thanks for the advice. it ended up being a cassette (based on the park tools site, I didnít know the difference). So I think it uses the FR-5.2 from Park tools based on their images.

I didnít see much difference between a cone wrench and a normal crecent. Is there a reason I canít use normal wrenches? I guess Iíll find out when the cassette removal tool comes. Iíll take a look at the front too. Iíll keep posting pics. This will hopefully be interesting for someone later to watch the whole process.
