I too put a small kink in the leaves then filled the ends to remove the sharp edges. A good trick is when installed, insert a piece of broom handle / cut-off steerer / cut-off seat-post / object of right diameter up into the removal tool to splay the leaves out more and stabilise it.

Out of reference, what tool and what head-tube length is it?


Icetoolz £10 job but the headtube is only 90cm - the tool is so far out from catching the cup that this is going to need a fair amount of the leaves cutting off - i'll get the fitters at work to do it on monday - they'll do a decent job and no sharp edges and completely squared off.

Good idea on the broom handle - I haven't got anything of the right diameter though but i'll remember that tip!
