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.
