I used the crap out of that wrench already. The headset remover turned out to be the wrong one though. They sent me the RT-2 instead of the RT-1 by mistake. So I just emailed them about that. The bowl is awesome. I was testing it from different angles seeing how far I could throw bolts into it without them flying out.

Nice tools! Yeah I bought some recently from Amazon as well. They sent a Cyclone Chain Cleaner, chain, and FR-4 Freewheel tool via USPS but it evidently went to a neighbor's house. Amazon's tracking showed it was delivered but it never made it to me. Amazon was very good about resending via UPS this time and it finally arrived.

Ebikestop.com has not responded to my email yet about the headset remover. Not sure why. Hopefully they will be able to send me the right one. They are advertising that the RT-2 will fit all headset sizes, it actually only fits the 1&1/4th and 1/5.

Alright! They just emailed me and let me know they were sending out the RT-1 to me on Monday. Thats Top Notch service right there. They did not even mention me having to return the other tool. Might I be able to keep this one? That would be an added bonus.

Park is the Shimano of the tool world. They are the 600 pound gorilla of bike tools. It's hard to go wrong with Park.

Dear Lord, what a nice frame. I have questions though.

1. Are you going to leave the steerer tube uncut, and use spacers above the stem?
2. Is that your PVC crown race setter on the coffee table?Big Grin
3. It doesn't look like there is a place for a derailleur hanger or stops for the derailleur cable. Is this a single speed frame?
