    Anyone got any tips for getting my headset out of the frame, the metal inserts in the head tube have a lip over them that stops you knocking them out. I really fancy getting a slack set but won’t bother if I’m going to knacker my frame getting the old one out.


    Its a piece of cake mate. Look inside the headtube from the top remove the top bearing. Use a large flat head screwdriver and angle it just under the lip give it a little tap with a hammer and move round gradually tapping and it will drop out. I have changed mine 3 times without any damage to frame or headset.


    Cheers for that I will have a look at the weekend.

    Mine was slightly fiddly but came out with a drift without too much fuss (the trusty motorbike axle)
