    Swapping bearing races fork

    I just got new fork but it did not come with the bearing race that goes on the steerer tube and goes against the bottom of the headset. How do I get my old one off and put it on the new forks?

    It should just slide off the steerer tube and then just slide it right on the new one. At least mine did.

    It was pressed on their pretty tight, but with some tools and finesse I got it off and lubed it so I could press it on the new forks.

    Getting those races off can be a huge pain sometimes. I've always just gently tapped them from below, using a hammer and a flathead screw driver that I filed to make a little duller, so as not to gouge the race. Putting it on the new fork requires a PVC pipe large enough to fit over the steerer tube and a mallet, preferably a sand-filled dead-blow type.
