Think I might just bite the bullet and buy some proper headset tools.
Always thought it would be cheaper just to nip to my LBS....but I seem to be changing them more than I thought I would :roll:
Anyway.....any recommendations? Can't afford a Park Press at £120 :shock:
What about this
or this :lol:
Cheers, Carl

No problem with the third one if you ask me. Back in my day we had nowt but a big hammer and some 2x4...... :wink: :lol:

Seriously, if you're putting in a King or something like that I'd get the LBS to do it as they are most likely to have all the CK extra gubbins that of course is never supplied (much like Royce BBs). No chance of you breaking anything and feeling totally s**t about it. Most places do it for about £20.

Just my 2p
