Can someone please tell me what tool I need to remove the lockring and cog from this wheel? It is the OEM rear wheel from a 2009 Kona Unit. I can't seem to figure out what tool will fit this lockring. Thank you.

Along with a chain whip, I think this is what you need. Looks to be about the right size. (8 indents on your lock ring & 8 nipples on the tool)

It's meant for bottom brackets but might very well be dual purpose... can someone back me up on this?

I was instructed to leave the wheel inplace on the bike and use a screwdriver and experimental tapping to losen the ring. My buddy was right as mine was barely tigher than hand tight to begin with. You will know right away, so dont overdo it.
