Any of you you folks know the easiest way to replace the fork/stem combo on an integrated headset Giant OCR? Am I limited to using another fork with a threaded steerer tube? Or, can I replace the headset with an Ahead type and use a threadless setup? This integrated headset seems to limit my options but I wanted to check with those are familiar with this setup.

Respectfully submitted-

Giants have what would more accurately be called a "hidden headset." It's just an ordinary headset that fits inside a bigger diameter head tube. Threadless replacements are easily available.
