    ...arrived from Wiggle today: a mighty headset crown race installing tool. Twelve and a half inches long, thick, heavy and black, it looks as though it could belong to King Kong and makes any fork that sees it shudder in anticipation :smile:

    I winced as I wacked the end of it with a big hammer, but it did the trick :becool:
