I believe they are pressed in...I had to press mine out. Thing to know is that there is a lip on the inside of the hub and the bearings have to be pressed out from the opposite side.

Steering stem? you'll need a bolt with a 1 3/16" or 30mm hex to unscrew the "nut" that holds the bearing in. The nut is insideout, threads on the outside and hex on the inside and comes out the top.

The easy way to press them in is to use a socket that fits on the outer metal ring on the bearing and hit it lightly and evenly untill it is all the way in. Screw drives can damage them, it is too much pressure in one spot. When you even the pressure all the way around the bearing it is less likely you will damage the bearing!
