    You can have a dealer order one for you. But, it comes in a kit with other crank tools. I think the kit costs around $200.

    This BB tool from Parker Tool also has eight notches, but was designed to remove the lock ring on some older Shimano cranks. It is stocked locally and cost only $15! Will it possibly fit the Specialized spider lock ring?

    I called my dealer here in Norway and the tool (CKM-1009) is not really readily available.

    I wish that park tool would work, but looking at it i do not thing it will, the specialized crank has the huge spindle that would need to pass through the center of the socket, I would love to own one, but i just cant swallow spending the coin on that tool that I would only use a few times a year. They arent available here in the US at the moment either. Only a few specialized shops in the area actually have the tool, and the ones that do only have the 09 tool for the Road cranks, the new 2010 version has a larger diameter and/or deeper hole for the mountain cranks. I hear they can take it to a machine shop though to make it work for the newer cranks, but none of them have gone that route.

    Nope, not going to work. What ErikGBL needs is this:



    Doesn't your local dealer have one so you could just pay them to change the spider? Or, let you borrow...?

    Any specialized dealer can get one for you, but like everything else the price jumped up this year to $250.00

    I was able to use the Park green pin spanner last week in a pinch.
