The fork has a 235mm steerer (8 INCHES bro?...we are in Canada) with 25mm of thread....I actually ran it threadless on my last bike. I think a crisp $20 bill would suffice.

That house CAN'T be real, it looks like every bike stolen in the east end is there!!!! Look at the fence caving on the right.
There's a second pool in the yard as well!

Good bit will usually do the job. For particularly nasty ones I pull out the carbide dremel bits...these will cut thru ANYTHING!...I have removed stripped Campy track lockrings with these.

Just buy one that is slightly smaller than the head of the bolt. $2 bit=no good. $8 bit=easy.

BTW, anyone know what is up with Igor, the prince of theives these days? I've been by twice in the last couple of days, and the place looks more derelict than usual. Didn't smell any rotting flesh though.
