I'm sitting in my flat trying to fit a pair of exotic carbon forks to a road rat. I have Allen keys , screwdrivers and a hammer. The bottom race is off the original Cotic forks and now I have to try and seat it on the new forks.
I could try and seat the race by tapping around a the inner edge with a screwdriver
I could add extra spacers under the stem and then hit the top of the stem / steerer with a hammer. With a block of wood in between
Or I could take it to the local German bike shop!
I also have to lengthen the hydraulic hose on some magura brakes as well. Are they easy to bleed tool less ?
Or is the LGBS the best option?
