Or a screw extractor kit would work well too.

iirc 8,9,10 all use the same HG Driver.

Okay just making sure it doesn't look like there's room for another cog

the spacers between the cassette get thinner, chain gets thinner, enough to fit more cogs. He could probably even fit NX Eagle cassette on there if he wanted

. Zee is 10 speed, there is a hack to use a 9speed SRAM shifter with a 10 speed Shimano derailleur that works ok

Any ideas on how to remove an expander from a carbon steerer? There is no receiver for an Allen key above or below the threads for the topcap bolt. I marked the two metal faces with a sharpie and tried tapping the bolt with a mallet but the whole expander moved down the inside of the steerer tube. What should I do?
Do you have a picture of the unit?
Better late than never Blank Stare


Thanks

Tap it out

Going two taps around so it evenly removes itself then pops out bottom of crown

There is no opening at the bottom of the steerer.
Thanks though

Looks like a compression plug. Rethread the bolt in a bit with the top cap to hold the position and tap it with a rubber/dead blow/ synthetic mallet. This should cause the expanders to go back to the installation position.

Thats what I did but the result was that the sleeve was sliding further into the steerer tube with the wedge.
Thanks

Hmmm what fork is it?

Tap another carbon steerer bung plug in on top of the lowered one that looks like your only option tbh
