    El Mar headset

    Hey folks-
    I bought an El Mar a while ago and it came with a SID fork on it. I acquired an appropriate fork (Salsa? Maybe Fargo or Grande) and I'm wondering the best way to make swapping "easy."

    The El Mar currently has a Cane Creek headset. Would it be possible for a bike shop to just order a new race for the new fork and it's then just as easy as swap back and forth, adjust the preload and go?

    Or is there something I'm missing?

    -J

    Your plan sounds like something to try and is what I would do if I wanted to swap forks back and forth.

    You can order crown races from Cane Creek directly.
