Gear Block Removal Tool
#1
Hello

Can I buy an adapter for removing my gearblock from my rear hub anywhere?
I worked in a bike shop many years ago and these adapters have only been available to the trade.

I need to change my rear wheel due to the state of the rim and a damaged ball race caused by a bent axle.
Regards

Jim

You say you worked in a bike shop many years ago?

I do not think UK is one of the states. :-)))

Suggest checking this link for tools. Also Suggest checking the repair guide on top of this page to err.... refresh your memory as to how its done.

There are several types, do you have a freewheel or a freehub and cassette?

In any case, once you know what type you need there are lots of places you can buy them on-line:

Hi.

It is the freewheel type which screws onto the hub and has a "star" type fitting for the removal tool.
Thanks for the links to suppliers.
