    Pressed-in and can easiley be removed BUT DO NOT USE A CONVENTIONAL CUP REMOVER. Above both cups there is a carbon reinforcing ring - if you insert a normal cup remover, you will be smashing against this ring. The rings have 2 slots (180degs opposed) - insert a long flat-head screwdriver and tap the cup out, via the slots.

    thanks.
    works perfect!!!
    now, i have a big problem.
    i slide down the head tube the tapered fork and it does´t fit.
    the internal carbon head tube is too narrow.
    is it possible to cut down the inner base of the lower cup inside the head tube.?
