what tool for fixed lockring?DougSloan

I search Park Tools and Excel, and can't find the tool to remove a Dura Ace fixed gear lockring. I tried several makeshift ways, and nothing budged it. I like having the right tool. Any help? Thanks.

Use the end with one tab.

No need to spend the extra $ for Sheldon's modification, but its a good idea to copy. I have an old Park HCW5 lockring single hook spanner that works fine, but may modify it a little for those tougher jobs.

Making the tool dual purpose, saves having to carry two different wrenches on tour. Shop use would be better with two dedicated wrenches.

Better yet, two dedicated Wenches.

Found one. It has 3 prong on one end, and 1 on the other. Curiously, only the end with 3 prongs would work. I never would have thunk it. Thanks.
