Frames with 1.5 inch headtubes – whats out there
Propet SL – 120mm fork & rear travel (190×45 shock)
STD Prophet – 140mm fork & rear travel (200x50mm shock)
Prophet X – 160mm fork travel & 140mm rear travel & QR axle (200x50mm shock)
Prophet MX – 160mm fork travel & 140mm rear travel & 12mm axle(200x50mm shock)
All are based on the same frame, the MX (also available as a 4x) got the 12mm rear axle and extra gusseting around the headtube to take the 160mm forks (X is the same but no 12mm axle).
Oh and Prophet MX/4x had the ISCG chainguide mounts maybe the the X’s too, but not surePosted 6 years ago
dlr – thanks but needs to be a 16/small.
Mega does fit the bill. might wait though for a few more to hit the ground and be ridden…
having the air and a coil for big mountain duties is my plan
don’t really have a problem with the steep seat tube. on a 15.5 it would be well out the way for descending anyway and should make it climb well..Posted 6 years agoDeveron53Member
I have a Mega with 1.5 forks. Measure across the inside of the head tube, if it’s 44mm top and bottom, you will get a 1.5 steerer through but you’ll need to use external cups. Nukeproof make shallow and deep flange cup headsets, get the shallow flange ones for 44mm tapered-compatible head tubes.Posted 6 years agogreasemonkeyMember
I’ve a Gemini I’m considering selling on as going 29er for a trailable commuter bike, plus my ridings gone very xc lately due to a nasty case of Dupuytrens contracture (hands ****) lots of upgrades, owes me a good fistful over a grand (hate to think really)
Am considering selling her for close to £900 when the time comes (v soon) but joined here this evening n saw this. prob a bit late now?

tracers crack (supposedly – look around on the usual forums…) I was looking around the other week for exactly the same eason – saw some 1.5″ lyriks at 300 new, was thinking tracer as its basically the same as a nomad which I’d love, found the tracer for 900…then remembered they all crack. Put my credit card back in my wallet and stepped away from the computer….Posted 6 years ago
nomads have the large headtube…..but aren’t cheap.
