For those of us...

who think that building the bike is half of cycling, you can make a slide hammer. Take your fork and race to the hardware and find a pipe fitting that’s the right size and attach a nice heavy piece of 12” pipe and you have a slide hammer. Your fitting should hit the race out where the bearings will be. I’ve only done 1”, so I can’t tell you what fitting will work. I used to just use a piece of hardwood and a hammer, but it’s hard to get a real stubborn one started. If you have a carbon steerer tube, I would be much more afraid of any home solution.
