I'm in the market to buy some new/secondhand forks after mine came up worse for wear after last week's off.

Bike involved is a 2014 Scott Scale

I've confused myself so my question is..Are 1.5” tapered the same as 1.25"-1.5" tapered steerer tubes or as I suspect are they different.

i think you'll find the Giant "overdrive" head tube is 1.25-1.5" whereas most others are 1.125-1.5".
