    Rims do not have chainrings, or cogs.

    OP is using the term 'rim' when referring to the entire wheel, the same as people do when talking about cars. It's entirely inaccurate, as the rim is only the outside edge, so you might want to use the proper terms to get the best help around here.

    Anyway, you need a chain whip to hold the cassette in place, and a cassette lockring tool to loosen the lockring.

    Or not. If it is a 6-speed cassette he needs two chainwhips. If it is a freewheel, the proper removal tool and a bench vise.

    The Park Tool site will detail the proper names for the components and how to service them, which is why I included the link in the first place.

    Now if he could fix his writing skills...

    I just recently followed the instructions on this page:

    http://www.parktool.com/repair/readhowto.asp?id=46

    I had to use the "destructive" method, but that was ok because I was putting on a new freewheel, so I didn't need the old one.

    I also had to buy some tools. I bought a pin-spanner for the bearing cone, which pin-spanner was a huge help during the destructive removal process. I also bought a lockring tool.

    Claysaddiction, what are you replacing the freewheel with? Have you bought a new one? Taking it off is one thing. But you have to put something else back on, else your bike won't be rideable.
