Postby NorwichVelo » 8 Nov 2018, 8:36pm

Has anybody got one of these for sale or loan to copy please it's for the Cycone or VX GT rear mechs for the nut that holds on the cage/jockey wheels.

Please.

I can find reference to this on-line as a "Kingsbridge sprung pivot locknut tool", I have no idea where to source one.

You need a suntour cage removal tool. TA-270
Some pics here. https://blog.goo.ne.jp/kino55crazy55/e/ ... ec960638f2
You may have to make one. Grind down a socket or try a bent spoke?
Ps when displayed I have an option at the bottom of the screen to show Japanese or English. :wink:
At the last count:- Focus Variado, Peugeot 531 pro, Dawes Discovery Tandem, 2 Dawes Kingpins, Falcon K2 MTB dropped bar tourer, On One Pompino, Longstaff trike conversion on a Falcon corsa. :D

That's the one I tried tooling a socket but it was not good enough or more likely my skills to fashion it weren't I use a bent spoke currently that was easier to tool but I thought if some had the tool and not the mechs they might part with one or loan so I can get one made.

Slightly confused, is it the same tool that sits in the back of the Chainring Bolts (with Allen key at the front?) In which case there's a few on fleabay .

(Pictures 14 and 15) and I think you are trying to release the lower jockey which (if memory serves) has a disc with 2 slots.

If you are trying to relese the whole cage, most standard sockets have a taper at the end to make it easy to get it on to the nut/bolt , if you only have a thin nut you might do better with an open ended spanner unless you can grind the taper off the socket.

What are you actually trying to achieve? Cage swap? Jockey wheel swap?
