Well?

I'm fairly certain its a cassette and not a freewheel. Its an XC Pro hub and Suntour block. There's no teeth for a cassette tool :? I tried two chain whips, one on the big teeth and one on the 11 and blew up one of my whips. Exploded in pieces on the garage floor. Cassette 1, me, 0

What am I doing wrong?

Suntour cassettes lock on with the 11/12t cog. Two chain whips is the way to go!

Good luck buddy.

Hi,

I tried with 2 with mine. No chance. If cassette is really worn I think it will be new cassette & body

Last time I tried changing the one on my old Dynatech, I ended up using a blow torch to warm it and I eventually got 2 chain whips to move it...

Downside was I managed to melt some seals on the body at the same time :oops:

Forget it, I gave up. I got the 11t off with two chain whips, but then...nothing. I'm guessing the second inner cog comes off counterclockwise too?

No amount of leverage would move it. I broke two chain whips.
