I'm considering buying this ... paced.aspx

Does anyone know if they come with a lockring?

What cassette removal tool is need to attach it ? Shimano I guess ?

Do Shimano tools remove Campag cassettes ?

I did try phoning the shop, but got their answer machine......


  • They come with a lockring.
    They use a Shimano cassette too.
    I don't think a Shimano tool will remove a Campag cassette lockring.

    I dont need a Campag tool to take my old cassette off the Aksiums. It's Shimano !!!

    A Shimano lockring tool WILL work with Campag, that's what I was using for years. I only bought a Campag one when I needed to fit a Centaur bottom bracket and the Shimano tool was too short to reach over the axle.

    What ratio are you intending to buy ?

    I only ask because I have an 11-23 version that is surplus to requirements - Shimano splined with campag spacing and complete with locking - would sell for £20 + postage if it suited you.
