How to cut a bike fork and install a crown race? Watch and learn!

I got a new bicycle fork, so I need to cut it down to my size, and install a headset crown race.

Parts List…

Fork: Carbon fiber fork with tapered steerer tube (1-1/8” upper and 1-1/2” lower)

Crown Race: Headset manufacturer’s item (IS52/40 for my lower headset bearing)

Tools Required…

  1. Bench vide
  2. Park Tool cutting guide
  3. Hacksaw
  4. File
  5. PVC pipe (1-1/2” for 1-1/2” headset lower bearing)
  6. Rubber mallet

Optional: Paint cans LOL (be careful)

Tip: My crown race has a 40mm inner diameter. The PVC Schedule 40 pipe has a 1.59” inner diameter (40.4mm), so it just fits over the crown race.
