Noticed on the enduros this year somewhere there's mention of a 8mm crown race type thing (used instead of the crown race I'm assuming) thats being used to get the 150mm fox 32 fork to effectively provide an increased axle to crown height. Is this true? ...and if so does anyone make anything like this to try using, anyone heard of anything like that? Just interested.

    there are a few companies that do something similar. Cran ceek do a headset that is 5mm taller. Hope do a raised crown race....

    Cane Creek one won't be possible for me as I'm running Hope Semi-Integrated, I had a quick look on hopes website for a raised crown race but couldn't find anything?

    An aftermarket
    crown race is also available which has 3mm of extra height
    built into it, which again can be used to help with clearance
    issues. Call the sales team for more information.
