Help on installing a threadless headset(3 posts)

Help on installing a threadless headsetPaul
Nov 21, 2001 4:32 AM
I want to do the job myself. I've seen the bearing cup press in Colrado Cyclist, and was wondering if you install one cup at a time, or do both simultaneously? Also, the tool for installing the fork crown headset race, will this tool work on both 1" and 1 1/8" race? Is the tool a hollow tube? Can you use something else? Just wondering if there is anyone with experience and some tips on how to do this.

thanks
Paul

Generally, I would recommend pressing both cups at the same time.
