    OK, I threw caution to the winds and did as described above; and sure enough it opened up--Thanks!

    How can I tell?

    Edit: old fork has label on it that says XDS carbon-tech. There is a clearly defined seam between the crown race and the fork, so it's probably removable.

    OK, the smart thing would be to take it to a Pro--but I have this thing about doing it all myself--I've built 3 bikes from the frame up and haven't had to ask for outside help so far - - -

    Edit: PROBLEM SOLVED--THANKS TO ALL!

    Some more thoughts.

    If you can bring yourself to do it, it would be very helpful for you to go back to the shop-owner you just quit and humbly seek feedback as to why you were not offered a...

    It's really a tough call. I would think the average shop owner who's struggling (aren't they all?) would read your resume and immediately conclude that you are out of his price range...

    Please elaborate on "deeper from the inside out"....

    I was going to say "Don't quit your day job", but . . .
