I’ve been wanting a Derailleur Hanger Adjuster tool for like a half decade. This might push me to get one.

Really? The DAG-2.2 is merely a continuation of the previous version, and equally unimpressive- try putting one inside a proper mechanic’s box. Great for shop rats, but otherwise… meh.

A hanger tool is a once-on-a-lifetime purchase, and Abbey deservedly got my money.

What, not holding out for that arcane hanger technology to be obsoleted?

“In the case of a ceased cap, an 8mm hex wrench can be used for leverage through the back of the tool.” I think you mean “seized?”

I hope the new DAG 2.2 has better tolerances. The previous one is pretty much useless on modern drivetrains. Unless you like sticking a piece of paper around the pivot assembly to shim it tighter every few weeks to make it somewhat useful.

My Park DAG has so much play, it’s terrible. Anyone else see this? Anyone else figured out something to help get rid of some of the slop?

I feel the CDI TorqControl torque wrench is far superior to the ATD-1 parker Tool as it goes to a low 2nm to the 8nm and comes with a calibration certificate at a lower price.

Good to see the INF-2 but you failed to mentioned the improved head and guage that hopefully won’t break within the first week of use like the INF-1. (deleted)

Hanger tools are very easy to make and more precise than the Park tool.

People have this much trouble with the DAG tool? Maybe be a better wrench.

I like the way the Abbey tool measuring arm swings away, vs. the little rubber o-rings on the DAG-2.

If you want to support a small business and get a much nicer alignment gauge look at Abbey bikes works HAG-hanger alignment gauge. I also have proudly parted with my money to get one of these gems.

I filed some small flats into cap tool of my BBT-9, but I thought they were plastic specifically to prevent people from using too much torque.

Don’t get me wrong, the BBT-10.2 is a nice shop tool and a lot less likely to disappear under a bench, but given a hammer, everything starts looking like a nail.

Zzzzzzz…. Park makes too many inferior tools, they lost my $. While the DAG is passable, when you hold the tool you can’t help but feel like quality is not a priority.

I really wanted to like the Park INF inflator but after the 3rd replacement only lasted 2 weeks I gave up on it.

@gino – I sincerely doubt your DAG is more worn than the one in my shop that’s been in business 30 years. When it gets wiggly, I use a flat head screwdriver to jam the grub screw down to take up slack. Works fine for work, and for my personal my 11s drivetrain.

But the shaft has been thickened for better strength!

The last inflator was garbage and Park didn’t stand behind it at all. They told me I wasn’t supposed to drop the inflator. Thanks for the tip customer service! Get an EVT or make something yourself for half the price that actually works.

The other way to get ceased shimano crank caps off is to take apart the plastic one that comes with the normal park tool, drill two holes in it, and use a pin spanner for added leverage. Free if you already have that tool.

We purchased an Abby last year when we ran into a problem trying to use the “new” DAG2 on bikes like Pivot MACH. Park had no remedy for us so, we bought the Abby. We’ve made our money back already. The DAG2 still hasn’t paid for itself.

All of our CDI Torqcontrol tools died in less than a year at our shop, and sounded like they were breaking every time they were used. No thanks. These new Park ones seem well thought out. Same goes for the Shimano nut tool.

The biggest obstacle in torque wrench accuracy during use is technique. Most people who use torque wrenches, including master mechanics, probably overtorque by about 5% of wrench range due to poor technique. I work in a cal lab and it takes a lot of practice to be able to pull a wrench to snap at a given torque when compared to the rotary table built into the torque tester.
