I am thinking about installing a Chris King headset on a Trek 5900. The LBS says they can't do it because the headset it came with (Cane Creek) is proprietory and the bottom of the existing heaset it epoxyed to the top of the fork.
Can anyone with specific info on this please reply or post.
Thanks

True.

If you have to have the "King" look, you could always just use the top cup and race.

Hmm.. The crown race is epoxied to the fork? Never heard of that. If it gets damaged you need a new fork? Ask at another shop.

Integrated?

If it's an integrated headset...and it sounds like it might be...you're stuck w/what you've got.

Grumpy had it about right. The lower cup is expoxied in. The shop told him right.
