Sorry yes have two bikes two forks to be fitted.
I see i will need a star tool.
What is a 'Star tool' ? Never seen one in 20 years of building bikes, not to say they are probably not very useful, but a bit of wood and a few minutes of careful tapping with a hammer while drinking tea and listening to the radio does the trick.
the bottom race is also very tight fit.
Thats the idea ! Tighter the better, that's why you need to knock it into place with a hammer and a bit of wood and not simply slide it into position.
I don't want to take to a shop. London shops charge the earth plus don't do a good job. So i end up doing it my self.
I have had a RC31 installed by a bike shop in London, scratches on the crown and needed to be tightened within hours (seriously). Not great for Â£35.
