Does anyone know of any products that will convert a tapered headtube in order to use a traditional 1 1/8" headset?

depending on which headset you use you can get a 1.125" id crown race to use with the larger headset bearing.

That would work. I would only need one spacer, for the bottom, asssuming the top fits 1 1/8" headsets.
