    Comments about Nashbar Headset Cup Remover:

    I could have bought some pipe and made my own, but I would now own a bodge of a tool and a saw. This one just works and is much more affordable than other brands. Very happy. Two taps and out came the headset I wanted to reuse.

    Would not seat on the cups and always slid through the tube. Returned it and got the Park tool which worked like a charm!

    Comments about Nashbar Headset Cup Remover:

    Been a professional bike mechanic for over 20 years. Bought this one for at home because it looked a lot like the Park model at half the price. I've only had a chance to used this on bikes with a 1" headset so I'm not sure how effective it would be on 1-1/8". It workes fine on old Chicago Schwinns with thick steel headset cups but I have yet to remove a cup on a higher end frame with this. The prongs slip right off. Got tired of screwing with it and ordered the Park version last night. I may try bending or grinding the ends before I throw it away.

    How to fix it, OK when fixed

        Comments about Nashbar Headset Cup Remover:

        This tool would not stay seated against the bearing race; the problem was in the design. The end of the tools is square cut tubing so when the tool is in place, the inside edge is longer than the outside edge. This acts as a taper that pushes the tips inward when you use the tool. I fixed the tool by grinding a taper in its end so that the inside edge is shorter than the outside edge. When using the tool after the modification, the tangs are pushed outward instead of inward, and it easily removed my bearing races.

            I was a professional bicycle mechanic for many years more than 30 years ago. I am familiar with the park version of this tool which works very nicely. The Nashbar version does not work at all. I have yet to successfully remove a headset cup. Like the other reviews it just does not catch the edge of the headset cup and this is on old-style 1 inch headsets. I have not tried bending the tool but that will be my next modification. It should not need that out-of-the-box.

            More Nashbar (headset) tool woes. First was the crown race remover, now this. Actually there is a third issue which is the cup press. I have used Park tools and installed many w/o trouble. This tool tangs do not engage with the cups even after bending the tangs outward more. I had to insert a piece of 1" scrap carbon steerer into the tangs to "lock" them in place so the edges can engage with the cups for the punch operation.

              Seems to be a well made tool, for the home mechanic, but would not work for removing headset cups from my recumbent trike.

                The split ends do not flare out enough to catch the edges of the cups (used on a traditional 1 inch head tube, I suspect this is the case for 1 1/8 as well). So the tool doesn't work right out of the box, however the ends can be bent out a bit to make it work (I used a large pair of pliers, took less than 5 minutes).

                My LBS wanted $30 each to take out my headsets. I bought this in hopes it would work. It is made well and works well. I knocked out my king headsets in less than 15 sec each. I read from another review it was hard to use or the prongs were bent in. If that is the case just bend out the tabs...
