Rated 4 out of 5 by CycleDoctor The right tool for the job
Does what it should, very light, well made. I tried to use some copper pipe cut with a hacksaw and splayed out, got one cup out then gave up. This works great, I do wish it would work with 1 inch cups though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yoga Good tool, lowest price
You pay half of a price of removers from other brands, but quality is not compromised. Despite it is told, that you can use it for 1 1/8" headsets, it perfectly works for 1.5" ones too, tested that on two bikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent tool, cheaper than others
At first, cup remover itself is very simple, low-tech tool. It's hard to create bad one. This one is cheaper, than some other brands, but works perfectly well. By the way, although it is stated to be 1 1/8 only, I've also removed 1 1/5 (49 mm headtube) cups without any issues and any damage to cups or tube.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous works well. but I dropped mine by accident and one of the prongs bent outwards. bit fragile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Efficace mais cher quand même ...
Voici un outil qui remplit parfaitement son rôle.
On l'insère assez facilement et en quelques secondes on retire la cuvette du vélo en quelques coups de marteau.
Par contre,niveau prix, c'est quand même exagéré pour un simple tube d'acier.
Dommage car c'est réellement pratique à l'utilisation.

Like the X-Tools range. They're great value and do the job well. No exception here. Much better using this than a screwdriver!

Simple is best. Does the job in seconds. Could be cheaper hence 4 stars.
Nb Solidly support, secure and cushion your bike frame before you start bashing on this tool. A few short sharp taps, maybe even just one, and the cups slip out of the head tube. Use a block of wood and hammer to knock the new cups in. Happy days.
