    WTF!

    Where can you get 21, 24, and 25mm thin wrenches?

    Hadley needs the 21 & 25

    RockShox needs the 24

    For the 21, buy a 19mm cone wrench and file it out to 21mm. That's what I did for my Hadley. Works like a charm.

    Go-Ride has the hadley service kit with all tools required for $70. Steep yes, but if you have multiple sets of hadleys its worth the investment.

    I just took some Craftsman wrenches and ground them down then smoothed out the edges and polished 'em up. You can also get some wrenches form Harbor Freight to grind down for a fraction of the price of one cone wrench.

    You do however need a good grinder.
