- 1.5 straight steerer in a tapered headtube….?
Posted 3 years ago
I could go and measure mine bit it’s got a standard 1 1/8th up top
OK – I didn’t realize you can external tapered headtubes. The one I have seen are zero stack tapered headtubes (44mm top).
To be honest I’m pretty sure it will fit but just wanted someone to agree as I haven’t seen it done before- pretty please!!!!!!!!!!!
…and if Nukeproof is the only option?Posted 3 years ago
Look at the Hope link, they spec just about anything.Posted 3 years ago

I have just purchased some cut price fox 36 uppers from Mojo with a 1.5in steerer. I original thought I would be limited to a frame with a 1.5in headtube (intense tracer etc) but would I be right in thinking that I can also fit these in a tapered headtube if I use the top half of this Nukeproof headset….
….and a standard zero stack lower race – significantly widening my choice of frames?
If so is it only Nukeproof that do these headsets?Posted 3 years ago
it’s going to look a bit odd with an inset lower and an external upper…
I think it would look quite nice
Im thinking of maybe a Trek Remedy
The only Issue I can see is the depth – the Nukeproof Top cup has a depth of 14.8mm. Its not clear what the depth of the bore is on these zero stack frames – but the Integrated 44mm hope headset is only 10mm in depth.Posted 3 years ago
