Doesn't the new circus have a 15mm?

There's also some 15mm Circus Comp and Experts floating around from Specialized OEM spec. Those are also all tapered though I believe.

Yeah that’s what I’ve been seeing. It honestly may be easier to just replace his front wheel with a 15mm and get a circus rather than to try and make something that will fit from other forks.

My roomate has an old (2014) GT ruckus dirt jumper, the stock fork is a super soft rockshox recon, and I’ve been trying to find a new fork that’ll hopefully be stiffer but I literally cannot find anything anywhere. It needs to be 100mm, straight steerer and have a 15mm axle. Air would be preferable. Anyone know what I should look for?

Pretty sure the 2014 GT Ruckus has a tapered headtube, but has an internal lower cup installed that downsizes it to straight 1&1/8.

If you swap to an external lower headset cup, you can run a tapered fork.

That very well may be the case. GT lists the bike as having a tapered headtube but I took the fork off to do a service and didn’t notice any sort of cup in there, but I’ll check again as that’d make finding a fork much easier. Thanks!

ah I see, might be worth trying to find just the lowers of a different 26 fork, and throwing your stanchions in. and just reducing the travel if need be

Yeah I can’t find a circus in 15mm axle and non tapered... that’s the issue, any fork that’s has a 15mm axle is tapered.
The easiest solution would be to just switch to a 20mm front hub.

Would love to, but I want the crown to be white, and I need a complete extra fork. I appreciate the advice though man! I just need a whole new fork for my new Slope bike, so I can use my current fork on my current slope bike.

ah i see, i didn't even think of the crown lol.. that would look super weird

Why is it so important that it is OEM?

They were only ever produced as OEM.

Yes definitely, however this bike was 100% free for my buddy and he’s trying to keep on a real tight budget.
