    Aftermarket Axle Wrench

    Ok... so does anyone make a decent quality 19mm and 22mm axle wrench in the same configuration as the oem wrench? I see Cruz Tools does not. Neither does MotionPro. I see lots of original wrenches on Ebay... but what the heck...

    Every bike comes new with an axle wrench in its' tool kit. Find a friend who has kept the tools when he sold a bike and see if he has one that fits.

    Go buy two of the cheapest combination wrenches you can find, cut them in half and have someone weld two halves together to make a 19/22 with a box on each end. Is that what you're trying to accomplish?

    Just buy a 19mm socket and comfortable ratchet, then a 22mm box wrench. It's a great combo for the tires. The large 22mm box wrench gives you plenty of leverage to hold onto the nut while the ratchet/socket combo loosens the axle.

    And if the axle nut is stubborn, just wire the ratchet to the fork and use your body weight to step down on the box wrench to break it loose. Worked great for me when trying to change Charlotte's front wheel by myself.

    With a slight modification, the stock wrench will work just fine. What you don't get stock is leverage. A bracket for a tire iron changes that. Stock wrench is short and easy to pack and a set to tire irons can come in handy. Just tightened my rear axle with this setup tonight.
    Take care my Friend.........

    Get a part time job strangling cows at a slaughterhouse. You will develop a grip that can use any size wrench for any nut.

    After a few years, you might not even need the wrench.
