    Crown Race on R3 Forks

    Hi all, I had a 2016 R3 which was replaced for a 2019 R3 through warranty. The new bike was built with parts from the old, but the headset is a different size (lower bearing changes from 1 3/8 to 1 1/2). This meant I had to purchase a new headset, but when installing I noticed there is no crown race. Do these forks use a crown race or do they sit directly on the lower bearing? I am particularly interested in the 2019 but assume its the same for the 2016, because I don't see a crown race in any case. The doubt arises because the Cervelo fork owner manual does mention a crown race and crown race installation tool being needed. Just note, the local bike shop built the new bike, but the fork was loose, so I checked and noticed the headset was a different standard, so changing it myself now. Thanks for any help and guidance!

    .. do you have one of these manuals .. ..

    .. the R3 2019 headsets are FSA IS2 1-1/8 x 1-1/2 drop in bearings for taperd forks .. just ad some white lightning crystal grease [not carbon paste with sand ore grease for bearings] at their seat ..
