a jump bike just cuz it has a rizer and oury grips?
think your mention of "cracked" might have jinxed me a little.
went to strip off all parts so that i can strip off the paint. the bb was a little tough to get going but was fine afterwards. the un72 bb still had a $55 price tag stuck to it.
next moved onto the stem, no issues there. fork popped off and proceeded to the HS. lower cup came out by hand. "that's not too good" i thought.
top needed the normal and expected tap out to remove.
last think was to take off the race off the fork. now having seen/heard that XTR race being somewhat fragile, i was a little hesitant about doing it, but i thought it had to be done so i can strip the fork properly and repaint if necessary. went with a VERY light and gentle tap to get a feeler, and to my dismay… the race split in and half and fell off the fork immediately. this tap was as light as tapping my finger onto table!!!
i was so surprised that all i could do was chuckle and mumble to myself "you got to be kidding me".
so anyone have a spare XTR M902 1-1/4" race??? or a complete headset, doesn't have to be XTR?
anyway, frame and fork are now ready to be paint stripped. located the serial number in the drop out as well.
