    Nope. That's for a straight 1.5 head tube, not 1-1/8 like the SL.

    looks like definitely just 1.5" or tapered to 1.5" head tubes.

    A way to get a similar affect would be to put a fork on the SL that has a great A2C like a Fox Float 36. That would get you pretty close to 68 degree HA

    Yep, if future moj models have tapered head tubes. But remember only 1&1/8 steer tubes cause you gotta have room in there to do the angle, so you sacrifice the tapered steer stiffness option for the ability to change headset angle.
    (worth it to me on certain bikes.) Hopefully we will someday have the same model forks with more offset options with different axles to crown heights for different size bikes. IE size large or medium Talas etc. Along with angle headangle seatangle options thru different size frames.
    yea right !
    Actually, I would love to try a steeper head angle on my 650b moj.

    I see CC started making a XX 44 headset that's intended to enable the use of a tapered steerer on a 1-1/8 bike. Although this would not enable the use of a angleset, WOULD it enable an SL to take a tapered fork?

    why make it so complicated?

    2.2 rear tire, 2.4 front, 30% shock sag. Hey, presto: 68 degrees!

    Even less complicated - bend the forks at the steerer and get that genuine Mojo chopper look.
