    Zeppelin Elite - Is it possible to use a adapter to use tapered headset/fork?

    I am thinking I'm wrong here and am willing to look foolish, but in looking at my bike it seems that I might be able to use a tapered fork with a new headset. Thought I read somewhere that Cane Creek might have one that works.

    It should work. I would suggest giving Airborne a call to see if there is more info on it. Until then, there is a video on installing the bearings on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91ps1jxFMjY

    Keep in mind that the bottom bearing sits something like .5" lower so the front of the bike will sit that much higher.
