    What's your favorite tool? (removal of ENO freehub)

    White Industries freewheels on a Surly rear hub - no eccentric funny stuff here:

    Pedros tool doesn't do the job. It fits fine on Dicta and ACS freewheels, but doesn't cut it on the WI.

    According to the measurements on the Park website the FR-6 should do the job (too bad my bike shop was too lazy to order that one in the first place.) Am I right? Should I use the ACS wrench instead?

    What's your favorite tool?

    I'm a sucker for my Jethro Tool. At least I think that's what it's called. I've had it for 10yrs or so. Surly axle bolt tool w/ bottle opener on handle end.

    Naw, I've got a 15mm Craftsman box-end for taking the wheels off.

    I gotta remove the freewheel. 17t is too tall. Need to swap on the 19t.

    Use the park. You're right about the Pedro's one. The diameter of the 4 prongs is a little wide, and doesnt fit well.

    I use the Park, works great. I mount the tool to the hub with the axle screw, just hand tighten. Then use a breaker bar and socket to loosen the freewheel, works great.

    I use the ACS tool, it works well on my WI freewheels. It's big and hefty too, kind of fun.
