Is 12 mm depth smaller than nukeproof

no idea you have the frame measure the insert depth. but again I dont think the steerer will pass though.

same frame and tapered steer as well and thank that was very helpful.



No, as the wise old men above have said. :D

It's a is straight steerer but 120mm rather than the 100mm you are looking at. Just an option if you would like a bit more travel.

One thing to remember if buying second hand is that the yukon frame needs quite a long steerer length, measure yours when removing it.


Currently running 205mm long steer length would a 220+mm steer lenght do the trick or a bit more.

Worry first if it will actually go IN your frame......

But yes it would.

Checked my mates, it is indeed waisted. I don't think it is possible to fit a tapered steered, at all.

Has the OP already made his purchase perhaps?

Yeah check everything and it has come to a conclusion that a tapered steered will not work with the bike/frame. Going to stick with 1 1/8" steer and thanks everyone for their information. :)
