    Lost my Shimano crank remover..modern equivalent?

    Afternoon :) Typical, I can't find my old trusty 22mm Shimano crank remover which I have had since the 70's :( Is there a modern equivalent I can find of good quality? I was looking at the Shimano TL-FC10. I guess it will work on all 22mm cranks (Shaimano / Campag / SR). Thanks Shaun
