You want to do that you get a freewheel remover made of steel, from Park Tool or Shimano, and a long wrench for more leverage, also made of steel. It makes a most satisfying 'ping!' as the threads free their grip.
This is a better wrench to go with the 1" fitting on most Park Tool pieces, but I couldn't see paying four times as much.
Thanks to Japan's witlessness, I have taught myself another skill and bought myself useful tools: never to need to ask a shop here or home to do it for me again. Yet again, online ordering was the only useful solution: I'd foolishly wasted time looking in bike shops and even asking one to do the the job for me. Rather, I asked my J-wife to translate for me what I wanted. The idiot did what Japanese 'professionals' always do: pretend authority, yet know nothing.
As he reaches into a tool box of 100円 shop tools. Yet again, I nearly had a fight with my wife telling her to be polite but we are leaving the shop because I know far more than this idiot.There is no special tool for that. I have to hammer it off.
But he's a bike mechanic. Are you sure you know what you're talking about?(I did not answer) Did you see the fucking tool chest or not? I may not have taken 'the test', but I am Gaijin, I teach myself and I improvise. I don't use the same broken codes for the whole war.
