    frame for tapered fork (Rock Shock, Fox)

    I have a bunch of tapered forks (Fox, Rock Shock Reba SL, etc). I'm looking for a frame (which has tapered head)..any suggestions?

    Or, can I use certain frame (with non-tapered head tube)?

    Niner frames use tapered forks. I think most other modern high end frames do as well. Tapered forks can only be used in frames that are meant for tapered frames.

    virtually every quality bike uses a head tube that will work with a tapered fork other than a few hardtails. 1.5, tapered, and 44mm head tubes will all accomadate a tapered steerer.
