A friend in Oz has SRAM DualDrive hubs on his recumbent trikes. The cassette lockring tools owned by his bike shop are designed around QR or through axles only. The central hole in the tool can accommodate a 10mm short axle but the DualDrive has a 10.5mm dia. long axle (uses axle nuts) which doesn’t fit through the tool’s hole. The tools are hardened, so drilling them out is not trivial. Which company makes a Shimano-compatible lockring tool with a large enough central hole to fit a 10.5mm dia. long axle through?

Hi,

Do you mean something like this?:

That is just open in the middle.

Probably but there is limited opportunity to see it in the flesh. Asking for ‘known good’ tools seemed like a viable shortcut.
