I have tried removing the clamping bolts and prying it apart with screwdrivers... no luck. For whatever reason it simply will not fit down over fork - even with some whacks from a rubber mallet.

It is a wicked rare Brooklyn Machine Works stem going on a set of threadless landing gears... so I reluctant to bring out the file/dremel

Any other ideas folks?
