Anybody familiar with pin spanner wrenches? Example would be the park tools spa-1. I donít know what happened to mine, maybe it broke a long time ago, but they arenít needed much these days. Pretty much only when working on older bicycles. I posted here because itís a tool and Iím not sure but it may have wider use than just bikes.

Other than the industry standby of park tool, does anybody have a recommendation for this? Ideally Iíd like a shop quality tool which is adjustable to fit bottom brackets as well as freewheels... but that may be asking a lot.

High quality from Facom. This is Cheaper than Amazon which does not include pins.

Ah but I was hoping... The pins are far too thick for my application. Looks like the application specific Park Tool units range between 2.2-2.9mm pin diameter.

My search for a suitable toll with which to retract the brake piston on my sister's 2012 Mazda3 brought me to this two month old thread.

I was looking for the cheaper style "cube" but the old variety does not cover the "modern" Mazdas.

Where would you look.

I have the set that Trav mentioned. Used it on my Mazda 3's rear brakes. It works fine. I think I paid like $50 though. $20 for the set seems like a great deal!
