Hi guys.

I've just bought a set of Mavic Crossride wheels.

However I'm a little confused as to what tool I require to take off the disc? (to swap from 160 to 180mm).

It's a mavic branded centre lock.

Thanks

Cassette tool will do for splined discs :)


Cheers but all the ones I have seen have the thread on the outside of the tool.

If you have any links I'd be extremely grateful.

i'd go for an open ended one, if you then go on to get an external bottom bracket, it'll mean you don't have to take the crank off if the cups need tightening up :P

Well I went to Merlin Earlier and bought this: http://www.merlincycles.com/bike-shop/workshop-tools/tools/tools-workshop/icetoolz-hollowtech-2-tools.html

Which is the same size as disc holder and would fit perfectly, if the axle wasn't in the ruddy way. :D

Looks like a trip to ribble tomorrow to pick this up: http://www.ribblecycles.co.uk/sp/mtb-bmx-bike/Tacx-T4435-BB-Cup-Tool-for-external-cups/TACXTOOL485000000000

Ruddy bikes. :lol:
