It’s Tool Time…(Contd)

There’s a bunch of ‘heavy’ stuff going on at Goat Central, hence the lack of Blog posts but here’s a quick update on the continuing ‘Tool Time’ post from a few weeks back .

The second task on that list (M100 ‘Dale – Remove 1 1/4″ Chris King NoLogo (bike being sold)) is now complete and I have this beautiful 3DV King No-Logo headset back in the spares box. Harsh economic times says sell this badboy but my heart says I should keep it stashed as locating another one of these would cost $$$ if I ever have another 3DV project

It’s Tool Time…

“Does everybody know what time it is?”
It’s Tool Time but sadly I have no “Tool Time girl” to assist me with my duties….

Ok, so there’s a mega ‘Headset switchfest’ due to take place here at Goat Central, here’s the moves, try and keep up

EWR – Switch Chris King Devolution for Chris King Classic (now I have the correct forks..)
M100 ‘Dale – Remove 1 1/4″ Chris King NoLogo (bike being sold)
Funk Pro Comp – Switch non period-correct Chris King Classic for Chris King NoLogo
M700 ‘Dale – Remove remains of WTB Greaseguard headset (bike being sold).

I like to use the correct tools instead of Caveman Techniques when I can so the following weapons will be deployed…Star Nut Tool, Headset removal tool, Headset Press.


Last nights job was the EWR, the current Accutrax have been sold to another collector and I need to convert back to 1 1/8″ headset so I can use my new Accutrax

“More power!”

Brakes off

Magura mounts off

Bars and stem off

Just the pesky crown race to remove

No more riding my EWR for a while
