    Hi folks. I have a 2009 TransAm with a straight steerer and I want to use tapered Fox 32 on it. Does such an adapter exist to make this work? If so, is the control/stability compromised -- ie, worth it or should I just get a newer TransAm with a tapered headtube? Thanks!

    They only way you can use a tapered fork on a straight head tube is if it is a 1.5 size head tube.
