i just bought this bike and the fork is not tapered, if i were to upgrade eventually and wanted to put in a tapered fork would i be able to do that by just changing out the bearings?

Yes. The EX7 has the same exact frame as the EX8 or EX9. Your frame is ready for the upgrade.

You won't even need to change bearings, just get the appropriate base plate for the fork. If/when you go tapered, absolutely go thru-axle as well (even if you need a new front wheel to do it). Makes a bigger difference than steerer tube IMO.
