Campy tool question?

by adeyho   November 13, 2008  

Got my new Campag Chorus 11's yesterday (very nice indeed)
I take it I will need to get a new tool to fit the ultra torque external BB cups ? and also the cassette lock ring..

you need the ultra torque bb cup tool. natch. Smile

not sure about the lockring? doesn't look like a splined one and it says '11 speed only on it', but i can't see a special tool for it anywhere...

Hello matey, you can't hide...

(whisper it quietly) a Shimano external BB tool also fits the Campy cups, you may need the Campy allen key doodah (i used to ne a techie, honest) to tighten the cranks together tho. You will certainly need a Campy compatible lockring tool.

You'll be pleased to know I have the lot and will arrange delivery to your work thru the good mates mail network we have on request Wink

In my mind I thought I should have a day out and bring you some cakes and Mrs mooseman some flowers and have a building party!! and let you practice being an engineer again!!

Seems like a cracking plan Grommit. Wrap it up, I'll take it (Pannetone of course Wink )

Vintage steel with modern Campy, I like it.
