If you are talking about that steel U cannel ring I always just pulled them out if I needed to but unless you mess it up you almost never need to replace that part. Just replace the balls and grease it back up. Steven Willis The Bike Stand 1778 East Second Street Scotch Plains NJ 07076 908-322-3330 http://www.thebikestand.com
