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.

There's sometimes a buggy.
How many drivers does a buggy have?

One.

So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

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