    He put a link in an earlier post but I couldn’t find the press on the linked site. I too would love to know where I could get it for that price.

    @avdave2 Look for bearing press.

    Don’t like that your address data is all entered unencrypted. Could be anyone you’re giving the details to.

    Yep , eu-bikeshop is the place to go.

    I saw them on ebay first and thought I would have a look to see if they have a webstore too(which they do).

    The prices on the webstore seem slightly cheaper than their ebay store(probably to cover ebay costs)

    All seems genuine enough I had prompt email replies,emails to say order received/dispatched inc Tracking no’s.

    And can’t fault there prices,link to headset press below

    Paid via Paypal as well. How long did it take to turn up? Did you say 3 working days?

    curiousyellow – how much did it cost you with the postage? I’m certainly tempted, I’ve made a home made press but found it struggles with the initial line up and ended up using the rubber mallet to start it off.

    1.56 to the pound. Ordered some other kit too.

    Took about 5 days for the postage which I don’t think is unreasonable especially with the cost savings involved.

    Postage for me was $15.99 which was for a Pedal wrench,Chain Tool and the Headset press was is a couple of Kilos on its own.

    The headset press is definetly a good bit of kit I don’t know how it compares to others but makes fitting a doddle.

    I have used a mallet and block of wood in the past and also a home made creation with threaded bar,all seem to work to varying degrees but the proper tool is much easier and more professional and for me as I intend to do more bikebuilding and repair work is a worthy investment.

    Definitely not unreasonable. Ordered on 29th, dispatched today. Let’s see when it turns up.

    Turned up today. Looks like it was held up for over a week in the UK!
