Well I want to strip my old bmx, paint the forks and put in some 3 piece cranks. Okay 1 piece cranks were easy to come out. Took the stem off the forks, and they are threaded, but how can I get the forks off the bike? When just turning the steerer, looks like a bit of the headset is attatched to the forks preventing them from 'dropping' out.

Pllease help me, I am stuck and its raining soon! Cheers Joe

there should be a big nut on top of the headset or just a piece that screws onto the forks, adjustable wrench should get it off, depending on how old and knackered the bike is it might need a bit of force, after things have been unscrewed they should just drop out

I just got it, hit a punch lightly to a ring, and hey presto!
