Looking for confirmation whether the crown race is needed or not for headset installation.
The headset is a Ritchey WCS Carbon Drop In Integrated Headset.

The bearing seems to fit quite well without one, but I am not sure if it is meant to be installed without a crown race.

Does the race fit properly in the head tube?

Yes, all the way down to the last ~.5" where the tube start to flare. This bit just seems too tight to force.

I think your best bet will be to contact Willier directly on this one, unless someone here happens to have gone through the same thing.

...and for anyone that was wondering, all solved by my LBS. Even made a nice dent in the workshop floor.
