When you (accurately!) place a bead in the race, the bead contracts as it cools, shrinking the inside diameter of the race enough so that the race may pop out.

Of course, Beater, if you put a bead on the frame and not the race, you're in a world of pain.

I used a cat's paw, carpenter's tool for pulling nails. Its a little smaller than your avg crowbar, but same idea. Popped the races right out.

OK. Steering head races removed. Now ... how do you get the old race off the 'new' triple? Same process?



The old race on the 'new' triple:

Could you heat the exterior race with your MAPP torch. You may have some success if you can drop some dry ice down the steerer tube. I'd think you want to take advantage of heat expansion/contraction.

Whaddya think?

I went there ... didn't do the cooling bit tho. I'll give it a try ... the science seems sound ...
