With that amount of torque on such a narrow bolt, or possibly in future one being very tight after years, I ended up getting all three Park Tools keys but it wasn't cheap, they are like £7 each. Got Green, red and black. I kept buying one more because the last colour I bought wasn't the right size :lol:
Only weird bikes are interesting anymore.

Was reading musson's book on the bus yesterday brucey. He agrees with you. Reckons the red spokey is what he uses for pretty much everything, with only very occasional recourse to the yellow. Says he has never used anything ekse. The 3.2 ice toolz i ordered (cheap from ebay) looks from the ad pic like the black one you showed upthread.
