I am going to take my frame to the powdercoater tomorrow, so I need to take the bike apart. Do I need any special tools to take out the headset? If not, what should I use? I have a rubber mallet and I can get a wooden or plastic dowel from home depot.

Thanks :thumbsup:

FYI, my LBS charges $8-10 to remove a headset and crown race and they'll do it while I wait. If you don't own the necessary tools, it's probably best to let someone who does do the work... especially if your bike has a nice headset installed. Why risk screwing it up?
