    Single speed cog removal

    Probably not the smartest question but what tool is needed to remove the slotted nut on a bontrager mustang ss hub that goes over the cog? I've been using a spanner wrench for a couple of years but it isn't the right tool. Last night it slipped off when I tightened the nut and I saw bloody knuckles! Thanks

    Throw up a picture real quick. "Spanner wrench" describes a few different kinds of wrench, depending on where you live.

    But not Luddite to participate on an internet forum.

    Lame when your asking a question but unwilling to post a photo to assist.

    That's the one you're using now? They are pretty universal for slotted lockrings and generally work well if you're careful and keep the tool square. They are kind of a pita though and many knuckles have been bloodied.

    You say it's the wrong one though? I have respect for tech luddites but we'll either need a pic or better description to give more help.

    I'll try to send a picture. Still haven't figured out how to do that on an iPhone but the iPod might work. For what it's worth, my kids think I'm lame too![ATTACH=CONFIG]1162625[/ATTACH

    You have the right tool, at least one of them. The hook on the end tends to get worn and more prone to slipping, sometimes a file can help. Hozan makes one that works better IME.

    There's also ones made by Pedros, Park etc that have more bite- https://www.competitivecyclist.com/p...NhdDEwMDM4Mw==

    External ones are available for ISIS bb's that I think work too but not 100% sure.

    Whichever you use make sure to grease the threads for easier torquing and removal.
