Not sure if this is the proper forum, so here goes.

I have a Titus El Guapo with a 1.5 head tube. I was running a Fox 36 with 1.125 steerer, so I used a Cane Creek XXii reducer (1.5 to 1.125) headset.

I sold the Fox and am replacing with a Lyric that has a tapered steerer. I left the old crown race on the Fox as I didn't feel like removing it. On a lark, I installed the Lyric today (without a crown race) and, surprise, it slid right in. Is it possible that all I need is a 1.5 crown race to make this setup work?

I thought I needed a lower 1.5 cup. Is the stock crown race what makes the XXii a "reducer"? Thanks.

Assuming your lower headset cup isn't a flush one, you can just get the 1.5" crown race from Cane Creek or elsewhere.
