Strengths:    Simple tool, does the job, works fine.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
could use a couple flathead screwdrivers and a hammer, but i guess this is the safer more professional way, so it works fine. gave it a 4 for value just because it is such a simple tool and almost seems like you could make one yourself for $1.50 in scrap metal/tubing.

Strengths:    Bang! Headset off

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Simple design yet ingenious. And alot easier than using the old hammer and block method. Just slide the bar in the headtube, squeeze the "fingers", let go, and whack! You're done. Can't get any easier. But for a measly metal bar, is it really worth $28?
