Get a whole set of tools at Hup Leong for about $80. It will allow you to perform a complete bike installation/servicing except headset press and crown race installation.

  I bought my X-Tools from CRC too very handy. The other good tool you migh want to have is a torq wrench, especially for the carbon parts

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.  "

"Formerly posted by Zappadeedoohdah: 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"

Many thanks. The one I easily removed with circlip plier was found to be loosen by road vibrations (went over many potholes...). The lockring can be further self-tighten as we pedal the bike.

Eh... The lockring will not tighten as you pedal... It's screwed on like a traditional freewheel but the chain does not pull the lockring clockwise to "tighten" it cos there's no contact between the chain and lockring.

Many years ago, i bought a small box of bike tools called "Bikehand" and it have served me very well till today. It has a casette tool, a chain-whip which also server as a pedal wrench. A chain breaker, a spoke tool and crank extractor (for internal BB).

I have seen it selling at Giant supermart sometime last year while browsing the bike accessories department. Cost, I think is below $50.
