    Fork change

    I have 2 bikes with suspension forks different headsets though (both ahead 1 1/8). I want to change the fork from one frame to the other. Do I still remove the crown race from each fork? Or they are all the same and I don't need to? Do I need any special tools to remove if needed? Thanks.

    You can tap it out with a flathead screwdriver, work slowly and be sure to seat it correctly (flush) on the new fork.
    The wheel is a extension of the foot

    yeap.. follow Mr.Doom's advice.... on some brands different models use the same race (like cane creek) but this is not usually the case, so swapping them is a safer bet.

    How do you seat it correctly? With the same method? Screwdriver, or it sits without pressing it too hard?
