Expensive and not needed. While the screwdriver method doesn't work very well, alexrex20's method works very well without damaging crown, steerer, or race. I use a variation on it myself using a razor blades. You tap the edge of the blade between the race and crown, taking turns doing at three or four points around it. Once you have enough space, you can simply put the tip of screwdriver into the now big enough gap and pop the race off.RudeSechsVibe said:Use a proper tool to remove the crown race.
