Broken Stem Stuck in Steer Tube
My quill stem on a recently acquired bike was totally seized. I tried bashing, twisting soaking it in solutions. Rather hastily, I decided the easiest and quickest way to get it out was to cut it out, since the stem was destined for the junk bin anyways.
Now, I lopped off the top of the stem to pull the fork out and made vertical cuts into the stem tube, but that piece of stem is still stuck.
To make matters worse, I accidentally broke off the inch and a half of stem that was sticking out the steer tube while trying to bash it out, so it is more or less flush with the top of it now.
The wedge is loose and but trapped by the piece of stem. Any one have ideas?
