So I bought this 2010 Fox Talas 36 w/ a tapered steer tube from 1 1/2" down to 1 1/8".
My question is will this work on my 2005 Kona Dawg Dee-lux?
Here is the info I have. I am not a very techy, and am conflicted on what to do.
I have the L or 18" bike
- 2005 Dawg Deelux
This is the fork I bought:

What led me to call cane creek
I really donít want to spend $225 for a whole new crown and steer tube assembly from Fox, not to mention the labor cost to have it put on and re-built. The whole point in buying the used Fork was to save me on costs, now with it looking like it wonít fit, I may be only 200 bucks short of how much a brand new fork would cost, because of costs in having to swap out crown and steer tube assemblies.
I hear that there are ways around this, via head set assembly adaptor kits, etcetera. I called crown creek (CSR's have been wrong before) but the dude I talked to seemed to know what he was talking about, and said no, that I need a straight 1 1/8" steer tube to work with my Mt. Bike, and that there is nothing I can do but swap out steer tube assemblies.
Any input or help is greatly appreciated. It seems like technology is moving so fast I canít ever keep up! Such a newb....
Mahalo for your help
