I am putting together my first tapered headset (Cane Creek on a standard 1 1/8" steerer) and am having a mind ****. It's been a long hard week so far at work in my defence.
I can't get the crown race to seat down onto the aluminimum adapter at the bottom - I have one of those big heavy metal things that go over the steerer for bashing crown races on, but its diameter is too small for the bigger crown race. I stopped myself from bashing it on with a screwdriver point as it kept going on skewwoof and I realised that I was damaging it.
I thought about some plastic pipe of the right size but it'll be a week until I can get to a suitable shop.
Any ideas using something I may have to hand?
