    sounds like it comes in bundles too...that'll be a fine addition to the rolling chassis setup...

    On-One will sell heaps of these. They will fit all frames designed for a 470mm fork, and with the 55mm offset, reduces trail to improve handling. Hell, I might even get one for my Specialized Carve Pro and run fat front for a while.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    I'll probably have one of these as well. Assuming it's full carbon (not AL steer tube) for that weight......

    Not sure how you guys aren't able to click the link.

    I'm guessing based off the on-one fatty it will only be available tapered, so no-go on the bikes direct fats. Maybe they will make a straight version in addition to the tapered which would be cool.

    Nope, it's straight 1 1/8" steer tube. It will fit everything.

    Just going by their website. For headset it says "Tapered Headset 1 1/8 inch - 1.5 inch". Might as well fit a tapered fork and design one if you have it available to you. Like I said, would be cool if they make it in both.

    But if they did that, the price would increase.

    Yeah. I'm really hoping the price will be lower than the Carver but with the same quality as that fork. I would like to lighten my moonlander up a little, but not that concerned about it to spend $300.

    If you mean the Motobecanes from Bikes direct, mine looked like 1-1/8" straight when I had it out to grease the headset.

    Interesting. I have to look again. Wasn't thinking about it at the time, so I may have missed it.

    Photo's? From the specs on their page and all the photos... I don't see a tapered head tube. But it could be the computer playing tricks on me... you have the actual bike.

    Right, unless there are photo angle or switcheroo tricks going on, that's not a tapered headset tube.

    Maybe I had too many beers? I don't have time to pull the headset apart right now, but maybe somebody else does. The pictures on the Moto/BD page of the fork are mine; I only took a shot of the crown/race. FWIW, the BD specs are as follows: 26" RIGID FORK, ALLOY STEM, 1-1/8" THREADLESS, ALLOY BLADE ?34.9mmx2.0 T TAPER ?28mmx200L, W/O PIVOT, W/DISC MOUNT ONLY.

    I don't feel like dropping the fork. But, I did measure the top AND bottom of the head tube at the very end where the headset starts.

    It is 50mm at both locations. I find it highly unlikely that the steer tube is tapered since both ends of the tube match.

    A straight 44mm ID head tube can use a tapered fork with the proper headset. Fairly common with steel and ti frames as it is cheaper/easier than making an actually tapered head tube.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
