    RIG owners question

    This maybe a dumb question, but those of you that own GF Rigs, I just got mine(finally) rode it today and it was great, but for my trails I really need a 20t in the back. I have the 20t cog, but the lock ring on the hub is different that just a normal cassette lockring. What tool is needed to get it off, my LBS didn't have it(very small store) but I want to buy one for myself anyway for cog changes etc. Thanks for he help !! Jus

    Your LBS does not have a BB adjustable cup lockring tool? They must be a very new shop.

    In a pinch slip jaw pliers can be used but the proper tool is best.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    thanks guys! I will check w/ the LBS he may have the tool. He is a one owner/and operated small shop in a very small town. We are lucky to have him so we can get quality bikes w/ out driving 1hr plus. I am one of 2 singlespeeders in this town so he may have the tool but didn't know that it was what he needed, but I got it off last nite w/ a (pin spanner) type tool and chainwhip no problem, but I will check w/ him and look through his Park Tool display, he could have had it all a long. THANKS GUYS really appreciate your help, this is why I enjoy this sport so much, good people involved in it!! later on, Justin

    I replaced the lockring on my Rig with a steel lockring scavenged from an old BMX BB. The threads on the stock aluminum one are like butter.
