Cassette Tools

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 has come 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.

Chain Tools

TLP18 Park CT-6.3 Folding Chain Tool buy button

The Park CT-6.3 is all the chain tool anybody needs.*

Like it's big brother, the Shop model CT-5, the pin automatically stops at the right spot, so you can open the chain but you won't accidentally push the rivet all the way through and ruin the link.

In addition, it folds to a smooth, compact shape that is easy to carry. 120 grams.

*That's assuming you only work on 3/32" derailer-type chain. If you work on the wide 1/8" chain, you'd probably be better off with a model that does not have the auto stop feature.
