any ideas for removing this? the cup has three notches and i've already tried a spanner wrench with a long *ss pipe for leverage but no such luck. sheldon's vice idea? i'm thinking about that, after applying liquid wrench or similar type oil. or maybe i should just take it in and have the lbs take care of it...

The huge bolt through the cup? We did that on a landfill-salvage fixie conversion and it worked perfectly. We tried a number of bolts - all too thin and weedy - until we tried a big, heavy-ass bolt from a car's towball mounting. That and a couple of big, thick washers mated nicely and with two guys giving it some ugliness (and a metre-long cheater bar), it came away cleanly.
