    Non-tapered Niner carbon fork on tapered RDO frame.

    I am having a situation where my new Air 9 RDO build may be delayed since my warranty fork from Fox probably won't make it back to me in time to race the bike over Labor day.

    I do have an older, 1 1/8th" non-tapered carbon Niner fork that I could use on the RDO to get me by.

    Has anyone done this? (with the reducing base plate obviously) Do the lines of the frame/fork match up or is the tapered rigid fork bigger around the top?

    I did.

    I did it for a bit with the regular niner carbon frame, there is a slight mesh-up difference but no biggie! BTW, I have one of the extra base plates I got directly from niner I will sell you on the cheap. like $10.00 shipped? it is new, un-installed. contact me if you need one. cheers, T.W.
