toolbox from Chainreactioncycles for about $70 + shipping or Bike Hand 18 pcs toolbox locally for about $80. Both will contain all the basic tools needed, including allen keys, spoke wrench, bb removal tool, crank remover, lockring removal tool, chain whip, cone wrench, etc.

I got my Bike Hand set from L&T in Tampines. Tampines Giant also sells them but last I checked they were out of stock. Parkway Giant does not carry the toolbox.
