My R3 doesn't come with even the shadow of any tool, I would say the R2 probably doesn't either. If you mean the wrench for the tyre nut, it should be M4 nut.

R2 doesn't come with any tools. If you buy the Ti screw set from Steve, it comes with a wrench.

Tis true but out of stock. He has another set in his ''racer's corner'' which are standard hex heads. Maybe i'll just pick up a stainless kit from rcscrewz.

So any tips on how to get a real smooth drivetrain? Any other first timer tips would help too.
