Pros

A well made strong precision tool. It is surprising how many bicycle frames are bent in the rear triangle and dropouts. Perfect realignment can be obtained with this tool using slight pressure on it's long lever arms. l always align the rear dropout flats with it first, then use the Park derailleur hanger alignment tool before attempting to set up any rear index derailleur. It is simple to use and easy to tell you have done the job correctly. Works well on steel frames.

Cons

It can only allow an alignment check on carbon frames since carbon will not bend to accept cold setting. Your friends will want to borrow it.

Other Thoughts

Get the derailleur hanger alignment tool at the same time to do the whole job.

StarStarStarStarStar Cold-set an old frame

by
Ownership: more than a year

Pros

Good for bending steel dropouts back into shape.

Cons

One of the dropouts later broke with heavy use.

Other Thoughts

I cold-set a few old steel frames to fit modern wheels. (As Sheldon Brown recommends) At first I didn't bother about straining the dropouts after, but my axel broke 200 miles later, so I bought this. It's a good gauge to see if the dropouts are parallel, and has the leverage to tweak steel dropouts back into shape. A few thousand miles later my frame cracked near the drive side dropout. I guess I bent the metal too much. I did use the bike for touring and commuting before it finally broke.
