    removing belt-drive cog?

    My wife has a new Raleigh XXIX, and the belt keeps falling off. It looks like moving a spacer on the freehub might fix the alignment, keeping it on track.

    Trouble is, I can't figure out how to remove the lockring from the freehub. I can't exactly put a chain whip on it to keep the cog in place, so how do I back-off the lockring... I need a way to keep it from spinning.

    FWIW, I don't have any experience with a freehub style single speed set up, I have freewheels on my bike, so maybe there's a simple solution that I"m missing.
    I have a car. I made a choice. I ride my bike.

    I had to put the rear cog in a vise to hold it from spinning. There is a tool for removing the rear cog but I don't want to spend the bucks for something I'd rarely use.

    You can do it with an oil filter wrench/strap wrench. I also use them for removing the rear can on air shocks. Try lowes or home depot.

    I definitely would avoid the vise method - you could damage the teeth on the cog, which could in turn damage the belt. Use the oil filter wrench. Cheap and effective.
