My Rig's on the way. I'm sure I'm gonna want to change rear cogs, and looking at the bontrager website, it looks like a small cassette-sort of setup, not a thread on BMX style.
Two Questions: What cogs fit this hub? What tool removes the lockring? Gimme a Park tool number if you have it. thanks.

Any Shimano BMX cog will work. It is a steel freewheel body so no need to be concerned about the cog digging into the hub body.

You can remove the lockring with a pair of Channel locks which is kinda ugly or get any type of spanner wrench to remove it.

Any old cassette cogs, Chris King, Endless, Boone.

What tool removes the lockring?

Hook ring spanner wrench, I use a hozan.

Additional unasked for info

1, Lock ring is aluminum, and a bit soft. I have had some problems with it coming loose on the trail (once)
2, 16 clicks in freehub = ~ 5.7" of movement per click at the planet. some times I only get 15 clicks at that time ~ 11.4" of lost drive is a eye opener.
