Are crown races specific to each headset? or can you use any crown race with any headset?
I have a set of forks with the crown race already fitted and a new frame thats coming with the heaset already fitted, so I'm wondering will I have to remove the crown race off the forks and put on the race that comes with the headset in the frame?
I'm a lazy git, so if I don't have to remove the difficult race I'd be happy if I could use it with the new headset.
I'm a newbie to bike building :oops:
thanks peeps,
