I've just bought a lovely CK inset mixer headset to replace the FRM one on my Lurcher but you can't get the 1.5 cup remover to get a purchase on the old cups due a shamfer making it impossible for the flanges on the tool to open up, there's just enough room to get a thin screwdriver on to the lip of the cup but i'm sure i'm asking for trouble in trying this bodge it method with a carbon frame ? Any helpful responses would be greatly appreciated thanks..
anyone removed headset cups from an On One Lurcher ?
Screwdriver and mallet is ok if you just work round the cup and take your time. It's the same on the carbon 456.
Thanks Andy, I did start trying it with a screwdriver but I bottled it but I'll give it another go ?
Old seatposts come in handy for this (more contact area), as soon as you can get onto the outside of the cup switch to knocking it from the outside.
