Those Talas have a TINY steerer hole. I have 4-5 2001 Enduro fenders here that I wanted to use - SO - I took my trusty belt sander and sanded down the internal screw head and the plastic 'spreader' dome. I then replaced the plastic 'spreaders' with a length of rubber fuel line tubing from the local hardware store that was close to the same diameter as the inside of the steerer. Mounted her up and I think it's more secure than with a star nut!!

So if you have the Talus, try something like that unless you like pressing star nuts up there.
