Hi guys, I've found a really good deal on some 100m fox float forks for a new DJ build, The only problem is they're tapered.
Could i use a converter (such as https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/cane-creek-40-series-ec44-40-bottom-assembly/rp-prod115641?gs=1&sku=sku416096&pgrid=60711843258&ptaid=pla-425303602226&utm_source=google&utm_term=&utm_campaign=PLA+All+Products&utm_medium=base&utm_content=mkwid|s3YsAh9Gm_dc|pcrid|309840119912|pkw||pmt||prd|416096UK&gclid=CjwKCAjw5dnmBRACEiwAmMYGOdCIyGwxVieDbHJIiYEfFyuGQE_CKg6gJjVEnqVkeOtjMLM7qtbYFxoCZsoQAvD_BwE) on this frame https://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/2542945/
Thanks guys Smile

It's all dependant on your headtube mate. If your headtube is a standard ID campy spec, they wont fit no matter what converter you use...tapered steerers wont fit a standard headtube.

if the frame uses campy then you are out of luck, but if it has a 44mm lower headtube then yes you can use that external lower cup to allow fitment of a tapered fork, it will raise the front end a little bit which slacks out the ha a half a degree and raises the bb a hair, i did this on a steel dj frame after blowing up a straight steerer fork and swapped to tapered and it works great
