It kinda threw me for a minute. I've never taken the cassette off before. I got my fancy lockring tool all set up, and my cassette holder in place, and the thing just started spinning. I was like, "wtf?!"
My lockring tool is actually a socket style, but I didn't have a socket to fit. I just tightened it with a crescent wrench to "pretty damn tight."
