    Is it possible to upgrade/convert the 'cup and ball bearing' headrace for taper bearings with a spacer similar to what you are able to do to featherbed framed bikes. If so where can you get them?
    Thank you
    Giles

    I haven't done this myeself (yet), however all bearing parts and the crown/stem are identical, thus it should work. Bearings are available from numerous sources, e.g.
