I have generally always used split race headsets so installing the crown race is easy. Before that I used the gentle application of a screwdriver and a mallet.
However I have a fancy headset I don't want to damage which doesn't have a split race.
Crown race installation tools are comedy expensive so I was thinking of using some waste water pipe. Would 32mm size work ok on a 1.1/8th steerer?
Any experiences or other gentle methods to use?
