Removal of mid BB
How do you do it? I just got my chase hawk and I put it in ok, I think. But i have no clue how to get it out if I need to. And are integrated headsets supposed to have to be hammered in or do they just go in becasue my top one just goes right in.

I was actually thinking of that frame until I heard everyone breaking it. I need a beefier frame, but I hope it works out well for you. I don't know how to get it out either, but I'm guessing it may be a similar process to how you got it in.

Just take a ratchet extension or something, push the spacer over and tap it with a hammer. Alternate sides you hit so it works the bearing out. Don't hit it too hard, just tap it firmly.

it's pretty normal for a headset to drop in on an integrated headset.

Even chase snapped his frame. Intergrated headset goes in easily, slots in

Well, I'm really easy on the frames I've had so far so I dont think it will be a problem, plus I got it for a hundred dollars.I got the BB in by whacking it with a hammer and a socket extention. I'l put pictures in the bike check tonight.
