Hypercracker Redux!

Since the original Pamir "Hypercracker" went out of production a couple of years ago, there has been no small, portable tool available that would allow on-the-road cassette removal.

Such a tool is of vital importance to the touring cyclist, because it's the only way to be able to replace a broken spoke on the right side of the rear wheel, the most common spot for spokes to break.

Jim Stein came to the touring cyclist's rescue with the new Stein Mini Cassette Lock tool.

Although this tool is a bit more expensive than the original Hypercracker, it is lighter, smaller and made with more precision. USA

I was occasionally having a problem with them coming apart under repeated loading so I have redesigned them. (it is miserable to have such a tool fail just when it is needed!) They are now milled from one piece of steel instead of using a pressed in insert. I increased the price a bit as it is much more expensive to make.--Jim Stein, September 2007

New! This pocket lockring tool from Unior is even smaller and simpler, though it might not be quite as gentle on your frame's paint.

This handy tool also includes a 3-cornered emergency spoke wrench (fits European size spokes.)
