Don't know if this was mentioned, but Atomic Cycle in LA has a headset that supposedly (only read about it) allows the larger fork to be used with the smaller head tube. Call them.

cat has an excellent point. Keep your shoulders square and you'll have more lung capacity so breathing will be more efficient. "Cruiser" style is excellent for this aspect.
