Very small, light weight, and cost effective tool.
Made from plastic means it's not indestructibleOverall Review: When looking for a solid quality crankset at a reasonable price, Shimano's Hollow Tech II crank line-up is pretty hard to beat. When picking up your first Shimano Hollow Tech II crankset however, many people don't understand that the tensioning bolt has a very unique interface which requires a specific tool to properly install and remove the crank (the Shimano Hollow Tech II Crank Tool.) Quality: Made of a high quality plastic, the interface slides nicely into the tension bolt for quick and easy removal.

One company that you may not have heard from, yet has recently been turning quite a few heads, is Project 321.

Waiting on the short cage version for the DH bike application - the wait, if that's bad.Overall Review: Just want to comment on the Box's rear der integration with the e13 TRS 9t cog's. I too had an initial issue with tuning the Box shifting with my TRS cassette in the 9t cog. Otherwise, on a standard cassette with either a 10 or 11t cog, it's great. The trick for me was a combo of getting just the right chain tension derived from cutting the chain length just to the absolute minimum length and fiddling with the B tension adjustment. It's been running smooth and good on my Intense Spider275c with e13 TRSr 9-46 cassette. I'm building up the new Tracer so I'm hoping for the same success I had with the Spider.
