    Tapered fork in 1.5 headset

    I have a front with 1.5 straight steerer tube with 1.5 suspension fork (no tapered) and
    I would like to have a possibility to use a rigid fork sometimes. I can't seem to find a rigid fork 1.5, I found only tapered rigid fork, so I wonder whether there is on the market an adapter to install a tapered fork in a 1.5 headset.
    Note, I cannot change the headset since I have to keep using a 1.5 suspension fork and switch to rigid tapered fork when needed

    Thanks

    I have FSA "The Big Fat Pig"

    I just noticed on the FSA site that there is the same model with the reducer called Big-Fat-Pig-15R

    ...maybe I can just use the spacer that comes with the "reducer" model in my 1.5 headset, not sure if it works. Do you guys know ?

    All you need is a reducer on the top. Call FSA, they will confirm you have the right part or will send you out a the correct one.

    I did the same thing with my FSA Gravity headset when I went from a 1 1/8 steerer to a tapered fork. They send me the right part and I had in it in just a few days. Their customer service is pretty good.
