I think it's a 9spd, but I'm out of town right now, can't see it.

Wouldn't it have to be to be working with my 9spd cassette?

So I made a little cog tool out of spare parts I had lying around

The Park tool is 20 bucks at the local store and it's something I'll use once in a blue moon. I figgered this'd do the trick.

And I purchased the splined tool

http://robfeature.smugmug.com/photos/204015740-L.jpg

So here's my question...I'm assuming that tightening the cog/freewheel is done in the direction which pedal force is applied. Therefore I'm going the other way to loosen. Am I wrong? Cause I can't get this thing to budge even with a breaker. It is a good 10 years old...am I just not trying hard enough or am I stoopit and going the wrong way?

FreeWHEEL (gears and ratcheting mechanism in one) or freeHUB? (ratcheting mechanism attached permanently to the hub, gears are slide on/off with a lockring) If you've got a freeWHEEL, you have the wrong stuff. Chances are the splines on that tool aren't long enough to get a good bite on the splines on the FW. FR-1 is the one you need. (assuming it ain't a 2- or 4-prong Suntour FW :bluduh)

If its a freeHUB, then you've got the right stuff. Hold the cassette with your chain whip and lefty-loosey the lockring. Shouldn't be on too tight. Only needs like 50nm of torque.

FreeWHEEL removal was discussed by Pierce: bench vise, put tool in facing up, place wheel on top, and lefty loosey using the rim for better leverage. Some of em are real bastages. :nod DAMHIK

If you are using 10 spd cassette, you will have to use 10 spd chain.

If you are using 9 spd cassetter, you can use 9 spd or 10 spd chain.

If you are using 10 spd chainrings, you can use 9 spd or 10 spd chain.

If you have 9 spd chainrings, you have to use 9 spd chain in order to have decent shifting.

I've never need a spacer on Shimano cassette body swapping between 9 spd and 10 spd cassettes.

Thanks for the info.

I went to Palo Duro canyon (Tx) for the "pain on the plains" race last weekend. The temps were in the low 50s for our 8:00 start time...absolutely beautiful.

We started out with a pretty strong group of 6 (19 total) for the first ~8 miles of the course....then they started dropping. I tried to hang with a buddy of mine but he pulled away in the hills. I finished 2nd in my class. This was one of my favorite courses in Tx for sure.

spare links?? I don't think I've ever broken a bicycle chain that was in any semblence of good repair. I did some 2 week tours hauling 60 lbs of camping crap up and down the coast of california, carried spare cables, spare tires and tubes, patch kits, but never a spare link. I've always assembled my chains with a chain punch, no master link required. I'd carry the little pocket sized Rivoli punch on a long ride just in case.

Depending on how worn your chains are.. most of the time you could get away swapping 8 spd and 9 spd chain links, your shifting performance may suffer a little but it would get you out of the woods so you could replace with new chain..

8 spd and 9 spd chain do not have the same connector pins, Shimano chains are meant to be connected by their designated chain pins..

I'm takin my girl out for a ride on saturday afternoon for the first time in MONTHS. My legs are gonna hurt something fierce.

I'm going to make it a point to get out 4 days a week until my birthday. If I can do that ill try to treat myself to something new, maybe replace by veloce set up with ultegra. But then I can get a new ultegra bike as cheap as I can get a gruppo.

Anyway wish me luck.

Since you run and cycle you ought to think about doing the Death Valley cup.

The Furnace Creek 508 is this weekend. I'll be there racing a tandem.
508 miles with 36,000ft of climbing. Should be a hoot!
