Hello from Indy

Hey All,
I'm new here but have been mountain biking for 20 years this year!

Anyhow, I'm here primarily to help update my technical knowledge of bikes.

I built my last pair of bikes ten years ago.
One sweet Kestrel road frame (bright yellow)
One super sweet Ellsworth Truth mtn bike.

Time has come to update those fellows as follows:

- 2012 Kestrel Airfoil Pro SL / Ultegra / Rolf Vigor wheels
- GT Zaskar Expert 100 29er Carbon 2012

Problem is, my technical bike knowledge is also ten years old so I'll have some technical questions to answer.

Notably how the GT has a tapered headset that's 1 1/8 - 1 1/2 Tapered. How the heck do I match some forks to that?

See you on the forums!

Greg in Indy
