Well, honestly...I'd like to ride the bike soon and searching for "unbrazing" etc., on the forum didn't yield many results that I felt applied to directly to replacing a steerer tube. In fact, I can't find one article on the net anywhere that specifically addresses the process. I found another frame builder's forum, but its going to take a while to derive specific instructions from that archive of material...its comprehensive to the extreme.
I want to repair the damaged fork. However, I don't feel like I completely understand the process and I'd hate to permanently ruin it..its a beauty.
I know that its not anyone's responsibility to walk me through it, but I'd like to do it right. Even if that means taking it to a frame builder.
