    Reba Brain/Niner Tapered Compatibility

    I currently ride a '11 S-Works Stumpjumper 29er with the Reba brain fork. I recently purchased a Niner One9 frameset with the tapered headtube and the Niner carbon tapered fork. Both framesets utilize the FSA Campy style headset. My question is, will these two forks be interchangeable or will I need a specific crown race for me to be able to swap them back and forth? Any information on this topic is greatly appreciated.

    I can defo confirm for the 2010 Sworks you would need to put in an adapter to make the niner fork work and the 2010 sworks reba would probably not work on your Niner.

    however I'm pretty sure that with the 2011 you would not face any issues.

    With the 2011 and on, you will be fine to switch them around.

    For completeness Briscoelab and myself were referring to the taper only.( at least i did) You still need to check if both your crown races are identical.

    Yep! You might have to switch crown races... but the forks themselves will switch back and forth.

    Understood. I'm assuming theyre the same races since they both use the FSA headset, but, you know what happens when you assume. I'll figure it out this winter on a snowy day. Thanks for the help!
