Real tools for real mechanics.

Abbey makes bike tools for serious mechanics and folks who really care about quality, and the SL Dual-Sided Crombie Tool puts your standard wrench-and-lockring combo to shame. The stainless-steel handle is thinner than the standard Crombie, saving 124g for the traveling mechanics without sacrificing leverage or durability, and the dual-sided design works with Shimano, SRAM, and Campagnolo cassettes, so one is all you'll need.

  • Stainless steel
  • Compatible with Shimano, SRAM, and Campagnolo cassettes
  • Item #ABY0003

It's the right tool

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I service a small fleet of personal bikes and many of my friends' and neighbors' bikes, as well. Removing and replacing cassettes is a common thing for me. Why buy two tools to do one job—a lock ring tool and a wrench to remove EITHER a Shimano or Campy ring—when you can buy one tool that does two jobs—this tool that removes both a Shimano AND a Campy ring? (You'd need a chain whip or equivalent no matter what so I'm not counting that.) It's lightweight, fits comfortably in hand, has enough leverage to do the job, and is compact enough to fit inside a travel toolbox or tool roll. The tolerances are great and I expect it to last. This may be more expensive than a Park lockring tool and a cheap wrench. But good tools save you money in increased efficiency, and help prevent you from destroying your equipment...or the tool itself, for that matter. Have I been drinking the Jeff Crombie/Abbey Tools kool-aid? Maybe. They may not build every tool for every job, but every tool they build is tight and bomb-proof, and this one is no exception. This is the right tool for this job.

Best tool in my arsenal

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I loved this tool so much that I went out and bought my own. It's hands down the best tool I've ever owned. You might think, "why do I need a $55 lock ring tool?" Well folks, because its freaking convenient and easy to use. No more with silly adapters. Worth every penny to me!
