    2008 Nomad 1.5 head Not compatible with newer Fox Forks

    Just installed a 2012 Fox 36 TALAS 160 RLC Tapered on my 2008 SC Nomad, first gen with 1.5 head tube, used Cane Creek high stack headset on the bottom of head!
    Unfortunately, when wheel turns all the way on the right side, the adjusting knobs of fork don't clear bottom tube of frame!

    Seems that a higher stack needed, however, the one I am using is 12mm! are there any head sets with higher stack???

    Chris King have a +5mm crown race. I needed one for a similar situation as yours on my XC bike. Mine is a 1 1/8 so I'm unsure if they do a 1 1/2 version.
    Check out my SportTracks plugins for some training aid software.

    If they do have one, will it work with my Cane Creek Head Set?

    Yes, it should work. i use CK and Cane Creek crown races interchangeably, since they both have a 45 degree angle.
