I have purchased a used Salsa Ala Carte with World Cup suspension forks and the original fixed forks. I would like to use the fixed forks on my next touring trip in September and am having a hard time finding a second race to put on the fixed forks.
I would rather keep each set of forks with their own race, is this a fairly normal things to do? Some bike shop staff have commented on the unlikely-hood of finding a matching spare race.
Taking away the forks at the base of the Syncros headset reveals the bearings are 6806-2RS OSID ENDURO. I have been told that the angle of the race matches the angle of the bearing.
I was wondering if it is out of the ordinary to buy multiple races for a single headset. If so, then purchasing a bearing / matching race this fits the space might be an alternative.
I have emailed Syncros but though I would see how other riders have approached this conundrum.
