You must be looking at alloy or steel frames as pretty much all recent carbon HT's (and a fair number of alloy for that matter) are all tapered.
I don't know why you'd want to get rid of the WC SID, I lust after the carbon crowns.
It's also exceptionally performing.
No, you're right, that's the point. I love 'em so much I'm trying to change the frame I want, to fit the bleeding forks!
Believe me there are a lot of carbon frames that either will only take straight steerers OR won't take too kindly to a 120mm travel fork.
Yes, I know I can reduce the WCs to 100mm but that's not the point. I would like to build up a relatively light frame, not quite the 18lbs of my former Scott Scale, but under 20lbs say, with a slightly more relaxed and less "race" orientated feel.
For example, I've just landed on a couple of Ibis Tranny's which will take a 120mm fork and are at around 1400g. But yes you've guessed it that have a straight head tube. Hence my question about the RLTs.
I've looked at the new Kinesis KM810 but it's only recommended for up to 100mm. The Cannondale Flash 4 is lovely and light (980g) and has a 1.5" head tube but seems much more of a Race frame, like the ubiquitous Scott Scale and so on.
