I have a bike which has a 1 1/8" integrated headset. I wish to install a new fork. The old crown race is firmly attached to the old fork. My bike shop guessed it might be $35 to install the new fork (no cutting required and they would probably be able to reuse the old crown race) First that seems a bit steep=-although I lack the tool to take of the crown race-yes I have read about hammers and punches and screw drivers-not for me. I also wonder about reusing a relatively inexpensve part which would seem to have a good chance of structural change due to removal.
My headset is a FSA and the only other thing it says besides FSA is IS2. I have looked on FSA's site and this headset is not referanced. I have looked at the crown races for sale at FSA and the headset is not referenced. I have e-mailed FSA and they have not replied. I have tried to call-no luck.
So Jensen is selling this crown race. I'm thinking maybe a crown rac is a crown race...
