    Do I need the $100 Park tool to do that, or can I just use two washers and a threaded bolt?
    Weather today: Hot. Humid. Potholes.

    That's for pressing in the headset. To do what he did, no you don't need Park's headset facer (like $300), you just need a chisel and a hammer!

    Do I need a block of wood and hammer for that?

    The name you're looking for is Bikelangelo. And yes, I'm still around!
    And I do happen to have a Lizard handy.
