Hey. I'm trying to replace my bearings in my headset. The damn things were so old and rusty, that they exploded when I tried to hit them out. Leaving the race left in. They were fsa bearings and they're set into E Thirteen reducer cups. Does anyone have any tips for getting them out? The metal seems real hard!!!
Thanks.
Richie.

Im over here now
i had the same problem too with a CC headset in the E13 cups. i had to dremel holes into the cups to get the race out. this is what e13 recommended
i ended up getting a straight reducer headset in the end anyway
