Hand impact wrenches that you use with a hammer have worked for me before I
got air tools.

Removing the front sprocket is a bit problematic. I found it virtually
impossible to loosen the nut without the use of a air wrench. Using the
rear brake with the chain still attached will not keep the wheel from
rotating when you apply sufficient torque to break it loose. On my first
replacement I tried all kinds of things and finally was only succesful when
I found a pneumatic wrench.
I have an air compressor and air wrench which will do the trick if you want
to bring it to my garage.
