I have one - I am near CC - could mail to you, but they are cheap @ any decent tool supplier they are made by Lisle and are adjustable. The MAIN thing you need to do is loosen the upper triple clamp before you try to loosen it - the squeeze from the triple clamp (when tight) makes it very difficult to loosen the top nut. A way that will work fine is to put 2 punches (or drill bits upside down) into the holes (they need to fit snug) and use a flat screw driver on the punches to unscrew the top - it should not be very tight, unless an unknowing gorilla got ahold of it - the o - ring seals it - the tightening just keeps it from falling out (which won't happen once the triple clamp is tightened).

I have a adjustable spanner im sure will work, U should be able to get one off of the tool trucks also, Like Radar said U can make one also be carefull dont wanna mar up those caps, get bits that fit tight and get as close as possible to the nut, the adj. ones are cool and fit lots of things and cheap, might even try a heavy duty set of snap ring pliers

if this would work I have one and can swing by with it after work:
Motion Pro Shock Spanner Wrench

if i found the right specs for it, it works on 68mm and 87mm spanners.
