On Valentine's day, I dragged Meg out to the Quadbikes, which is some sort of a Harvard run bike shop/tool workshop. You can rent space there for $10 an hour, and they have almost every tool you could ever need.
The work area is really large, and although it was a bit messy, you had full freedom to work at your own pace and get things done right.
I installed the King brown Sotto Voce headset, installed the crown race, cut the steerer, and installed the star nut.
It all came out surprisingly well.
