Answer: 
Unfortunately not by the looks of things but for those others out there looking for more options you can get a reducer kit if you are running a 1.5" head tube to increase your choice of forks try this link -> http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/s?q=reducer.

I added a Cannondale oversized 1.5" reducer to my Jekyll recently and it performs really well, the reducer allowed me to chose from a pretty big range of forks.

Answer: 
Hei, you can at least get both Rock Shox Sektor and Revelation with 1 1/8 steerer and 15mm axle. If that is a bit to much travel the Sid also comes in this config, quite possibly Reba/Recon also but that I'm not sure of.

Hello, a Rock Shox Reba or Recon would be a nice replacement/uprade. Make sure you get the right steerer, I guess it is 1 1/8.

Answer: 
They would fit but, in my experience, with tapered forks you would need a headset reducer to account for the two tube diameters. Apparently, dartmoor make a headset reducer kit known as The Flash and there are defo a few generic headset reducers out there, crane creek seem to cover the most bases with their reducers but I would stick to the dartmoor if you can get hold of one easily ;)

Answer: 
If the original wheel (quick release) is still being used with this new fork; then a around 100mm of travel, a straight 1 1/8" steerer for 26" Wheels and with Quick Release dropouts would be ideal.

Answers

Answer: 
Hiya, there are many conversion kits for this but it's easier to point one out if you include a few more bike details into your question (ie Cannondales have been famous for a gotcha in that the conversion kits are specific to their own oversized head tubes). In general, most modern bikes/shocks would be capable of fitting your own choice of headset conversion kit just make sure you marry up the sizes of top tube and bottom cup correctly when you decide on a kit. the one in the recommendation states that it will convert for both tapered and non-tapered 1 1/8" but I would do a bit of research on the reviews before buying ;)

Answer: 
The bottom end of the taper on the fork is 1.5 inches in diameter so wont fit into the head tube at all. It's a no go I'm afraid.

Answer: 
Hi there, according to the manual it's tapered so it would be 1 1/2" to 1 1/8" (bottom tapering to top dimensions) you would not want to move too far away from the original 100mm set up as the geometry of the frame would be compromised. Hope it all works out well ;)

Answer: 
I'm pretty sure they have a straight 1 1/8 steerer. I would always recommend dropping the forks off though and seeing if the hole at the bottom of the steerer tube is the same as the top. If the one at the bottom is larger then it's a tapered steerer.

Hi.

I need a new set of forks for my GT Aggressor XC2. I see you have a good range of forks but I am struggling to find the right size and need some advice.
The old forks are 120mm travel and are rather long, replacing with anything shorter may affect the steerer angle and make it too steep, you have a great range of Rockshox at the price range i'm looking for but most are 100mm travel and I'm not sure what the crown to axle length is. I don't mind losing travel but need to maintain approx the right length which is I think axle to crown 510mm. Can any of your tech experts give me some advice? If you can tell me of a suitable pair at the right price I will buy straight away.....cheers guys.

SS length needs to be 210 mm or longer and SS width is 1 1/8 "
