Removing (and destroying a freewheel)

Often freewheels on cheap mass-manufactured bicycles do not have notches and so do not allow a freewheel removal tool to engage. It is still possible to get the freewheel off. Doing so will, however, will destroy the freewheel in the process.

You will need:
A hammer!
A screw driver
A big wrench / fixed gear lockring wrench
