Hello, I am having trouble getting the cassette off of a wheel that I recently acquired. I am not using a chain whip, I have seen people get cassettes off without them. Specifically, I am having trouble getting the lockring off of the top of the cassette. There is a picture included to show the shape of the ring that I cannot remove, does anyone know how I get this sucker off?

Thank you.

You need the right tools. You will need the chain whip as well as the right tool to remove the cassette. This is one of those jobs that trying to do it with what you have is counter productive.

If you can only get one tool, get the lock ring tool and use a piece of old bike chain as a chain whip, but if its really stuck you are going to need the whip to get it off anyway.
