Hey,

Say you had a frame with a tapered integrated headset and you wanted to use a straight 1 1/8 fork on it but the fork has an integrated crown race (can not use a press on crown) what headset would work?

trials bike problems..

so would that be a race that sits between the bearing and the regular crown race? (in this case the one built on the fork) If so that would do the job and should be easy to find.

The lower bearing's inner race is flanged to accommodate the 1⅛ crown race. I'm not at home right now, will try to find a picture when back at home.

EDIT: I can't find the right headset, but according to this thread:

You could use an adapter to sit the 1⅛ bearing in the fork.

Adapter part number #2009-9060.

using a thread already at top -
what kind of a headset I need to find to fit tapered fork to Scott Gambler '16 ? For now I have 1 1/8 steerer fork.
Any tapered zero stack will do the job?
Haven't bought a headset for a long time, now can't catch up with standarts.
