- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

I'm having trouble fastening my discs on my dt-swiss centerlock hubs. They have 9mm qr's and I'm told to get the hubcap out before I fasten the lockring with a normal cassette-lockring-removing-tool.
If I don't remove the hubcap, I can't get my tool far enough in the lockring to get enough grip to loosen (or tighten) the discs...

Were they correct? And how do I get the hubcap off?

Best thing to do is to go to a shop and get a new, current lockring tool. It will have a deeper bore to go over hub endcaps and still reach the splines.
