I went to put a different handlebar mount on my bianchi snark. Both the pipes were supposedly 7/8" diameter. The new mount I was trying to cram into the neck of my forks was going in hard after the first 1/2 inch or so. It was 95 degrees out, and I had sweated out all my patience so I busted out the hammer and got it to go down into the hole. But I must have strethed the threads because the 1" nut now will not go back on. My question is can I somehow replace this third tube on my forks, or is it impossible to get these bearings out so I can get this third tube out??? I geuss I can just weld it, but I would rather not do this.Any help would be appreciated.
