    I think 44IETS is 44mm headtube, internal top cup, external bottom cup, tapered steerer and I want to know if it’ll take a 2011 fox 36 van rc 2

    The answer to your question is yes, BUT don’t buy a NP headset, they are 5H1te. Crap bearings and crappier seals. For not a lot more, Hope do exactly what you want. I have had both 😉

    Don’t worry – it will be Hope 🙂

    Just checking – saw this and needed to be reassured by Internet experts!

    Recommended Fork length – 160-180mm travel with Internal bottom cup 44IISS, 150-170mm with External bottom cup 44IETS, 44IESS or 44EE0S

    Rides fine with talas 180 forks, keep meaning to get a slightly longer stem tho as the 50 is a tad short, n what everyone else is saying the nukeproof bearings are made of cheese, mine are rough.

    I’ve got a Mega with 1 1/8th forks. Which Hope headset do I need please?

    tmb467 – and to answer your question, I’ve no desire to change it unless I come into some money. It’s tough enough & light enough for the money. Only thing I’ve changed is paying Loco to tune the Monarch a little to stop it blowing through the travel.

    Unfortunately lad had already sold it when id messaged. Either that or he didn’t want to sell it to me cos I was asking for receipts

    In Luton btw – was being sold on pinkbike if anyone is missing one?

    There’s a red Intense being sold on the forum here that I’m interested in now

    One or two Mega’s coming up for sale these days. Tough frames, haven’t read about any problems & notice a lot of the Lakes boys like em.
    And Blower off of the Sweary Northerners didn’t break his.
