Tapered steerer suspension forks… coming soon. Take the survey!

I know a few of my builder friends read this (and even if you’re not a framebuilder, you can chime in if you’d like). Please take my short survey (or just read the accompanying links, which should be pretty exciting to big/aggro riders who like custom steel bikes):

Click here to take the survey.

For those who are unfamiliar, this is a new headset standard being built by Cane Creek that utilizes the existing Inset (44mm) cup size to allow 1 1/8″ top and 1 1/2″ lower bearings for tapered steerer tube forks (this is primarily going to be of interest to mountain bike folks).

We are in the process of having steel head tube stock made for this project, and would like to know what (of several) type of head tube potential users would prefer. If you are interested in this, please take the survey (there is plenty of background material linked to it if you want to read further).

Thanks!
