I'd get the tapered steerer with the 15mm TA hands down over one or the other - budget be damned...Ross51 said:Hi All - I'm bargain hunting parts for 29er build.
There are some pretty good sales out there but I can't get a fork with everything on sale.
Do you reckon I'm better off with a tapered steerer or a 15mm thru axle?
Both 2010 Fox F29s.

Better fix: a frame capable of using a tapered steer tube fork.Varaxis said:^ Fixed. That headset was news to me too. A good percentage of 29er frames have it to keep the front end lower.
Not necessarily. The olny test I saw on a Fox for was last year for a 26" version, but the tapered steerer increased the stiffness significantly, the 15mm did not.kitejumping said:Bigger axle is more important than a tapered steerer, but get both if you can.
