Anyone know if a Park chainwhip will work on a Campy 10 speed casette.
According to Brandford's website you must use the Campy 10 speed Chainwhip which is WAY expensive.
Is that true or will the Park get the job done?
Thanks

Pro'ly related to the chain width being too large. You can make you own chain whip if you have part of an old 10 speed chain. you need to get a pice of bar stock that is thin enough for the chain, grind something down, or use a bit of the wider chain for the attatchment. A Small bolt works fine - you don't need to use expensive chain pins - besides they tend to come apart with any significant out of axis loading.

You gotta love Campy pricing - it's my biggest complaint, but some will argue you get what you pay for. To each his own.

You don't always need a Ferrari when a Fiat will do.

It works fine. I swapped a 12-25 from my Open Pros to my Ksyriums.

I use one of those things for getting stuck oil filters off of cars - cost next to nothing, and works fine on any block.

The Park Tool SR-1 and SR-2 chain whips are tested on the 10 speeds cassettes from Campy, and they work well. You would not use the chain for riding, but it works for removal.

one of the new Pedro's Cog Wrenches. They work on any cassette with 11- or 12-tooth small sprockets. About $25.

Eliminates the chain whip and its slippage, they claim. I've already ordered one (I don't already have a chain whip, however).

Happy wrenching,
