    Which freewheel/lockring tool to remove this rear cog?

    Can anyone tell me which specific freewheel/lockring tool I need to remove the cog in this photo. I have an FR-5, which is tool small, but looking at Park Tool's site, I can't figure out which tool is the right one. Thanks in advance.

    I doubt it is FR8 - FR8 has 4 notches.
    What you need is adjustable lock ring spanners or adjustable wrench (fixed gear style). But before you run out to buy/loan it - do you have bb wrench like this Park Tool Co. HCW-5 : Crank and Bottom Bracket Wrench : Crank Tools
    I use it on my FG builds to install/remove lockrings. And yours btw looks like BB lockring

    And I assume you do have chainwhip and know how to use it?

    Agreed. Looks like a plain ol' lockring.

    Thanks mongol777, a channel lock and chainwhip ended up doing the trick (because I'm impatient), but I will pick up that tool for future use.

    Awesome!!! I was about to suggest just using chainwhip and flat screwdriver to get it out but than realized that you will need to put it back on and tighten it good (as I assume you want to change the cog). Channel lock sure beats my screwdriver idea!
    That tool is very handy - I use for both servicing/installing old school BBs and it is awesome for my fixie lockrings as well.

    I've used a punch and hammer before. Only issue is judging how tight it is when putting it back on.

    I was going to say screwdriver (and hammer) too!
    Thanks to www.weavercycleworks.com for my awesome bike frames!

    Probably two most useful tools! I have to admit I used screwdriver/hammer combo a lot when I started wrenching, took me some time to buy the right tools and learn how to use them
