    Hammering out a Headshok

    I have an older model with the dial lock out. Do I need to remove this first before slamming it with a hammer?

    I hear some water in my headtube (just washed the frameset), and also need to get it rebuilt I believe.

    Cheers.

    Remove the knob and use a soft faced mallet.

    No mallet? 2X4 with a hole drilled to allow the protrusion on top to sit inside.

    Beat it out, but be ready to catch it, it may eject quickly. Your toes (and fork) will thank me

    You didn't power wash it did you? I'd pull the bottom zip tie on the boot and shove a pencil up in to hold it open too, you may have more draining to do than you know......

    Thanks! Removing the knob just consists of loosening that allen at the top?

    I also hear you are the guy to send my shock to for repairs... Is that so?

    And, no, not a power wash... Just a shower head on a stripped frame...
