I know its shoddy, but TBH it will be a useful tool to have as I found last week when I had to strip down my freehub and clean it all.

The chain whip is only used to undo the cassette tensioning nut. To tighten it, the ratchet mechanism of the freehub will hold it.

Its a simple job, and nowt to worry about.

You need tool 2. Both do the job but the shorter one allows you to tighten the nut on the quick release axle while the tool is in place. This ensures the tool's tiny teeth are set in place before wrenching off the lockring. Undo the nut after releasing the quick release lever, take off the conical spring and slip the tool into place. Screw the nut back on and the tool therefater will work efficiently with a shifter.
