    Centerlock tool?

    Hey guys! Got a new set of 29er wheels for my switchblade. Currently running the reynolds 27.5+. Wheels are centerlock what tool do I need to remove the lockring(i think thats what it is) so I can swap over my cassete and disk rotors? Where can I get it? And are there any neccesary tricks or tips for doing this? I am thinking its pretty straight forward but this would be my fist time ever doing it.

    Cassette lockring tool which can be picked up everywhere. You will also need a chain whip to remove the cassette.

    Depends on the lockring. You need either a shimano cassette tool, which you also need for the cassette. Or an external bottom bracket tool for the oversize lockrings.

    Park BBT-9 for the front rotor lockring

    Park FR-5.2 (FR-5H if you want to get fancy) for the rear rotor lockring
    - also used with a Park SR-12 (Park CP-1 if you want to get fancy) for the cassette lockring

    You can use alternatives, but I'd return the tools which have a loose fitting interface with the parts if I were you. Park Tools are not immune to this issue. The less expensive options may be just as good, and there could be better possibly lower priced. There's a B-Twin chainwhip that's sold out from Decathlon (UK store) that I had my eyes on, for example (doesn't work on SRAM's 10t).
