    Can I use a tapered fork with a Dos Niner straight head tube?

    Is there a bottom bearing headset unit I can use for a Dos Niner that will let me use a tapered steer tube? thanks

    No.

    But there are plenty of straight tube forks still available. Fox still makes suspension forks with 1.125" steerers, for example. Rigids are plentiful.

    I am surprised to read this. I gave up on finding any better than basic forks without tapered steerer.
