End on, I cannot tell if its an integrated headset or external,
if external bang out the whole thing,
with the "Rocket" shop tool tool.
replace the whole thing, they are sold that way..
integrated they are set into the frame directly.
then you are pushing it out by the inner race,
the bearing comes out as a whole..
Welded, Nah, frame is painted first.. loc tite .. interference fit, perhaps.
if the new replacement bearing is not a reasonably tight press in ,
ie some resistance,
then you need Loc Tite too. there is a particular one for fitting
cartridge bearings, not same as threadlock product.
[though the cane creek integrated headset in my Koga Miyata
is a loose stack of parts, 'slip fit'.. falls out with the fork let loose]
