- Crown race removal shashafasnnnnnn grrrrrrrr!
I gave up . . . .
The Cane creek s8 crown race seems to have a rubber ring under and to it’s outer extremity, that makes it very difficult to get a gap at all to work on, anyone else had this problem? Where the minimal gap is or should be is bunged by this rubber . . .
I’m considering trying to get the rubber part off, so I can get under it properly, but it does appear to be integrated as an integral part of the race?
Just watched a you-tube video, but their crown race didn’t have this rubber bit on!Posted 8 years agoziwiMember
If you do it often, get one of these – only £20 and they do the job brilliantly – including those rubbery Cane Creek ones…may not help you today though.
If you live in surrey – happy to helpPosted 8 years agojamesoSubscriber
old knife blade and rubber mallet here
that’s the way to do it.. eases it off without risk of slippage messing up your fork. I find a (cutlery) knife blade and a small hammer used lightly to avoid knocking it into the actual steerer works well, then gently drift it off with the hammer and something blunt.Posted 8 years ago
