Looking for tapered (1 1/2-1 1/8) fork

Hey All- Looking to upgrade the terrible Suntour fork (and potentially shock) on my 14 Trace-4, 27.5". It is a tapered steerer, 1 1/2-1 1/8. Looking to see what is out there. Thanks in advance!

Do your self a favour and look for a regular 1.5 to1 1/8th taper and just swap stems and you upper headset bearing. You will have vastly more choices.


Second what @Pepperjester said…

For the 1.25" you have a ZS 44/31.8 top headset cup/bearing… to convert to a 1.125" will need a ZS 44/28.6 top headset cup/bearing. The bottom cup stays the same.

Trying to find dumb Overdrive2 1.25" forks really limits what you can put on.


Agreed. I did the same when I swapped a Pike on my '14 Trance. Way more options for forks

Thanks! Well maybe I should go with the 11/8 then. Seems like there is quite a bit more available.

Yep, good advice here.

One does not simply walk into Mordor…

How much travel are you looking for?
