    Is the Fox 36 available in the 1.5 lower to 1.125" upper steerer tube design like the Trek Remedies with the E2 head tube setup?

    Not sure on the availability, but I like the idea. I think I also saw a pic of a Totem from the Taiwan show with the same type of steerer tube.

    Yea it seems like it will be just as tough as the 1.5" steerer tube and best of all, it will allow me to have a use for my existing 1.125" stem and headset on a different frame when I change to an integrated headset and integrated stem.

    no you cannot buy this fork - unless you buy it along with a complete trek remedy bike

    Even if you could buy this fork, what frame would you put it on?
    I guess you could get creative and frankenstein a headset, but then you'd be better off just buying a 1.5 stem.

    Yeti Seven is going with the taper set-up.

    I wonder if it will be available before a fork?

    What is the advantage over a 1.5" steer tube?

    Insignificant weight reduction in stem/steerer with minimum strength difference and the ability to run 1.125" stems if you are talking about running it in 1.5" HT.

    Exactly none. Just like the new 14mm hub standard.

    There are a few advantages for me if I were to buy a 6.6 Slopestyle.

    I have a Socom w/ a Fox 40, FSA Orbit Xtreme Pro 1.5r headset and Easton Havoc 1.125" stem. I want to lower the bars on my Socom a bit and I can do so by getting an FSA Orbit Z 1.5r headset and I want to get an integrated stem/upper crown setup. Once doing that I will have a barely used $100 headset and $80 stem that I won't have a use for.

    Then I'll be able to use the FSA Orbit Z 1.5r headset and integrated stem/crown on my socom and use the Easton Havoc stem and FSA Orbit Xtreme Pro 1.5r headset on the Slopestyle by only having to remove a spacer on the lower headset cup.

    So the main thing is to save $180 because I might be able to buy a Slopestyle this summer, but it's a stretch. The other is that I like the Easton stem but it isn't available in a 1.5".

    Either way I am not that interested.
