So just got delivery of my planet X ct45's wanted to get them on the bike before Sunday's ride.

I need to get the cassette (Shimano 105) off AXIS 2.0 and get them onto the ct45 is it possible to do this without the locking? If so, how?

Thanks.

    No you need a shimano cassette tool and a chain whip to hold the cassette whilst you unscrew it. Time for a trip to your local bike shop!

    Thanks saved me lots of time.

    Bought a cheap toolkit from Halfords as it was my closet place, watched a youtube video and within minutes the cassette was swapped over. Looking forward to tomorrow ride all that much more now.
