- Q & A
Function and Form
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I'm a tool geek. I'll buy tools that I may only use once per season, just because I think they look cool ... but the fact that they are beautiful does not diminish that I need my tools to work the way that I want them to, even if I'm not using them every day like shop mechanics.
This means that I'd rather have an ugly tool that does its job over a pretty tool that doesn't.
Abbey's dual Crombie and Chain Whip are top-notch in both function and form ... which is a rare, and welcome combination.
An excellent chain whip
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This tool goes perfectly in conjunction with the Abbey Crombie tool. The Crombie slides into the chain whip for compact storage or travel. The chain whip itself is very well built and does a good job of holding onto the cassette. As with other Abbey tools, contstruction quality is top notch.
Does this whip have the 1/2" plug for dual sided Crombie Tools or the 3/8" plug for single sided?
The description says that it's the "perfect complement to the dual sided Crombie tool" so I'm assuming that means it's 1/2" At least that's what I'm going on as I order it...
Does the Abbey Chain whip work on 11 spd cassetes? (Campy SR for example)?
