So need to fit my new headset I was a bit stuck as to how to remove the crown race. The Rockshox I had originally had a hadn't dimple to get a flat bladed screwdriver under but my Fox don't.
Not wish to spend a fortune on a specialist tool and failing to get even a narrow bladed flat screwdriver in without risking damage to (the finish at least) of the fork crown I spotted in my toolbox a nice wood chisel.
Perfect, flat bottomed with a nice wedge shape going to a very fine edge - a gentle (and I mean gentle - don't want to risk damage to the fork) tap with a rubber mallet a couple of times and off she comes.
Completely f***ed the edge on the chisel but hey, I'got a whetstone and know how to hone...
Usual caveats, try this yourself and you may damage the fork crown / steerer, you may die, cause the world to end or the internet to stop working.
Worked a treat for me though...
Any one else got a tool bodge they wish to share?
