Game Clock and start of Tour Down Under
Could anyone give me a list of tools I will need to do this. I have a very limited (i.e. a multi-tool) tool kit at the moment and would like to put on a new cassette. Cheers, Simon

you'll need a cassette removal tool but that is about it.

....... and a chain whip. The chain whip stops the cassette spinning on the free wheel while you undo the lock ring with the splined cassette tool.

Make sure you get a Campag pattern cassette tool not a Shimano one....

I would do on a new cassette you could use the old chain to hold the cassette and save on a chain whip but if you are borrowing then the whip is better.
