More compression damping means more hydraulic resistance, so the shock or fork will feel firmer. Crown: The brace that holds a fork’s stanchions in place. Single crown forks are found on most mountain bikes. Dual-crown forks, which are stiffer and more suited to longer-travel bikes, are mostly found on downhill bikes.

no. you can usually get a crown race off by using a flat flat flat head screwdriver and slowly prying each side up. you do need to use alot of force to put it on a new fork though, usually shops have a special kind of tube that fits over the steerer tube and allows them to punch it down hard.
