The shimano 8spd cassette on my bike is looking pretty worn, so I've ordered a replacement 8spd cassette made by Sram, along with a Sram 8spd chain and some shimano compatible jockey wheels.

Will my Pamir Hypercracker thingy fit the Sram cassette lockring? it works fine for Shimano :D

In short yes it will.

If you happen to have a spare Hypercracker though, I'd be very interested in buying it.

good news :D

I "re-discovered" the Hypercracker at the bottom of my toolbox a few months ago, neat little thing tbh.
I only remember having the one though, sorry.

I keep hoping my hypercracker turns up :( not seen it for 15 odd years :lol:


For those that wish to know more, a brilliant on the road tool (or when you don't want to lug large tools to you mates)

wow so it turns your bike into a giant lockring tool!
would you then use the chain for chain whip purposes?

yes, the chain acts as the chainwhip tool.
I never needed to use it out on the trail, but it worked well enough as a "workshop" tool, I still haven't bought another cassette tool or chainwhip :lol:
