Yesterday my friend called me up, and asked if I could replace some spokes in his rear wheel. I went to his house, and realized I needed a freewheel remover. I looked online for the correct one but can't find it any where. It is a sram. I don't know what model. Does any freewheel remover work?

If you make it idiot proof they will just invent a better Idiot!

There is a funky Campy tool that is very similar, but most cassettes use the standard tool. Some are small and intended to be gripped with a wrench. Others have a long handle attached. What you also need is a cassette wrench which holds the cassette with a short piece of chain on a long handle. If you have some kind of vertical wooden structure, (I've used doorways and work bench legs.) You can jam a few sprocket teeth into it to turn against. Oh, and a six pack usually gets it done too.
