Cone Wrenches and Other Hub Tools

Cone Wrenches

Cone wrenches are thin open-end wrenches, and should only be used for cones. They need to be thin to fit the cones, and as a result, they are not as strong as general purpoose wrenches.

Some hubs, such as Shimano Dura-Ace and most Campagnolo Italian-made models have locknuts that also require a cone wrench, but if your locknuts are hexagonal, you should use a general-purpose wrench for the locknuts.
