What Cane Creek adapter(s) are needed to run a 1 1/8" Marzocchi 888 on the Session 88's tapered headtube? Part #s or pics will help too. Thanks.

Note: My bike is a Session 88 FR that came stock with a Totem with the tapered steerer tube.

Those standard style headsets replace the stock internal headset? I'm new to the tapered internal headset and never had one apart. I guess I should just drop the fork and take a look.

I edited my first post to clarify. My bike is a Session 88 FR that came with a single crown Totem with the tapered steerer tube. I've ran standard style reducer headsets before but am unfamiliar with the new E2 internal tapered design.
Mine just came with a simple adaptor. the headset was built for the tapered style yet had an adaptor

theres an exploded view with the adaptor.

I'm running 88rc3's on my session absolutely awesome you'll love it!
Does this frame use a standard, press in headset or something unique? I mean besides the tapered 1 1/8 & 1.5 size.
So I stopped being lazy and pulled the fork off to see what was in there.



The E2 internal tapered headtube.



It uses the standard 1.5 headset bearing.



Tapered steerer tube.

I called Cane Creek and this is the lower crown race that is needed: https://store.canecreek.com/product...er=.HD1406/1739.0.1.1.18069.496.56211.56280.0



The ride. A 888 RC3 EVO is in its future.
