Front end: bearings and races removing

Steereng stem lower bearing is hard to remove.
I smashed old lower bearing with screwdriver. Then I cut the race in two places with Dremel tool. You have to be careful - stem should be untouched!

Then using the hammer and drift punch I carefuly removed the race.

I removed bearing races with hammer and long drift punch.
Race wear is easy noticeable.


  1. The look of that bearing is really cool. Seems really sturdy to me. white metal bearings
