I'm also a long time bmx rider, hell, I remember when the Potts mod was invented
, remember the ACS rotor? What a nightmare that was. :eekster:
I've never had a star nut fail on me, but first thing I did when buying my first 26" a couple of months ago was strip it down to the last bolt and rebuild it, all the kids working are bike shops around here are completely inept.
I had to buy quite a few tools specific to 26" to do this, and am trying to avoid buying any more as I really need to save for new forks.
I could try and borrow the tool but the kids down at the LBS are not allowed to touch my bike. :nono:
Since I plan on replacing the forks anyway, I figured a head doctor or head locker is not a bad idea.
Honestly, right now running with no star nut or cap at all, just made an allthread tool for setting preload. I like it this way as the cable has more room to move as the forks compress.
Hollow head doctor would be much prettier though.
